Found a few before moving to china at around 500 bucks in Hou Xian Dai Chen.
Your best buddy is Google my friend, although lot of it is bulls***.
Be careful the pictures you look at, its never what it seems.
Look out for land lords to! They are known to take advantage of expats by asking ridiculous amount of up front cash. 6 to 12 months rents in advance!?? crazy!

Good luck!

Rent prices have surged in the past year, so while in the past it was possible to find a 1 bedroom for under 2000 RMB a month, you'll be hard pressed trying to find anything "decent" and conveniently located (aka near a subway) these days for under 2500 rmb.

For a 1-bed flat in Dongcheng you may find something around the 3000 price range, but this will probably be an older flat. You're cheapest option is to move in with others.

You can still find one bedroom flats for around 3000 a month in central areas but these will be in old houses that are most likely infested with cockroaches and depressing, ugly furniture.

WOW! I live in GZ, it takes me 15-20 minutes by bus or metro to go downtown and i pay 1300 a month, this is why I like GZ more, you can make the same money as BJ or SH but the cost of living is SO much less (and I'm close to HK!)

A:I had a similar experience in HK. If I recall correctly, before or at the Z visa application, I had to submit ME from the ordinary HK clinic, where I explained why I need ME and I asked them to examine only necessary things (I don't remember the cost ...), and then ... I got Z stamp and when back in China, I had to complete another RP ME, which was on the employer, i.e. included in the Contract ...We've never discussed refund of payment for HK ME with my employer. Year 2013 ...I'd say, that is a regular thingy embassies around the world require, before issuing visas for LT stay in the country. "Vladimir Vladimiro-Witch ras-Putin" (LOL@your pronunciation ..) demands the same thingy before granting LT stay in Ruski.  ... Haa, 2013 was the Snowden's year. I was in Kowloon at the time of his landing .. with all these files ... I'm-Still-in-LMAO-State ... Cost for the ME in HK was around HK$ 2000/200 EUR, and ME was kind of swift, quicker and way shorter than on the mainland ... -- icnif77
