I've only been in Guanghan on my way to Sanxingdui Museum. City seems fairly nondescript, probably a bit boring but not gross---quite a bit of new construction. It's only 30-40 minutes and RMB 16 to Chengdu via the express bus, so it's not like being marooned in the hinterlands. And for weekends, it's in decent proximity for getaways to other interesting places in Sichuan. I can't speak to the University/teaching situation.

Guanghan is a normal small city,nothing special to other Chinese cities.As a good transportation location and as well as good climate,the economy there is good.China Civil Aviation University is one of the major institutes train pilots,and the teacher's pay is good.

I went to Guanghan frequently for work and visiting my friends.One of them is living 1km closed to the university,and the other is still studying there.But myself know very little about the university,my friend told me it is the biggest base to train pilot in Asia.The university is a few kilometers out the city.

Guanghan was the old capital of the Shu Kingdom,30minutes by train from Chengdu,small city ,hardly see any foreigner in the street ,for me the university is much more interesting than the city.
