• Should I bring cash? Will my credit/debit cards work in China?

    Cash is more preferred in China. It's easy to overspend in the first few weeks, especially if you're withdrawing vast amounts of RMB using your debit card from home (not to mention those extra charges).

    Cash is more preferred in China. It's easy to overspend in the first few weeks, especially if you're withdrawing vast amounts of RMB using your debit card from home (not to mention those extra charges). Visitors often can't believe how much they burn through in the first few weeks. Getting your Chinese account set up in the first few days will save your money for the essentials and save time. We’ll help you through the process and keep your spending sane upon arrival.

    Do apartments come furnished?
    Apartments in Beijing are a pretty mixed bag and can often be missing a couch, table...or curtains, but we ensure that all apartment options are equipped with the furnishings you require so you don't need to get familiar with the local IKEA more than you really need to.

    What are normal living expenses in China?
    Living in Beijing is relatively more expensive than in other Chinese cities. Our Chinese team estimates you may spend between $350 to $700 a month, but an American team member has lived comfortably on $100 a month. We recommend that you do bring more cash as it is not as convenient to exchange money in Beijing as one would think.
  • I heard it's tough to do short-term lease with Chinese landlord

    I heard it's tough to do short-term lease with Chinese landlord
    More challenging, but not impossible. That's why we are here to help. And also because most landlords prefer long-term lease, the price of short-term lease would be a bit more expense than long-term lease. We've been cooperating with local landlords for years so we have abundant experience of apartment selection and price bargain.

    What kind of clothing should I bring, and how much?
    Bring your "normal clothes" - Chinese youth dress conservatively but fashionably. Bring good shoes, as western sizes are sometimes difficult to find. Bring fewer rather than more clothes, as it is fairly cheap to buy clothes in China.
