    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 have no idea why you cant use the internet yourself. A simple "where to buy a public transport card hangzhou" and 2 seconds later I found the following information. Hangzhou Transportation IC Card Put Your Transportation IC Card on the Electric Locker Transportation IC Card can be used on most of the transport means in the city, including buses, water buses, some taxis and public bicycle renting. Transportation IC Card includes D, T and Z card, among which Z type is the most suitable for visitors. Z Card Applying and Reloading Z card can be applied for at most bicycle service spots around West Lake as well as the Smart Card Center. When applying for a Z Card, show your valid identification at bicycle service spot or Smart Card center and fill in the Application Form. CNY300 must be stored (CNY200 as credit caution money, CNY100 for consumption) when applying. Once applied, it can be reloaded at any reloading office of IC Card in the city. Usage Z Card can be used on bicycle renting, buses, taxi, water bus and parking lot. The ticket fare of city buses will be deducted at 91% of ordinary fare while full amount will be charged at the other places. Refunding When refunding, you need to show the valid identification you used when applying. If you ask for a refund within ten days since the last time you used the card, you can claim your refund at either a refundable public bicycle service spot or a Smart Card Center. All your credit caution money and balance will be refunded. If you try to claim a refund 10 days or more after the last time you use it, you can only claim the refund at the Smart Card Center. The refund procedure is as for refunding D and T Card. Ordinary Card (D Card) Applying and Reloading Anyone can apply for and reload a D Card at any reloading offices in town including the Smart Card Center. You have to store at least CNY50 on it when applying. Usage D Card has electronic purse function which can be used in some stores including China Post. It can be used on all the buses and water buses. Ticket fare will be deducted at 91% of ordinary fare on city buses while full charge will be deducted when taking water buses. Refunding When claiming a refund, you need to show the valid identification and the application you used when applying. 90% of the balance will be refunded and 1% of the balance will be charged as poundage, the rest of the money will not be refunded. All Purpose Cards (T Card) T Card have the function of most IC Cards; they can be used on buses, the ticket fare being deducted at 91% of ordinary fare. They can also be used for taxis and water buses with IC Card Processors. You need to store at least CNY50 on it when applying. If you store more than CNY200, it can be used on public bicycle renting. The applying and refunding procedure for the T Card is the same as the D one. Tips 1. Declaring the loss of a T or D Card would not be accepted. 2. Do not store too much money on the D and T card, since there is no compensation for lost ones. 3. CNY25 would be charged as maintenance fee when applying for D, T and Z Card. Where to reload the Smart Card? 1. Smart Card Center: 20 Long Xiang Lu, Yan An Lu Bus Stop 2. Branches of China Merchants Bank, Hangzhou Daily and some cell phone reloading stores can reload the Transportation Smart Card. Apart from these, some book stores and other kind of store that have the sign on it are all available of reloading. The reloading time of each place are a little different, some just work from 20th of the 5th of the next month.

    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)

    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!

    Foreigners have been scouting for a long time in China. Only the locals can not join. Scouting is not banned in China. Scout organizations that are run by foreigners are banned from having Chinese. We are putting together a Chinese run scouting program. While I am a foreigner working for them, I do not own the company and even if I have stock in the company it will never be enough to control it. This is a local owned and operated company. The other reasons scouting has had problems in China is their unwillingness to adhear to government restrictions. Boy Scouts of America runs several scout troops in China. But they require you to believe in a faith. They are not very picky, you just can not be athiest or agnostic. This doesn't comply with China Governement regulations and therefore locals are banned from the program. There are other political reasons as well. By creating a local run and operated program we are able to comply with all the local restrictions and admit locals as well as foreigners. This program is geared to locals first. Is your friend still looking for a troop? If he is a foreigner, I can point you in the right direction to finding one.
