    there are plenty of webs that you can find with all the info you need but if you are searching for info directly from laowai who work there. that may be difficult.

     

    I have been researching many cities around China about living, working, house price, foods etc and to see which has the best of all we want.

     

    thus far, Kunming has taken 1st prize.

     

    i heard parts of jiangsu are nice and according to what I have been told by many  locals, People from Jiangsu are supposedly highly intelligent.

     

    pm me if you need more info

    spent four years in Nanjing, a nearby city...All I want to say is that those cities get no heater in winter :(

    yeah...I still don't know why the heater is not a standard equipment for typical apartment around that area. people never complain about it? or people just used to it

    not that cold meaning...below zero temperatures?...i´ve been in BJ with -15C for two months...and really needed heat...but if CZ is southern...is as cold?...

    There must be other ways to heat the apartment...

    sounds good...much better than BJ cold...what about air?...being beside a river may result in a lack of pollution...or. at least much less...i must say i like cold rather than hot weather...
