We asked expats what a typical home or apartment in China is like. They answered...

"Expat homes and apartments in China are typically spacious, comfortable and modern. They generally have high ceilings, wooden floors, and plenty of natural light, providing a warm and inviting atmosphere. Many expats choose to live in gated communities, which offer more security, amenities, and recreational options. In the larger cities, such as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, apartments often have nicely appointed, modern kitchens and bathrooms, as well as other amenities such as swimming pools and gyms. Expats looking for a more traditional experience may opt for traditional hutong-style apartments, which have been popular for centuries," commented one expat who made the move to China.

"I live on the 23rd floor of what is known as a fully-serviced apt building. Fully serviced means that they provide housekeeping six days a week. My apt is a modest sized three bedroom/2 bath place.No dishwasher or garbage disposal but does have access to western TV programming which is banned to the Chinese locals. It is centrally located so I can walk to many places I want to go to or easily flag down one of the little red suicide taxis that play road chicken games all over town. Like most Chinese made buildings, this place while only five years old is already showing signs of falling apart," remarked another expat in Tianjin, China.
