Soon to be expat Englishman in Foshan!

Hi all - first post. I'm from Manchester, England and if nothing goes wrong with the final stages of the visa process I'll be in Foshan (close to Guangzhou) in three weeks' time. Oh my...it sounds even scarier when I actually type it. It's nice to see some of you will be Guangzhou based but is anybody else going to be in Foshan. Hope all your preparations are going well :)

Hi Daniel. Have you tried the advanced search feature on this website? http://efenglishfirst.ning.com/profiles/members/advancedSearch It allows you to search for friends who are living in/moving to a particular city like Foshan.

I saw some of those they are very pricey I just wanted a head start that's all. However, I'll wait to see what school they have me at so I can get something close to work.

You can go on YouTube and type in something like "renting apartments in Guangzhou" and there's quite a few videos of teachers and other foreign nationals showing you round their apartments...that should give you at least an indication of what to expect - some of them look like they would be very pricy though!

I haven"t had any luck either. The couple that I've saw look to good to be true I also heard to wait until you get there to see them. I just wanted a general idea of what they look like and what I wanted so I wouldn't waste any unnecessary time.

Hi Sierra (lovely name!),

I've begun my search in earnest as I think it will be difficult finding something whilst still in the UK. The advice has generally been that you need to see the apartment as unscrupulous agents are using fake listings with the wrong photos. Most of the search results for me have been apartments to rent for tourists and not long term residential. I'll keep looking though! Have you come across anything yourself?

I will be going to Guangzhou also. Have you had any luck finding a good apartment website
