New Friends in Chengdu?
ps im 20 and in college hahaJune 24, 2011 at 7:26 pm #12423
Hey, I’m glad I found this site! I’m a 19 yr old college student and am going to be studying in Sichuan Daxue for a year starting in September. I’m definitely pumped to meet the locals, but I wouldn’t mind meeting some other expats either. (I do speak some Chinese but my reading is lacking and conversation isn’t as smooth as I’d like it to be. Should be able to get around though.)June 27, 2011 at 8:33 pm #12430

This thread makes me think @ 35 I’m going to be the oldest expat in Chengdu. LOLJuly 19, 2011 at 9:10 pm #12620
@7 far from it! There are a lot of 50-60+ year old expats in Chengdu. Personally I’m 29 and most of the Chengdu Living contributors (authors) are in our late 20/30′s.July 20, 2011 at 7:22 am #12631
I hope there will still be people come here and read this link. I have just arrived to Chengdu for few days. I will be here for 3 months for an internship. I am currently feeling very outcast and boring here, because I dont speak much Chinese and everyone in the office is doing their own thing. I wish to get to know new people, make some new friends and hopefully that will help me get rid of my homesick feelings.
I am a girl from the U.S (Boston) and my name is Tristy. I can’t wait to meet some of you from here.September 16, 2011 at 8:20 am #13401
Hey BGirl, if you read the thread, a lot of the places mentioned are good spots to start for meeting people:
Jah bar on the river by the big boat;
Paname near the south gate of sichuan university,
Bookworm on the south end of renmin under the over pass that goes to the airport
and Elias’ house where you can get free beer lao and a meal.
cheers and welcome to chengduSeptember 16, 2011 at 8:42 am #13404

hello all, i am also new to chengdu and would enjoy meeting some fine people of upstanding character with whom i can imbibe in cheap beer and good eats. i’m a 25-year old canadian girl, have lived in china on and off for a few years, currently residing in yulin and like live music, food and going oot! as i am currently working in an office with all chinese colleagues i’m starving for some expat friends so if you’re up for a drink then let me know.September 19, 2011 at 8:16 am #13438
I’m up for a drink, and my character is probably ok. I only have class to teach on Tuesday mornings right now, so I’m free basically all the freakin time.

I’m arriving in Chengdu sometime in mid October to teach English for a year. I’ll be all on my tobler-own for a time so I’m looking for English speakers to hang out with as I don’t speak a word of chinese…. Eeek!! Am I cray to think I’ll get by with the basics or should I be trying to learn a bit??
I’m from Ireland and while I look forward to experiencing life and culture in Chengdu and all that stuff, I really just wanna hang out for a while at first and settle into the place. Any suggestions for places with a bit of craic and banter?
Thanks…September 19, 2011 at 10:40 pm #13442
I don’t arrive until next week, so I’m not planning anything yet and don’t have suggestions. Just wanted to post because I’d never heard of the word “craic” in my life & now I’ve seen it twice in the past two days.September 19, 2011 at 11:06 pm #13443
ziich, i’d be good for thursday night, anytime after 7.30. machu picchu is south yulin area right?September 20, 2011 at 1:49 am #13444
