I used Santa Fe Relocations from Guangzhou when I moved from Germany to Kunming. To me they looked quite professional. They also did not rely on local helpers, all staff were from the company in Guangzhou. Except for a minor damage due to unprofessional packing in Germany I had no damages on the goods. They have an international Network with subsidiaries in all Asian countries. Good Luck!
Not advisable! One of my friends tried the same way and got charged with involvement in visa fraud. The result was that they were expelled from the country with a 5 year "no entry" restriction. Lucky enough no further charges were pressed. The Visa Office does know this practice and the agencies that are involved.
Making a U-Turn in a roundabout is right out ignorance. It is not lack of thought, it is the selfishness of the chinese social structure that is reflected in the traffic behavior. Any participation in the traffic, regardless if using a bicycle, a scooter, taxi or own car always means facing the danger of an accident. Here more than any other place I lived. They just don't give a shit!
Being a regular on CZ and MU and other local airlines (between 20-30000 miles annually) I have to say I had a lot of bad experiences with all of them. Especially the ground staff of China Southern at Knuming Airport is certainly the most incompetent bunch of people I ever met! China Eastern beat them by far -on the ground! In the air China Southern has a much better service. Cancellation of Flights also happend with China Southern. They will check you in knowing that you will not catch your connecting flight. " No problem we get you a Hotel and you fly tomorrow!" Flight delays are for a good portion not caused by the airline but by the completely inefficient air traffic control. And it seems that when only limited corridors are available the smaller airlines move to the bottom of the chain. My experience last week with Kunming airline was instead of arriving in Kunming at 8pm we arrived at 3:15am. Adding up to the already hugh frustration was that Kunming Airport needed 45 minutes to bring the baggage on the belt. All in all, driving from Nanning by car does not take any longer. Flying in China is no fun, never! Show me a reasonable alternative and I will happily take it.
I have a residence visa and my Business requires that I am travelling in and out of China on a regular base, at least one to two times per month. No problem. I think you have received some false information.
Went to the open-mic and jam last Monday for the first time and had a great night. It was fun to hook up with other musicians, western and Chinese. But.... if you want to play, bring your own instrument. At least the guitars they have are grotty!
