Q: Places to meet expats in Guilin

Hello,

 

I just moved to Guilin and would like to meet some expats.

Is there any place where expats like to hang out?

 

Thanks

There is a website for guilinexpats.com They have get togethers, I don't know anything about, never bothered. There are several small bars that expats hang out in on the walking streets. Walk down the walking street until you get to a raised platform with picnic tables, bar on the corner and one on the street to your right. Depending on your age, also a couple of discos on walking streets. Around the picnic tables you might meet a Chinese guide that will say hello, ''Jerry'', he's a nice guy. He knows where things are and can help you. PM me if you have any other questions.

Yes, I saw the the guilinexpats.com site, but it doesn't seem to have been updated for the past year or two. Thanks for the advise, I will check out the pinic table area.

A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
