PostSubject: Thinking of moving to Changshu but can't find any information....please help!    Wed Jul 30, 2014 2:41 pm

Hi All,

I'm currently considering a job offer in Changshu, a very good job with a very good company.

However, i can't find much information on the place from expats that have moved there!

It seems like no one uses this forum anymore which is a shame because it seems like the only one.

I'm a 27 year old that likes to socialise, meet people, keep fit and keep active. Are there any boxing or muay thai gyms in Changshu?

What is daily life like there? Boring? Exciting? Plenty to see and do? Is it easy to meet people and are there many expats?

Thank you!!

G

Hi,

I am just back in China and in Changshu ...

The city itself is pleasant, not too big and not too small ... Has a mountain and a lake area, which is a bonus in China and allows you to get some fresh air and escape from the city without travelling a big distance ...

A place can get boring or not, all depends on your goals, your habits and expectations ...

There are several places where you can socialize with foreigners but also with chinese ...

- BK Bar near the 2nd Auchan (opened by an American named Phil)
- Casamia (a restaurant and a bar managed by a Hong Kongnese)

Might be other places but I am not aware of them ... Those two are already a good start ...

For boxing and muay thai, if you he'd to some gyms, you will be able to find such courses ... But, they will surely be in chinese ... Not technically a problem and will be a great way to meet some local people outside from your work circle or bar outings ...

If you have any other questions, just answer to this post or send me an email to matthieu.lecoq(@)gmail.com

...There's more than one Auchan?!

"Well now, we already have a marginally useless branch in Changshu, what else can we do? I KNOW, open up another one!"

"A" and "B" are the locations of Changshu's Auchan ...

There is nothing to do here and the locals are not friendly, So don't bother trying to make local friends. The only redeeming quality is that it is slightly less polluted than other parts of China (which isn't saying much)
Everything worth seeing here cam be done in less than a day.
I REALLY hope that you decided against moving here.
