New in Hangzhou

2 posts in this topic

Hi all!

Firstly, let me say that it was a great relief to find that a forum such as this exists for people to communicate with and help one another settle down in the awesome city of Hangzhou.


Secondly, let me introduce myself. My name is Rey and I am moving to Hangzhou (flight is this evening) with a friend of mine (Steve) from South Africa. 

We both recently graduated from our degrees and are coming to Hangzhou to teach English at public middle schools. 


Any advice would be greatly appreciated especially with regard to finding an apartment!

    • Greetings learned ones , Recently I decided to resign my current teaching position and gave 2 months notice . The company requires me to cancel my visa at the end of the notice period . Drat! as I had thought I might keep the visa but alas no . I would like to stay in China for a while as a tourist and would also like to keep up apartment during this time as a base. Can I keep the apartment as a tourist ? Thanks in anticipation.................

    • Look for the yellow bikes and just push the lock thingy. Often it automatically opens for some reason and you don't have to pay ;p
