Chinese Guide to UK Living

London Chinatown Chinese Association published a comprehensive directory on UK life for the Chinese Community.

The “Chinese Guide to UK Living” will be distributed free of charges in Chinatown and among community groups from June. The Guide includes all aspects about living in the UK, from birth to funeral arrangements. CT Tang explained, with many Chinese people who were not familiar with the public services in the UK, and whose mother tongue were not English, the guide with all the information in Chinese, would become very useful as they settled in the UK.
