Andrew spent 5 months in Chengdu doing a hospitality internship. Alongside his internship, he was able to meet other interns from around the world through InternChina.

“It’s not just an internship, it’s a programme as well. So they organise trips in and around Sichuan Province, and even outside. You get to meet other English speaking people in China and socialise with them.”

The family host foreign interns for several reasons, including helping to expose their son Micky to new cultures and languages.

“The best thing about the internship has definitely been the freedom that I’ve had at work. Being so involved with all the foreign guests has meant that I have had reviews on TripAdvisor mentioning me[…] so I’ve had a lot of positivity from it and it’s been a great experience compared to maybe something that I could’ve got in Europe or in another Western country.”
