In recent years, between Turkey and China economic and trade relations have been increasing. It can be said that Turkey's "Central Corridor initiative’’ and China's "Silk Road Economic Belt and 21. Century sea route Silk Road (B & R)” revival have brought more Chinese students to Turkey. For Chinese students, Turkey offers a whole new experience with language, culture, and lifestyle. In this study, the difficulties faced by Chinese students in their educational life and daily lives, social communication skills, financial difficulties and the worlds of thought and meaning related to the process of integration with Turkish culture were discussed directly through their experiences and discourses. The main purpose of the study was to determine the reasons why Chinese students chose Turkey for their education. Additionally, the aim of the study is to present the level of social integration of Turkish culture and their thoughts and experiences about Turkey in the educational process of the Chinese students at a descriptive level. As a result of the study, it was observed that the reasons why Chinese students chose Turkey for education is to receive education in Turkish, that Turkey is a secular and Muslim country, that they are interested in Turkey, that there is an opportunity to change in life and education, scholarship and person proposal. It has been observed that Chinese students with a low level of integration into Turkish culture prefer a segre life among themselves.
