Navjot Singh is a British writer, and photographer who first went to mainland China in 2003.

Navjot specializes in relocation issues, and is an expert on relocation, having been an expat himself in China, Hong Kong, and Switzerland for many years. Navjot's in depth knowledge of the issues affecting expats when they relocate to China comes across clearly in his book. When doing research for the book, Navjot not only lived an expat's life , however he fully immersed himself in the Chinese culture and way of living. In this way he got to experience what life is really like on the ground in China from an economic and cultural aspect.

Navjot was educated at Dulwich College; and later at Loughborough University where he graduated in with a combined Bachelors and Masters degree in Electronic and Software Engineering. He is fluent in spoken Mandarin. Navjot shares his hectic life between London, Guangzhou, and Shanghai.
