Q: How to find people advertising apartments directly?

Seems the only other option is an agency. I honestly don't know where to begin...

Go for a walk and in between dodging e bikes look up at the windows and see who is advertising a place for rent  

In the north many put a sign and a number in the window facing the street

(and know they are not advertising Hookers) indecision

Does your local city have a ganji or 58 site?  Check out the main sites.  If your Chinese isn't great just use Chrome and most of it is understandable.  You can choose to search for rentals from private landlords, agencies or both.

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
