We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered...

"I came here to move in with my BF and he's been living here for few years already," remarked another expat who made the move to Beijing, China.

"If you are looking for a place to live in China, there are several options available to you. You can look online and search through various real estate websites that list rentals and properties. You can also contact a real estate agency, which often knows of listings that are not advertised online. Additionally, you can visit local newspapers and magazines in China to search for listings. Finally, you can contact friends or family who may have information about available houses, apartments, or other rental properties," explained one expat living in China.
