Hey everyone.  There will be 3 rooms available coming up in the summer in the central GZ area, Tianhe.  It is located off of Liede Ave and Xing Sheng Lu.  The closest metro is line 5 Liede.  Please message me by direct email if you are interested and would like more details.  steven.ng555@yahoo.com

If you haven't already, add the program WeChat to your phones. It's the best thing to use here. It's similar to Facebook but without all the extra junk that goes with it. It's the way everyone keeps in touch. If you want to keep using Facebook, make sure you have a VERY reliable VPN prior to coming. Many of the people I talk with use Express VPN.

Hey everyone, I'll be arriving in Guangzhou in July! Would be great to connect with you all, possibly find some room mates and travel buddies!

Also, one quick question for the UK people, have you managed to get your degree authenticated/notarised by the Chinese Embassy yet? If so... How?! The site is quite difficult to navigate, so I'm a little stuck here.

I would strongly suggest reading Steven Ng's post. We were in the same onboarding group. If you are coming in on the 22nd of the month, bring more money than recommended. Deposits can be hefty and you won't get paid until the end of the 2nd month (if you come in July 22, you don't get your first pay check until September 1) Be insistent when viewing apartments. State upfront whether you want a western toilet. That will eliminate some apartments. As Steven said, be mindful of where the apartment is located. I am lucky in that my apartment is near the metro, and across the street from the train and bus station. Also-be ready for the humidity. It gets extremely humid in Guangzhou. Don't forget a good umbrella too. It's a great experience!

Hi Brenda, 

I think everyone coming in on June will be there on the 15th, so I should see you there!

Hey Derek,
When in June? If all goes as planned, I will be arriving from the US on June 15!
