Title says it all. Can anyone recommend me specific neighborhoods or areas of Chengdu that would be good to look in? I just have loose criteria:
2000/yuan a month or less (my share of the rent at least, total rental cost higher if I have roommate(s)
2 or 3 bedrooms (maybe find 1 or 2 roommates)
Not absolutely disgusting (but a little bit is ok)
Good, cheap places to eat and get drunk within walking distance are a plus
Less than 45 minute bus commute to or from Wangjiang campus
These are all loose requirements and I’m willing to sacrifice one thing if it significantly boosts another.
I read the “5 Steps to Renting an Apartment in Chengdu” already. Good guide. I’m ready to start really searching. I fly into Chengdu on August 27, and am gonna be “couch surfing” until I can find a place. My semester starts September 9, so hopefully I can find something good before then.
P.S What is the fastest internet I can buy in Chengdu? and what is the ballpark price on it? My job relies heavily on the internet, so decent internet is important.
