Forums > Living in Kunming > Moving to Yunnan

I really appreciate the all the insight. We have sufficiently talked about and decided that NW Yunnan is where we want to be. I have a good job and my husband owns a home here but it’s just not the life that we want. Whatever house we buy in Yunnan will be our forever house so I’m comfortable taking a major pay cut. Has anyone had success securing a bank loan for a home without a Chinese co-signer?

I guess let me rephrase my question, I’m curious if the local population in Lijiang is enough to warrant the sustainability of English schools because there’s just no information available online about this topic or about the expat community in Lijiang. Also, with the pandemic effect on the ESL industry, it’s anyone’s guess what the market will look like in the foreseeable future. We’re pretty flexible about when exactly we’ll move but I’m just trying to figure out if Lijiang is going to be a sound choice because we’re definitely going to buy a house next year in Yunnan.

The housing market in Dali is actually even more expensive than the city I’m now, Shenyang, and we’ve been looking for a while. I’m well aware of the plans to make NW Yunnan an even greater tourist destination than what it is so I’m hoping to snag a decent secondhand home before that happens. I’m just a teacher surviving on an average teacher’s salary so 14K a square meter for a house is quite above what I’m looking to pay.

Hi! I’m an American looking to make the big move and settle down in Yunnan. I’m recently married, my husband is Chinese, and we’re looking to possibly move to Lijiang. We’ll be traveling there next year for our wedding and possibly purchase a house there but I’m curious if there are any teaching opportunities in the city. I don’t know anyone or have any connections in the province so feel free to share some advice. I’ve been living and teaching in NE China for the past four years, it’s time for a change. We’ve considered Kunming or Dali but the housing market is just too expensive. I plan on buying the house on my own so if any of you also have experience owning a home in Lijiang or other parts of Yunnan, I’d love to hear more about the process.
