Q: How to find roommates in shanghai?

Hi,

 

I'm a young French guy and I will move in Shanghai as from next March. I have already spent more than a year in China during my previous experience, but this time I would like to improve my chinese for real. Is there any website where I could find chinese roommates who are interesting in having a foreign roommate?

 

If you have any plan let me know,

Ale

Um, if you provide free room and board, you will definitely get flooded with requests! Maybe even too many....

There is a Shanghai Expat journal in French for the French-speaking Shanghai community.  It has a classified section.  I will try to locate it for you and get the address.

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
