There is no doubt that a native English speaker can come to china to teach English as a way to network and develop other contacts - that Guanxi stuff! however several important comments. The mainstream public education system wants native speakers with at least two years' other work experience. In the Wild West of the private sector one will suffer if not qualified. The schools will beat down on pay if you have not got experience and work can be unreliable. Finally, from case studies of my own contacts, that networking into other opportunities often ends up as starting own business or joining a start up. Not always good pay. Much risk. The idea that foreigners can come to China and work for major companies without the qualifications and experience to get such jobs back in their own countries is one of the myths of China that needs to be de-bunked.

If they are single and with no responsibilities, why not?

They are looking for new experiences,  ...

The travel and find oneself angle is very valid!  Going around the world teaching English, painting scenery and people if the skills, being a photojournalist.. None of these make loads of money, but it is cheaper than putting it into the hands of travel agents!

On balance no, not at present., for regular foreigners. It can be lucrative for certain foreign businesses and their executives!
