I'm moving to Beijing in 2 days and need to find an apartment. My office is near Tuanjiehu station and I'd like to walk to work in the morning if possible. If not, then maybe 2-3 subway stops away. Looking at the classified directory of neighbourhoods as a Beijing n00b is confusing. I know Sanlitun is near and I think Chaoyang Park is close, but I'm not totally sure!
I'd like to live in a shared place with a bunch of people and I'd like to spend under 3000 for a room. Close to a gym would be really helpful (although I guess there's a gym near my office).
- Is this possible in the area?
- If not, how far out do you think I could go without getting serious commuter rage every morning?
Any help would be much appreciated!
