Here's what TCG has to say about it. Doesn't look too inspiring but you could do a lot worse and it could be a good place as a base for visiting surrounding regions. Shandong, especially is steeped in history and natural scenic spots.

Is the job offer a good one?????

GUEST16139 DongYing city is very flat, not the fun place to live, but because there are many oil fields out there, so the job offer should be good compare to other city in Shandong areas. Also the transportation was very good in Shandong region, you can easily visit all the surrounding city.

I was offered a job through Wise English as well. I would be placed in Weifang. I am having a hard time finding information on this area as well. The school is through Wise English in Weifang (the Bai Hai english school.) Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated

Hi David, I lived in Shandong for more than 20 years and I don't think the air quality is ok in Dongying. I don't like the weather... But it's ok if you choose to like that place.... I guess I should say some encourage and nice words about that city as long as you get a job offer there... Emmm.... People are rich there because of the oilfield so that the price is not low at all. Sorry that's not nice... But with a higher price, you could find better things in a better quality... Good luck with it. And there're lots of sightseeings which are worth to visit in Shandong province. You could think that you are lucky to get a shorter distance to all the sightseeings...
