  1. Hi there, I'm currently living in Singapore and will be coming to Hangzhou for a month in November, to on a project with Alibaba. This won't be the only time I'm flying to Hangzhou, however this is my first time. I arrive on the 6th of November. The company is going to put me up in a hotel around the West Lake area. (Zhejiang Province Zijingang Road Xixi Paradise International Tourism Complex) In Singapore I own a bike and bike every weekend. Is it feasible for me to rent a bike in Hangzhou and explore the outdoors? Is it safe? If so, where can I rent one? I'm also a vegan, so any suggestion of good vegan/vegetarian restaurants would be great. I enjoy doing yoga and usually travel with my ukulele. Any interest groups/meet ups I can socialize with? I'll have my evenings free and intend to meet a bunch of you here and enjoy my stay in Hangzhou. Thank you for taking time to read & answer my queries. Any information is greatly appreciated! Thanks :) Deepthi.

A: You have to start somewhere? We start by teaching you the basic movements and you take it from there. Q: I have never taken any type of martial art or dance class. Can I still try capoeira? A: Capoeira does not require that you have prior experience on any type of physical activity! Q: What if I am not flexible or not in best physical condition? A: Don’t let this discourage you! Capoeira is for everyone!!! Young or old, short or tall, girl or boy! Of course, the more you train, the faster you will see results! Q: How long does it take to learn capoeira? A: Think of it as learning a new language. The more of the language you learn, the more clearly you can express yourself to others. If your goal is to have a conversation with someone that consists of, “Hi, how are you?” and “I am fine, thank you”, you should be able to do that within a month or two. If you plan to discuss world politics or philosophy, be prepared to spend more time learning the language. Q: What language are classes taught in? A: English, Chinese and Portuguese. Our instructors speak English and Chinese, and are assisted in translation where necessary by students in the class. The names of movements are taught in Portuguese, as well as song lyrics and other important tools for communication. Q: What should I wear? A: For your first class, comfortable workout wear is fine. Should you decide to sign-up, we have uniforms available for purchase. Q: Should I bring anything? A: Open mind and positive attitude! Bring a water bottle.

  8. Hi! My name is Brianna. I am a single mother moving to Hangzhou in July and just wanted to get started networking and figuring out fun activities to do for when my 10yo daughter and I get there! I will be teaching at and living in the Binjiang district. Any suggestions on what to bring? What to buy there? Things you wish you knew before you got there? or Any general advice. Also, we are vegetarians. Any other veggies out there? What challenges are there for a non meat eater? Any and all advice is greatly appreciated! :) Brianna and Bella Also: Is there a music scene in Hangzhou? Any expats out there get together for music? I'm not a musician but I am into listening. Hoping live music isn't something I'll have to go to Shanghai for!
