2 large rooms available beginning to mid July in Guangzhou in Central GZ (liede) .  This is a 4 bed two bath luxury apartment and is 200 m.

3400 rmb a month, plus bills and ayi.  We also have a cute cat! Photos to follow later this week!

Two rooms available in central part of Guangzhou, Liede.  The rooms are large with closets, and queen size beds.  They share a bathroom. The bathrooms has a separate shower and is a good size.  The apartment isself is very large with a great room.  The great room has living and dining combination.  You can get 20 people in the room comfortably.  The kitchen is a good size by western standards, two people can cook and still have room to move.  The fridge is large and has enfough room for four peoples food.  There are two balconies, which is rare.  The front one off the living room extends half the length of the apartment and looks out onto a park.  The back on off the kitchen is for laundry and is ten feet long!  There is enfough room to wash and dry.  The area is western friendly with the next street over has western and chinese food options.  This is also western style bars.  You cannot hear the street at night, which is nice.  The food options include: Russian, Middle eastern, Italian, Hong Kong, Korean, Indoesian, Irish, Subway, Pizza hut, Mcdonalds, and British.  The area has a lot of Europeans and Middle Easterners.  There are four coffee shops in five minutes, two local fruit and Veggies markets, five bars, three hair salons, and a supermarket.  The complex had a private gym and pool for the summer.  We are located four minutes from exit c of the liede metro. This stop is one stop away from new town, which is a central hub.  An advantage of this is... We have everything set up! These are the thing you dont have to worry about: installing internet, finding an ayi, getting around- established roommates who know things about the city, have a safe building.  You can REALLY just move in and relax!  Price per room is 3400 rmb a month plus bills and ayi every two week. Roommates are friendly and we have a cat who likes to play. If your interested please contact me.

I'm leaving SH in early/mid July and I'm looking for a replacement for my awesome room in downtown Shanghai.

The rent is cheap for the area (East Nanjing Road, Tiantong Road - Lines 2, 10 and 12). You can get anywhere in the city quickly and cheaply by metro (4RMB) or taxi (around 20 RMB).

Room mates are friendly and international.  The room has a large private balcony overlooking the Bund. One of the best views in Shanghai and the room is also river side (good for your feng shui).

The rent is 3100RMB a month, 3100RMB deposit.  Once more the rent is month to month so requires no long term commitment.

Hello Everyone, 

I arrived in Beijing May 13th and I am looking to possibly room with someone. I'm not picky about male or female. A little about me, I am a self proclaimed book worm, who also loves all things nerdy/geeky. I'm really interested in finding like minded people to explore with and try new things. I am always up for adventures. I would like to keep my budget under 4,000 rmb. I am a quiet person when at home but very outgoing in public and I love meeting new people. I'm looking for low key, laid back and quiet people to live with.

Hello Everyone

I will be arriving in China, Shenzen in july, looking to make as many friends and learn as much from people who are going to be in china or  are in china as possible.  I can be outgoing but much more laid back, very open minded and will appreciate any input about preparing for the process of getting ready.
