Arriving in Guangzhou on the 23rd of August??

Hi guys, 

I'm set to arrive on the 23rd of August for induction. Anybody else starting around the same time? 

  • What is everyone's advice in looking for accommodation? I know we are staying in a hotel for the first 2 weeks to get ourselves sorted, is everyone waiting until then to look? I will be looking to share with people who are located around the same place as me - think I am in Tianhe district. 
  • Any advice for what VPN to download? 
  • Any essentials ye recommend to bring / get sorted before arriving? 

Feel free to add me, would love to reach out with people before heading off! :)

Hi Tara, i will be part of the group arriving September 13th. Hopefully you have connected well with those leaving with you. I used Astrill the last time i lived in china and it worked perfectly. It does cost but it is most definitely worth it. Im on Wechat as iunisivaiaku92 add me as looking forward to connecting with you :)

Hey Tara! I have the September start as well. I think we're all in the same boat on feeling a bit disorganized, should all fall into place quick once we get there! My WeChat is nelsolis17 if you wanna chat.

Well my start date is 23rd and then the 2 weeks starts from there so I'd imagine the same with yourself. Booking flights for the 22nd. Ya defiantly, I'll download it tonight and ya would be great to get in with a WeChat group before heading over! Really excited about it but only thing I'm dreading is the heat - 33 degrees at the moment. Sure will get used to it after awhile but not used to it here in Ireland - get all 4 seasons in one day here sometime :P

My start date is 13 September, which I think is the date I'm meant to fly in on. I know we have a 2 week induction, but I need to check whether that is before or after 13 September. I am feeling a little bit disorganised, too, because I'm in the period now when all my paperwork has been submitted and now I have to prepare my bags and everything. Glad to talk to you anyway. :) Me and some others on here are starting to use WeChat (popular in China) on here to stay connected in China. My username is Danxjc if you have it. Feel free to add me.

Cheers Danny! Haven't booked mine yet, should be good to do it on Thursday, last bit of the visa process being done! Looking forward to going over now, finishing up work here this week and get the last bits sorted! Date you coming over in September? Feeling very unorganised but sure once there, I'm sure it will fall into place with a pint in hand to settle in! :)

Hey Tara. A great VPN that I use in the UK is Windscribe, but I haven't tried it in China yet. I'm flying out in September! When did you book your flight tickets out?
