Bring more money than EF have recommended. I brought 16,700 RMB and I wish I brought at least 20,000. They don't sell tampons out here if you use them bring a year's supply! Plenty of jungle formula, i have been bitten to death!! Shampoo, conditioner, showergel, toothpaste, deodrant they sell out here. It's slightly more expensive than at home, but they have major brands.

I got out here in 3 months but, it's taken 4 months for a lot of people though.
It's a steep learning curve and there's a lot of training, teaching and general sorting out your life in the first month. Then, it'll start to settle down.
