Q: Finding an apartment in Changchun for ESL teacher.

My girlfriend and I are looking for an apartment in Changchun now or soon.  She is already living in a place provided by her company, I will be joining her soon and we are looking for an apartment to share.  We would like a western style toilet, and a washing machine.  I am prepared to pay multiple months rent to find a decent place.  Any ideas on how to go about finding an apartment would be appreciated.  Being near the zoological gardens is definitely an option if something is nearby.

you can try an agent around the place where you want to rent....I used 58.com last time I need a place. Found a nice private renter and worked out great.

I second the agent idea, have done that myself and it worked out well, except for having to pay the agent fee I think, don't remember how it worked now.

 

The other thing I've done is figure out where you'd like to live and walk around the communities there looking for places to rent. A lot of people rent their properties privately and will put a for rent sign with the phone number in the windows.

I would contact the training schools in the city that have had to please foreigners with housing over the years for recommendations. I recommend the area around the Mayflower hotel if it's convenient for your work. Lived in the area in the past.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
