Greetings everyone,

I am looking to go back to both EF and China at the end of February (gods of the visa willing).  I am hoping someone can give me a heads-up on a fairly inexpensive place to rent.  I have seen rates from the scary cheap of 800, to the luxe of over 10k RMB. 

What I am looking for is a furnished studio/1 bed with basic cooking amenities, bedding, a TV and internet connection. It would be a huge plus for there to be a gym onsite (I'm in it for the treadmill and elliptical).

Also, I am a mildly competitive 5k runner.  Can anyone give me an insight into the general running culture in Hangzhou?  Where can I get gear?  What races are there other than the marathon?  I should also disclose I am a big chap with size 46 (12 US) feet who stands at about 193 cm (6'3").  I expect a few difficulties in finding off-the-rack clothing.

I should be arriving in Hangzhou near the end of June all being well with the visa.

Hi Nick, hi Sharon! My arrival is delayed to October due to a visa delay - local authorities are crazy busy with G20!

Take a look at rentals online, try hz.ganji.com for example. Use googlechrome's automatic translation tool.

Good Evening,

I'm headed to Hangzhou in December. I'm so excited. Please tell me what to expect and also how was your VISA experience?

Hi, I'm Nick. Should be arriving in early December. Does anyone know what rental costs are like in Hangzhou?

Hi there,

Just thought I'd introduce myself, I'm coming to EF in Hangzhou in October, but I already live in the Hangzhou area.

Hello All,

I am scheduled to arrive in Hangzhou in March 2015, so I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself.
