Great question. I plan to be live in Chengdu soon and would like to return to college and get a degree, but would perfer to attend a college where the classes are taught in English.
Im looking forward to forum members suggestions...
I currently live in the US and have an Android LG Optimus cell phone. Would it be possible to take this phone with me to Chengdu and have activated there? Would they be able to unlock it and would I be able to access the internet from the phone?
If its not possible, what is a cheap alternative for a phone, service, and internet access?
I am an American who would like to relocate to Chengdu within the next 60 days. My plan is to go there and study the language and find employment. I am still researching everything and would appreciate any tips, advice, and suggestions to make the move go smoothly. Thak you in advance for your help.
Below are the topics that I need some help on:
Visa - Do I apply for a tourist visa and then later change it to a working visa?
Renting a room - Is there a website besides this one where I can search for a room to rent?
Job - What websites can I use to look for work in Chengdu?
Bank Account - What will I need to open a bank account there?
ID - Will I use my passport as my identification, or do will I apply for one there?
Transportation - Will it be easy for me to get around town without a car? I plan to take the bus or train to and from work. Do you recommend I get a bike?
What else do I need to know that I didnt mention in the topics above?
