I am interested in Haizhu definitely.. I've heard "Guangzhou's Haizhu district devoted to exhibitions, a wide range of performances, and affordable booze offered as unpretentiously as possible in a world of nauseating pomposity." That just sounds interesting to me. I would love to live close to the metro. Would love to have some outdoor space, would be nice to grill as well as maybe have some plants! :) we should talk. I am open to other locations as well. I have been given an agent to work with as well when I get there, from someone who is there and had trouble with other agents.

Not necessarily looking for anything too fancy per se. Right now I have a 1br garden here in the States to myself, but am used to shared spaces. Would prefer to live close to downtown (Tianhe/Zhujiang New Town, Yuexiu, Liwan, Haizhu), but also not trying to break the bank, so I'm pretty open on location (if it's close to the Metro, I'm all for it). I imagine private outdoor spaces are hard/impossible to come by, but if one was available I would definitely be down for that (I love grilling).

Has anyone not found roommates for the September arrival?
Comment by Keira-Ellen Hart on August 17, 2014 at 3:31pm

Hi All,

I'm excited to be arriving in Guangzhou during October 2014 and will be looking for either one or two roommates. If anyone is still looking to share also please get in touch. I'll be working with kids and teens and would be looking for somewhere easy to commute if it's not central. You can contact me on email at keirahart1@yahoo.co.uk

Hello everyone! I'm going to be a arriving in Guangzhou, in Sept 2014! I'm considering getting a roommate to make my lifestyle a bit cheaper! I think it will also add to the experience! I am a very sociable person. I love engaging into conversation and hearing a persons story.. I am into the arts, live music, adventurous, and enjoy the outdoors! Would prefer to live in the Centre, but willing to live outside to save money. I'm from Kansas, and this Dorothy needs to experience other things in life! I have some traveling under my belt and would like to do more on my off-work time. If seeking a roomy, and you think it would work with me.... Email me @ lewilson919@gmail.com

I'm going to be starting in Guangzhou in Septemer and will be looking for a roommate. Trying to find a place on the cheap; I'm relatively quiet as a roomie, but am sociable in many contexts. I'm clean, but in the words of my current landlord: "not high maintenance" (which is apparently why he likes me). I go out maybe once or twice a week (restaurants/bars, not so much night clubs). I'm into traveling, working out, playing sports, coffee, live music, and am considering going back to school (online) to add to my teaching credentials. Thinking ~2000-2500 rmb/month. If interested, email me amvaughters@gmail.com

Hello teachers.
I'm going to be starting in Hangzhou in September and i am interested in finding a roommate/roommates. I am very friendly bubbly and sociable, so I think that I will find living alone in a foreign country very lonely. I am friendly and make friends easily, but I also enjoy my own quiet time. I like to read and watch good movies and series. I am very studious. I am a bit of a 'humanities nerd'. Haha. I am creative and artistic, enjoy photography and am a budding graphic designer in my spare time. I am responsible and considerate. Please contact me at natalie.mosdell@gmail.com :).
