Q: How can I search for an apartment (long-term) in Xi'an online?

My husband and I are moving to Xi'an in May 2014 for initially 3 years. We are going to work around the area of Furong Lake and would like to rent a property either around there, or outside the city in a place with nice views.

 

Any advice would be very welcome

Thanks

I would initially ask your employer to help you get a place to live, maybe for a month or so until you have settled in. Then once you become more used to the city, find a place you will be more happy to live in for the remainder of your time in Xi'an . Trying to get a place sight unseen might not be a good idea and leave you open to being scammed.......

Alternatively, any poster who already lives there might know of a suitable location.

Get a friend who read/write Chinese to look at soufun.com.

 

A few villas are situated (South) at the foot of the mountains of Xian transport is nearly nonexistent if you choose to live in that area. Few of my friends live in Gaoxin area which is the main CBD which has most things foreigners want to have.

Prices on Soufun will never be real, those prices are 2 or 3 years before.

 

Just go to the subway or take a bus thats near your work and try to find interesting areas and adventure to look for an apartment.

 

I use to get out of every subway station before I got  car just to see what was up stairs.

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
