It seems that there is a huge amount of diverse thought on this subject.
1. How much, as a foreigner in China, would you expect to earn as a house cleaner - I'm sure that you'd feel that 60 yuan/hour quite reasonable - after all, you are, perhaps, accepting a relatively low Chinese-level income for teaching at the moment?
2. Accredited Chinese teachers do not earn 10 yuan/hour - I know many who are buying their own houses and driving expensive cars.
3. Perhaps, if you can only afford to pay $1/hour ... you don't deserve to have a house keeper/cleaner/cook/nanny/etc.
4. The Western media describes the the Chinese low wages as part of the Communist system ... I wonder.
4. It's often referred to as 'exploitation'. It reminds me of Palestinians building houses for Zionists in the occupied West Bank (My favourite subject).
I believe that if you require Australian documents to be notorized for an Australian visa, you'll need an Austalian lawyer (In China, this will be at the embassy or a consulate). If there are Chinese documents, they will require to be translated by an accredited translator.
After four years in Chengdu, came to Kunming - have never regretted it.
POLLUTION: Blue skies are unheard of, i.e., continuous smog. Large rivers downtown (and everywhere else) used to dispose of dead dogs from the pet market and, in the slow moving sections, bubbles with toxic gases.
I am considering a visit to Kunming soon.
This information confuses me. There is another hotel on the opposite side of the street (opposite the university's West Gate) that is also called (as far as I remember) Yunnan University Hotel.
It is much less expensive.
Hotel reviews are much needed.
