Hi everyone, glad to be in Pandaland this week.
I'm hoping I can get some questions answered.
First, I see many foreigners on e-bikes or electric scooters.
Is there a place that will rent these to foreigners or did they buy them?
Second, I was here for like one day in the past and was next to some open air mall with a black aesthetic for the buildings and with some black and silver signs.
I don't remember what it was called.
There is so much stuff here that I'm not sure which mall it might have been.
Does it ring any bells?
Third, how do you like living here and what are the language school options like re: student visas?
Those are bought scooters - I haven't heard about renting them in Chengdu partly as they're being increasingly regulated these days.
The open air mall might be Taikooli (Taiguli) by Chunxi Road metro station.
Living here is comfortable, but things are getting stricter, especially visas. The universities (Sichuan University, University of Nationalities, Finance & Economics University) can provide a student visa when you have singed up for a semester or more of language classes or a degree.
