Hi Everyone!

I'm Kerry and my expected date of arrival is Oct 10, however I'm still waiting on my work permit. How long is the average wait time. I'm excited and looking forward to this new adventure.

I'm also looking for someone who's been there for a while to give me some great tips/advice on where to live, things to bring with me and to share your experience so far.

Hi guys, 

Is anyone arriving in Guangzhou, China in late August and is willing to share a 3 bedroom spacious and brand new apartment? 

Which is situated in Tancun (Tianhe area)... The pro's: You'll 2600 rmb or 2400 rmb plus you might not have to pay a deposit (In talks with landlord though)

If you want to get more info please contact me Wechat ID: Sibusiso0940.

Hello everyone!

I'm from Colorado and will be arriving in Guangzhou November 6th, 2018. Any tips on a smooth transition? Apartment hunting? Is it hard to find a studio? Better to live with others?

The list could go on and on... Hope to hear from you soon and look forward to arriving in China/meeting all of you!

Memrise Mandarin Chinese group.
As I couldn't search for a friend who is also using Memrise to help learn Mandarin, I've just created a group there instead. All welcome! Follow this link to join the 'China teachers' group and make your Memrise Mandarin even more marvellous:   https://www.memrise.com/group/183950/

Hi everyone, headed to Guangzhou for 23rd of August from Ireland. Excited but nervous at the same time. How are people finding it? As far as I knew, once arriving over and staying in the hotel, accommodation will be sorted from there. Do people recommend  doing this in advance of arriving? If so, I will be looking for a few room mates :) Be great to touch base with people arriving at the same time as myself :D
