My wife and I are planning to visit Kunming in summer for two months.
I'll use that time to study and improve my Chinese, so I'd like to stay somewhere close to the city center / Green Lake Park.
Two months are too long to stay at a hotel but too short to sign a proper rental contract.
Airbnb charges ridiculous fees, although prices are still cheap due to the low baseline. Chinese short rental websites mostly require you to own a Chinese bank account and ID card and I have no idea which service is trustworthy.
Then there's also the issue that I'm a foreigner so that I'll need a landlord who is willing to come with me to register at the local police station.
Sharing the flat with others isn't really an option either as the wife's expectations regarding hygienic standards differ from the customs of most locals.
So I'm wondering, what is the best way to rent an apartment for 2 months in Kunming?
