You do face a difficult choice, as almost all cities with large （western) expat communities are whether very polluted (Beijing) or crazy hot in Summer ( Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, but also Beijing can be very hot in Summer).
I'm living in Xiamen. It's hot in Summer, but it's a very green city, there are trees literally everywhere and it's at sea side. For China it has few pollution.
But there are only few expats here, a couple of 1000 I have read in some article. I only occasionally see other expats here, but as a British you might like that there is a among expats well known British Pub, where you always can meet some expats.
No, i don't. Hell, even most piano teachers are terrible. That is why i said being technical is just a small part. And i think we're in an agreement at the moment. Still looking forward to hear you play though
Hi y'all. Were returning to HZ for cny for 2 weeks and I need ideas to keep me and the boys away from the dreaded in-laws and their freezing apartment for as much time as possible. Its been a while since we've been back so whats good for young kids now? We don't really wanna be trawling malls all day. The boys love being outside or being active.
on another note we've secured a car to borrow but how strict are the cops with foreigns driving? driven every time we've been back before without issue but getting wary of the government clamping down on foreigners doing illegal stuff (no chinese driving license for me)
thanks in advance
pps did Maya bar ever reopen somewhere new?
