Cheap communist block style lowrises, not so bad to live in if you have proper heating for winter, and VERY cheap.

 

The only problem, local cops might not let you register/live in there, the law says that foreigners can only live into gated communities of a certain standard.

 

It all depend on your local police station however, here in Foshan they let foreigners live wherever they want, that's not the case in nearby Zhongshan.

Depends on what you consider cheap. Small 2 bedroom apts can be rented for about 3500RMB in older bldgs in SIP.

I pay 2300 RMB/months for a serviced flat, one bedroom, modern building, in the SIP. You might look the plazas around the Liverpool Jiaotong university, they might have some available.

A:A few years ago, Filipno teachers were beginning to find acceptance in training schools. I think there were special requirements for them to legally get to teach in China. I know that many Filipino teachers found their way into training schools in the southern regions of China.  I do not think they get the same salary as a typical foreigner teacher from a western nation. The benefits are not as numerous too. They are asked to work longer hours. Basically, they are seen as cheap labor, compared to the standard ESL teacher. I have heard of some manipulation of visas and holding of passports. In other words, they are often treated as third-class citizens.  I know of one training school in South China that treats Filipinos very well, but it seems to be an exception than the norm. Extremem caution and due diligence is required for these teachers.  -- nashboroguy
