Q: what district/area is closest to Nanlouzizhuang metro

hello

 

wondering what area exactly that Nanlouzizhuang metro station (line 7) is in,  hard to find on maps as relatively new metro station, going to start there in september at a school close to the metro (havent been given name of school yet)

but for chaoyang government so no dramas on that score

 

not fimiliar with that part of beijing, so not too sure where exactly to look on mayi/ganji as regards area

happy valley/fatou seems a little expensive

 

any ideas info greatly welcomed as regards not so expensive area to rent, be it shared or solo rent

Ask your school to assist you with finding accommodation for your arrival - any decent school would help their FT.

You also need an address for your visa application anyway.

 

if when you arrive you don't like it, you will at least be on the ground to look around for yourself for something more to your taste.

 

there are underground maps of Beijing online - it is in the south east of the city, so it is not rocket science to find.

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
