Q: What is living in Guangdong like?

Hi

I have a really good job offer in Guangdong. Since I've lived mostly in North China, I'd love to hear the pros and cons of S China/ Guangdong. I heard the climate is very good!

Guangdong is very big, which part are you thinking about working? I'm in Shenzhen GuangDong and it great here, never felt the need to change cities. I & others can tell you more if you tell us where you're planning on moving to in Guangdong.

Summer is unbearable, 5 mins outside and most people start sweating even the locals. Which is why the streets are near empty during summer after 9am and before 6pm, people stay indoors.

Zhuhai is a great city. The most famous attraction is the Zhuhai Chimelong Ocean Park which is the biggest over the world

I am not a doomsayer like the others.  I think Guangdong is great.  Guangzhou is certainly cosmopolitan enough and there is more than enough to do to be able to really enjoy China.  Zhuhai is charming if not provincial and Shenzhen is huge, artificial and somewhat overwhelming.  Yes, it can be humid during the rainy season but compared to the Dong Bei, it is just great.  And particularly in Guangzhou, a foreigner will not be subject to the incessant "laowai, laowai".  I am thinking about buying an apartment in Guanghou.

A: That would be an awful experience. I would call your embassy asap
A:That would be an awful experience. I would call your embassy asap, they might be able to suggest something or give you a temporary replacement or something. I'm sure they would have seen this before.You may also need something from the PSB to say that you still have a valid visa in order to leave the country. Do you at least have a copy of your visa and passport front page, or can you get one?  If you have been working here your employer would probably have copies. In the mean time, turn the place upside down trying to find your passport.Good luck mate.   -- Stiggs
