Community & Clubs

After you and your family has settled into your new home it's time to get out there to check out the scene.

Here in Beijing we have a quite active community with a wide variety of fields of interests. From religious groups to sports activities, from charity to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Dancing classes, Tea appreciation lectures and golf lessons, Flower arrangements, Lady's Association and computer clubs and so on......

We have listed only a small selection of those clubs - the whole list would fill a book...  But we will be glad to help you find the club of your choice.
