Busy local restaurants with huge varieties of dishes can be found absolutely everywhere and are often open till the early hours of the morning. The city also has plenty of Western amenities as well.

Here are some quotes about Hefei from a few of our past and current teachers:
Hefei is a shining example of the East meets West dynamic; a place in which any expat can learn a lot about the world and themselves.
~ Garris Armstrong
Hefei has allowed me to experience something completely new, but also feel as if I have a second home in Asia. A big city with a country heart.
An increasingly international city with a flowery center.
