Q: Where can I find magazines for expats in Shenzhen?

For all of you living in Shenzhen...

 

I live in Hangzhou and I cannot go to Shenzhen myself, however my company will be welcoming two British girls going to the Shenzhen area for a cultural exchange program. They will be coming to Hangzhou for an orientation and training camp and we usually include such kind of magazines in the Welcome Package we give them.

 

So now I am sending one of our Chinese colleagues to pick up a couple of copies for me. Unsurprisingly, when I asked her for this favor she replied: "Sorry, I don't know where to find them". 

I am talking about publications such as "That's PRD" or even others I may not know about. Where can she pick them up? Here in Hangzhou it is usually at bars, cafes, hotels that expats usually go to. 

 

Any suggestions? I need the exact names of places if possible...

 

Thank you so much for your help!

I can't say for Shenzhen whether or not they have City Weekend or Time Out (maybe for Guangzhou?) but you can always have someone check any expat bar/pub/restaurant for you.

I didn't pay attention to such magazines, but the most likely place to find it would be the expat bars/restaurants in Shekou, Seaworld (metro stop has the same name) or in Futian, Coco Park (metro stop is called Shopping Park).

I'm sure in Shenzhen you can find everything required just across the border.

You can buy magazines in Bookcity. Its located in Futian right next to the Shenzhen library and musical hall. But its a bit expensive.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
