Are you saying hello to Beijing for the first time, or perhaps saying zaijian as you move on to a new city?
Then the beijingkids Home & Relocation Guide 2011-2012 is for you!
Packed full of must-have information, the guide covers everything you need to know about settling in and moving out of the capital.
Our extensive features and how-to guides are divided into easy-to-read sections: Departures, Arrivals, Maps and our trusted Directories. Meanwhile, our Carry-On section deciphers Beijing’s major bus routes and tells you the best ways to get rid of your household items.
Within the Arrival and Departure sections you’ll find out how to: find the right accommodation for your family, relocate with pets, pay the bills, start a small business, pick a relocation company, deal with culture (and reverse culture) shock, maintain your Mandarin and much, much more.
The first 15,000 copies of this guide will be distributed free around the capital beginning tomorrow (July 11); look for them in the usual beijingkids distribution points around town, or write Jenny at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out where to score a free copy on your own (or to ask her to send you one by courier –you need only pay for the courier fee, usually 10-20 kuai within Beijing).
You can also download a free PDF copy here(right click and save link as..) or stay tuned to the Magazine section of this site where articles from the guide will be going live over the course of July and early August.
