  1. Haha, “Biker chick” in British English is a chick who rides motorbikes! bicycles are EVERYWHERE! Can you rent one easily? Google “China bike share”, Mobike, Ofo, etc. though they are poor quality single gear city bikes. If if you want to rent a good bike then I’m sure there are places. Most scenic spots have bikes to rent if varying qualities up to good mountain bikes.
  2. You won’t be able to rent a motorbike legally. China doesn’t recognize non-Chinese driving licenses. You’ve also got the issue of Chinese drivers to deal with driving standards here are generally bad. For Vegan/Vegetarian restaurants I’d read the Happy Cow website can be helpful for finding listings.
  3. Business visa to china

    As Bluepasta suggests, a business visa won’t allow you to live anywhere in China without doing regular visa runs. Entries are generally limited to 30 or 60 days. Meaning you’ve got to leave China every 30 or 60 days to restart the clock. How are you going to manage that from Hangzhou?

    You could also try but the forums there now seem to be a shitfest of arguing cliques & trolls
  5. Family Emigration from South Africa

    @NewTeacherOnTheBlock I'd agree with Fionn that users here won't be able to advise much. Though I'd doubt your school could help. What sort of "construction" is he into? A general builder/tradesman is not going to get a work permit. China has millions working in construction. If he worked at a higher level then hi might have a chance but I've never come across anyone yet working in construction
  6. Send actual degree + authenticated degree?

    They don't need the original for the first part of the work permit authorisation. They only need it after you arrive in China. Scans are good enough for the first phase.
  7. Bloody profile spammers!

    We all know you're special...
  8. Come on mods! Breakfast time and spammers to ban! I've had 15+ spam comments on my profile this morning, others must have had the same. Bloody bots!
