How do I meet people in China?
When we asked people living in China about club and activities where newcomers can meet others, they responded:
""That's PRD" magazine has a quality list of organizations and community events for each month and is well worth getting. Community events with the American Chamber of Commerce as well as Summer camp for the kids at the Utahloy International Summer Camp in Zeng Cheng (www.utahloy.com) helped our family meet many other expat families in the area," commented a person living in Guangzhou, China.
"Go out, meet people, ask questions or become a member of the Wanderverein Zhuhai (BTW its free and fun). Contacts you can find under http://www.wvzh.com," explained one digital nomad living in Zhuhai, China.
