lfie’s Academy is a Western-managed school for young learners in PANJIN China, a major oil-producing centre in Liaoning Province. With a population of less than one and a half million, Panjin, also known as ‘Home of the Cranes’, is considered a small city in Chinese terms. If you enjoy nature, the Shuangtaihekou State Natural Reserve, a marshland, which over 321 species of animals and rare birds call home and the Red Sea Beach are nearby. This is a popular tourist area for people from all over China. The fascinating history of Liaoning Province can easily be explored in the provincial capital, Shenyang and the port city of Dalian which are only an hour’s journey via the famous bullet train. China’s capital and cultural hub, Beijing is only a four hour trip by bullet train.
