    As I'm sure many of you have experienced, finding good competent sales and marketing is very difficult. And the concept of 'initiative' is a complete unknown. I've had a 'professional' marketing person say they don't know how to contact a university to organise a seminar there... And the number of people who don't bother following up on leads is ridiculous!!! So, has anyone actually managed to find that incredibly rare breed of person who can actually do what they say they can? I'm in need of good people... not just people who say they're good

    "I am really looking forward to experience Hangzhou and immerse myself in the Chinese culture." No, you're not. And no, you won't. What we think of as 'Chinese culture' isn't actually here :( It's history.. long gone! Think of what Christmas means to most in Australia now... compared to what it used to mean and its origins. You'll feel vastly more at home here than what you currently imagine! (I know - I sound jaded and pessimistic. But, come back to me in a year and respond) As said above - China isn't a coffee place. But, there are some cafes around that aren't too bad.

    For us, we found that Servcorp was too expensive. We found a small business that rents an apartment in a semi commercial building was our answer. We pay half of the 3,000rmb monthly rent. It has 2 bedrooms that have been turned into offices and then a large siting room with table and chairs and a couch and armchairs as shared areas for meetings etc. There is a kitchen and a bathroom also. This is enough to give us what we need. The internet is paid by the other business as they are there 7 days per week and are happy to share. So we have an address, somewhere to have meetings etc yet we don't need o be there al of the time.

    Hi Chris, We are in the US now to process all the authentication docs for my husband who has been teaching in China for 5 years and this year they ask for these for renewing resident permits or new permits and visa ( police clearance base on fingerprints, Masters degree and our marrige certificate). We just went to UPS store to get all docs notarized, drove to the secretary of States to authenticate the copies and sent them to agency to process them in Chinese embassy. Then we just send the scanned copies to the HR and just need to present the original ones when we arrive in China. I guess you might need it too, have you got a work visa yet? PM me if you want to know more details. Hope it helps, Gev

    Hi everyone. I am (visa permitting) supposed to be arriving in Hangzhou in early to mid December. I am a recently qualified EFL/ESL teacher and am moving to start a job with EF. I have joined now mostly to gather information prior to arrival but also to start the process of hopefully meeting fellow expats once I arrive. I am not sure how much information is required here so if the following is too much or too little I apologise. Apart from being an English language teacher I have a PhD in history. I love football, music, reading, history and current affairs. I hope to stay in China for a few years and cannot wait to do some exploring. My current list of 'must visit' places includes The Great Wall, Terracotta Army, and Hong Kong, but I imagine I will add more later. I guess that's it for me for the moment other than 'hi' once again. Regards Meylan1910 (Nick)

    I worked at a school with a HAIDA teacher, eventually found out the school was paying Haida 14,500 per month. The teacher saw 7,500 of that. That's a BIG chunk, 52% in fact. They told her they would pay for her TEFL Certificate before she came, then told her once she was here she needed to work for Haida for 2 years to get that. Suffice to say she quit after one year. Haida is a beginners trap for teachers coming to china for the first time (in my opinion). If you are a native speaker, have a degree and TEFL certificate you are much better off working directly for a school (with zero % of your wages going to people who don't deserve it).

    Considering that Chinese girls (east Asian women in general) lack curves, legs have become a form of erotic expression. Whats butts and boobs in the west, legs are in China.

    "Do u consider chinese as one group?Not individual?" That's actually an important question. And it goes both ways... Most people will usually see 'others' as one group (ie, 'others'). Most of 'us' would see Chinese as one group (personally, I'm trying to use the term 'mainlander' rather than 'Chinese' - there are characteristics of mainlanders that aren't always - perhaps often - seen in non-mainland Chinese). Do mainlanders see non-Chinese as just one big group of 'foreigners' - and thus, deserve a different type of treatment to their Chinese brethren? Sometimes this treatment is favourable to us (getting away with stuff that mainlanders wouldn't - or wouldn't even try to get away with, eg banking issues, traffic, etc). Sometimes it is unfavourable (taxi drivers doing the 'ting bu dong' - even though China has so many regional accents, being ripped off by small businesses, the scams (yes, I know many Chinese are targets as well - but if you ever notice 'beggars' - quick 'please give me money' to a local, hang around for 2 minutes pleading and begging from a white face!) In my country, Australia, when I speak to a non-caucasian face, I still expect to hear good old Auslish (Australian English) - it doesn't matter the ethnicity, I expect that the person will speak my lingo. If not, ok, that's cool. In my country, we can be BOTH Australian, and (insert other nationality). But, they're still Aussies. Will that ever happen in China? Can a white or black person ever be considered 'Chinese'? Or, will we always be considered 'foreigners'?? Evidence from those who have Chinese spouses and kids seems to suggest, at least for now, no! Will foreigners ever get beyond being a trophy? Someone to gain face by? Also - are there certain characteristics - behaviours - of certain groups of people that almost force us to see them as a group? Or do the individuals we identify stand out above (or below..!) the rest? Obviously, by 'behaviours', I'm clearly making the distinction between the colour of one's skin, or one's language or accent. For many people new to this country, yes, we do see certain behaviours and characteristics across the broad spectrum of the local Chinese population - or at least, across various spectrums within it. One such trait is the almost total and complete unwillingness to try to debate particular issues close to the heart with an open and clear and logical mind. The Taiwan issue is a perfect example of this. Taiwanese consider themselves a nationality. As do virtually all other nations. The only exception is China. Given that we have new countries all the time - South Sudan, Bosnia, even Ukraine technically - it seems odd that the reasons that we (and China) are willing to accept nation-status, and yet this is not given to Taiwan. I've never yet in my 5.5 years, met a single mainlander willing to concede that this island is a nation in its own right, hard won with blood and tears. There was a war. Many died in that war. Taiwan successfully defended itself from mainland China. Successfully enough to have its own government, its own money, its own language (ie, not Simplified hanzi), to have its own foreign policies and international trading agreements, and even have its own entry and exit requirements - ie, a visa! If I go from Xiamen to the Taiwanese island of Jinmen, I need to officially leave P.R. China, and I get a Taiwanese stamp when I get to the island. And the reverse is true. If I had a single entry visa for China, it would be used up if I went to Taiwan. There also seems to be a very strong willingness (complacency?) to accept things that are obviously unfair, or not thought out well. "China logic". This is most obviously exemplified by the "no why" mentality. The unquestioning of 'authority'. The willingness to accept, and even participate in, corruption. "Oh, but it can't be changed!" Really? How do you know? have you tried?? The 'Authorities' are flawed humans - not infallible gods.... And, a certain lack of empathy - such that there are stand-out examples of when empathy is shown. Of course there are many Chinese people who are extremely helpful and friendly. But there is also a very large amount of people who see other people as just.. 'other'. It also is seen in day to day activities - an almost complete blindness to the existence of the value of other people... ie, 'me first'. How many Chinese people will hold open a door for another person? How many think that getting the seat on the bus or subway is more important than showing respect to one's fellow human beings? How many put money above others' health and well-being? Lastly, there seems to be this total unwillingness to either a) not let foreigners complain about China, or b) to instantly compare with America. Firstly, we're sure that the things we complain about are the same things that the locals would complain about as well! So, isn't it better to have our voice heard along with yours, rather than the "then why don't you just go home?" And, if not already noticed, the world doesn't revolve around either China or the US!!! The younger generation is changing some of these perceptions (which, by saying that, suggests that the older generations all fall into one big group, and all follow particular stereotypes). But some things are deeply ingrained, it would appear. And change is going to take a LOT! There's a lot of resistance to real change. Now - what are 'foreigners' like??? :p (now, ppl, flame away! :D)

    Thanks, Popcorn Sutton! I will be going to QIngdao over New Year's, but I decided to do a mini-splurge (an additional 150 RMB) and take a flight around noon. They had the cheap flight for around 315 RMB from HGH to Qingdao at 7:40am, but I decided to sleep in and get to the airport later in the day. This way I can land in Qingdao and be energized and ready to party/ring in the new year! Otherwise I was nervous my original plan of flying there at 7:40am and taking a power nap after arriving wouldn't materialize for whatever reason and I would arrive and be drained then fall asleep on NYE around 10:30p, lol. So, this way I can wake up around 8-something AM, get ready and head to the airport then fly out around noon! On that note, if any of you have been to Qingdao outside of the Beer Festival time in August, please advise me on good places to get the 2 RMB Tsingtao beer in the small plastic bags! I want to drink Qingdao-style!

    With a VPN, Google Maps is good for bus routes. Click on or just hover over the bus symbols and you'll see bus stop names. Baidu maps has similar functions. HIS = Hangzhou Intl School? The 197 bus goes down YuGu Road (parallel to the west side of the Yellow Dragon Stadium). You can change to another bus (172???) after you reach the big interchange bus station just south of the river. Good luck!

    Interboys (Mr 3 posts), who are you? This is the first time you've posted in this thread. Why should people post their WeChat IDs publicly just because you ask them to? About which group are you speaking??? FYI, as I see Misc mentioned on this thread a year ago, there is a "Hangzhou Business Network" group on Linked-In. Good luck to all Business Networkers and Socialisers in Hangzhou...!

    You're welcome. There are. Lots of older posts for some reason have a problem with the reduced font size. I can't go back and edit them all though... If someone brings an informative post like this to the mod or OP's attention they can re-edit. If you really want to see a post though and the font is tiny, just copy and paste the text into something like Notepad or Textedit then you can read it in normal size.
