About Us

If you are reading this, you are probably living in Chengdu or about to move here. If you are not familiar with the city, we have good news for you: Chengdu is a fun, vibrant place to live with an active international community. Sichuan people say that Beijing is all about power and Shanghai is all about money, but Chengdu is all about leisure!

Currently, Chengdu International Women’s Club has over 450 members and counting. We are a diverse group of women from all over the globe, including the US, China, France, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, UK, Malaysia, Singapore, Canada, Philippines, Japan and more. We have an enthusiastic committee who run our regular activities and work on developing new ones.

If you are new in town, you may be feeling a little overwhelmed, so come along and meet others in the same boat, as well as people who have been around for a few years and can answer your questions. If you are an old China hand, come and meet some new faces.

CIWC is a great way to make friends from around the world and exchange news and views about life in Chengdu!


For those of you who do not know, the CIWC sponsors an Annual Holiday Bazaar each year.   This year is our 9th annual Holiday Bazaar and it will be on November 22, 2014.  So, save the date!  At the Holiday Bazaar, we come together to celebrate the holiday season with food, drink, games for the children, a visit from Santa Claus, along with opportunities to buy unique holiday presents. It is a great way to have fun and raise money for  local charities.
