Where to live while working in Baoan

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version


I'm so happy I found this forum, and I wish I knew about it last time I was visiting Shenzhen. I will be moving from Colorado with my Fiancee to Shenzhen in January 2018 to take a job which is located in Baoan. The address is off of Luxian 2nd Street in the Honghui Industry Zone. I would like to find an apartment that allows a reasonable commute to work, but still puts us in a place where we can go out on foot and find plenty of dining options and shoping. Also, it would be great if there were other expats living nearby but it isn't necessary. Could anyone give me a suggestion?


The closest subway stop to my work is Xingdong on line 5. It is a ten minute walk to the office from that stop. I had thought about OCT but it still looks like 45 minute transit time plus the walk. Maybe it is worth it? It looks fairly expensive to take a taxi every day from OCT (180-300 RMB per day depending on traffic).




Thanks so much,
