    James from Miami, FL!

    Hi! There are some great hiking spots in and around Hangzhou, although they can be very crowded on nice days. Hangzhou is a beautiful city. I've only been here a couple of months, so I can't offer much practical help, but even with very little language ability I've managed to get around and do most of what I need to do. Good luck with your preparations

    Welcome to Hangzhou!

    Background Check

    This was my husband's experience as well. The lawyer we consulted warned us he might need an FBI background check, but it turned out not to be the case. I don't know under what circumstances that would have been required.
  4. I'm getting tired of always fishing for correct change and would like to get a card to use on the bus. Can someone tell me how/where I can get one? Thanks!

    Anti-pollution face masks?

    My family will be coming to Hangzhou in the near future, and one of my husband's Chinese co-workers mentioned to him that we should purchase anti-pollution masks here in the U.S. What specifications should I look for? Any particular brands you recommend? Is this something "everyone" wears in Hangzhou? Thanks for any advice!

    LOL. I've already been warned I'm too polite and patient to live in China and I will need to become much more assertive!

    Arriving in Hangzhou in October

    Thanks. My husband's company is sending us. It will be my first time in China; he has traveled for business but never more than 2 weeks, so figuring out the logistics of actual daily life will be new for both of us. I am frantically trying to learn enough Chinese to not feel completely helpless.

    Arriving in Hangzhou in October

    Hi, everyone! If everything goes as planned, my family and I will be arriving in Hangzhou in early October for a stay of 6-12 months. I have a million questions but will spend some time looking around the forum before I start asking, since I'm sure many of them have been asked and answered before. We are very excited and a bit nervous. I'm glad to have a place to learn what is in store.
