How to Live for Free in Beijing: An Artist's Guide

 

 

BEIJING — Like many art students, Zou Yaqi often worried she’d be unable to afford to live in Beijing after graduation. So, earlier this year, she decided to set herself a daunting challenge: Survive in the city for three weeks without spending a single yuan.

It turned out to be a piece of cake.

I think the most interesting part of the article is this quote...

 

"Though I'm poor I was able to enter of the world of the rich".

 

The article then goes on to say she makes 800 yuan a day ($125) as a part-time student on top of the 3,500 ($550) bursary she gets from her parents each month.  That's a better gig than most teachers.  Is that what makes you poor in beijing nowadays?

Eating at buffets, sleeping for free on luxurious lobby sofas, that girl did pretty well.

 

There's your challenge icnif, if you put on bright red lipstick and buy a fake designer handbag I bet you'd do much better than her. Instead of sleeping on sofas you'd have guys inviting you to stay in their 5 star rooms, if you play your cards right they might buy you expensive phones, pay to get your hair done, your legs and back waxed.....

 

Forget about teaching English as a NNS, this could be the perfect big money gig.

A:I'd say no, you don't need working permit to work for Chinese Co. remotely, i.e. by not residing in China.Best advice on that you'll get from your employer. https://www.china-briefing.com/news/china-foreigners-work-permit-application-and-renewal-recent-changes/ See this part: However, because a valid resident permit is one of the primary requirements for the renewal of a work permit, without a valid residence permit, expatriates stranded outside China may not be able to renew their work permits anymore. ... or in other words, if you don't reside in China, work permit is also not required. Some more details about Work visa requirements .. https://www.hongdaservice.com/blog/china-work-visa-requirements-what-you-may-not-know -- icnif77
