But most of the price is higher from what am expected. It might be cos of business district area or near to the city center. However need your kind assistance or advise which the affordable area that can get within my budget and near the Metro station. My office is located at :8F,Building C7, Tianfu Software Park, No.81 Tianhua </span>2nd Road, High-tech Zone, Chengdu (成都市高新区天华二路219号天府软件园C区7号楼8楼)

Apartments near the software park can be pretty cheap, from what I know – just perhaps the online site you’re browsing doesn’t display cheaper apartments, it’s always better / better deals if you find a place when you’re here in person and go to the complexes directly (ask guards) or the little rental agencies near the complexes (most have them). I’d expect a smaller apartment decorated reasonably nice to cost no more than 2krmb/month, I know a foreigner who pays much less than that there.March 6, 2016 at 2:52 pm #49798
Yes, i’ve been searching for an apartment to rent and all the ads shows rent more than 2k/month. Quite give a headache to prepare initial cost on the 1st month. With your info here, it really are useful to me. Is the guard there can communicate in english? Or do i have to prepare a mandarin dictionary?March 6, 2016 at 3:12 pm #49799

Or do i have to prepare a mandarin dictionary
Likely no English and likely need to have a local along, I don’t know if the process is the same but long ago it was typically just provide a pack of cigs and ask about apartments for rent, and they’d give you contact info for landlords renting. The other option is the agencies, but again, likely not much English. If you’re looking for apartments only in English you’ll probably only find higher priced apartments.. really is suggested to seek help from a local/colleague – or ask the company that’s hiring you if they can get someone there to help on your behalf, surely they’d be willing to help prepare an apartment for someone they’re hiring/moving to China, no?March 6, 2016 at 11:27 pm #49808
