Where have all the underground dance music nights gone?

I've just arrived in Shenzhen and am looking for house/techno/drum and bass (basically any non-commerical dance music) nights. It seems that as of about 2015 they either suddenly stopped happening or became impossible to track down on the internet. Please someone tell me it's just the latter! Read more »

How do I legally use the web, watch movies, rent an apartment, pay taxes, buy a car,house,business, or work in China?

I have been having a moral crisis because I recently realized that everything I want to do in China is illegal or immoral. I cheat on girls, live with my Chinese girlfriend, work illegally, can't use net cafes, watch pirated movies, don't pay income taxes, and want to buy a car, house, and a business, but I don't know how.

I want to have my own place, but all the hotels I have been to tell me that foreigners aren't allowed to stay there. Can foreigners rent their own apartments by themselves? Can foreigners legally live with Chinese people?

I tried to use net bars in Shenzhen, but some of them wanted a Chinese ID card even though I am a foreigner.

I want to watch legitimate movies, but every movie here is counterfeit. Where can I buy legal DVD's and products? Read more »
