There are no real record shops here, have to head to Hongkong for that. Yes there are the one or the other urban fashion shop or "DJ school" but their selections are tiny and rather random and in any way pricey.
And considering the hearing abilities & quality of sound installations (not to mention taste) vinyl would be a bit of a spoil.
As Astrill seems to not just give a damn anymore and customer service being underwhelming in their help I bought a 1 month ExpressVPN with Bitcoin.
Took me a couple of reinstalls and several customer support interactions before they send me a download link to a rather old installer version that works. Still there are websites that I can't open, and some only work temporary. Speeds are not impressive either. Expensive, slow and buggy. Meh I think I will ask for for the money back (30-day money back guarantee).
Learning Mandarin is a full time job, part time won't get you far.
That said private schools won't be able to help you with visa unless you offer to teach English (or other Western languages) in exchange - which leaves the unis corygo already mentioned.
Does anyone have experience with packages send from abroad being affected by this new taxation?
Apparently there are now also tighter checks at airports if you enter the glorious PRC.

China's cross-border e-commerce bids farewell to 'tax-free' age
tells me if the value of the order is above RMB50 there is now a 10% tax. And I can't order stuff abroad exceeding the value of RMB2000 and total of RMB20,000 a year unless I pay an extra additional tax on taxes.
Since they only mention cross border e-commerce retail. How about personal shippings aka gifts from friends and family?
Any additional insight would be appreciated
If you want to make a bit of profit you should first get to know some of the clients they will tell you what they would like and there are not too may of them. Very few people and DJs have vinyl collections, so it's all still in its infancy. But generally Chinese consumer market demand falls into two categories: famous/ big or cheap.
This topic just got more interesting.
"Police across Country Probe Unlicensed Vaccine Dealer's Business Ties
Authorities look for 300 people connected to mother-and-daughter pair who traded in vaccinations but lacked licenses and refrigeration facilities"
So how would I know what I get is not fake, or not expired or not stored the proper way and thus useless or even dangerous?
