Discussions, advice and a great community

Thanks for all the great advice, it is really helpful.

I was thinking that it would be great for people in the future to be able to see your advice. At the moment we are writing on the walls of each group and while that is ok, soon the information is going to be lost with the number of posts. I was thinking that we could start more discussions in each group and then this can focus people on information that is for each question.

What do you think? I will start some more discussions and it would be great if you could re-post in the discussions.

Hi all! I'll be heading to Shenzhen this coming week and was hoping to get some advice on apartments / finding roommates before arriving. Is it fairly easy to find an apartment via the realtors and are there other resources to look at to help get a feel for what's out there? Thanks!

Hello fellow foreigners, setting your self up in China can be scary, finding a flat and buying furniture for your apartment, Registering at the police station and so on.. I have a Chinese friend who offers a service to help you become settled here. He is also a super nice man with a car so can ferry you around the city, any questions, just ask. :)

Hello, I will be joining you guys in Shenzhen next week and was wondering two things. First, is there anything you regret not bringing? Second, will long hair on a man be a problem culturally? The dress code that I received just said that hair needs to be clean and neat, which it is.
