KoreaWe are proud to launch our new city guide for expatriates in Seoul, South-Korea.

Seoul is the capital of South Korea and is one of the most highly populated cities in the world, located in the north-western part of the country on the Han River. With the establishment of South Korea (the Republic of Korea) in 1948 it became the capital, except for a short time during the Korean War.

The tower of Seoul, South-KoreaThe traditional heart of Seoul is the old Joseon Dynasty city, which is now the downtown area, where most palaces, government offices, corporate headquarters, hotels and traditional markets are located. To the north of downtown is Bukhan Mountain, and to the south is the smaller Namsan. Across the Han River are the newer and wealthier areas of Gangnam-gu and surrounding neighbourhoods. Yeouido is a large island in the middle of the Han River and is home to the National Assembly, the major broadcasting studios, and a number of large office buildings, as well as the world's largest Presbyterian church. (More)

Guide for expatriates in Hong Kong

09 April, 2010 23:22  EasyExpat EasyExpat

ChinaWe are delighted to launch our new guide for expatriates in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong is situated between the South China Sea, the Pacific Ocean and the Taiwan Straits, and has several deep natural harbours protected by mountains.

With a population of over 7 million people squeezed into an area of 1104.3 km2,Hong 
Kong Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated countries in the world, although many of the outlying islands remain uninhabited. It is still in the midst of land reclamation and is already bigger than it has ever been. The two official languages are Cantonese and English and the population is made of 94,9% chinese, 2,1% filipino and 3% others (mainly europeans). 

Runned by the United Kingdom, the handover to China happened on the first of July 1997. The handover did not change fundamentally the way Hong Kong is administrated apart from some symbolic changes like the word ‘Royal’ has been dropped for most institutions and the post boxes are now green rather than red. (More)

StarWe all wish you a very happy year 2010!Star

Same time each year, the end of 2009 is a period to think about what has been achieved and what will be done in 2010.

  • new forums: a global makeover of the forum to create a community for each destination;
  • new functionalities for the classifieds, with a better presentation and subscription;
  • more guides: Beijing, Prague, Rio de Janeiro, Seoul... etc;
  • many others including more proper translations, blog articles...etc.
