Where do the foreigners hang out?

Postby instantkarma » Mon Feb 22, 2010 9:02 pm

Well hello

My name is Alan, make that Australian Alan and I'm new to Yangzhou though I've been in Nantong, China for 5 months. This time I'm teaching English at Web, in Nantong it was Business & Accountancy at the Voc. College

Where do the foreigners hang out? Which bars, coffee lounges, rugby union or other sports matches, meetings, political rallies (sorry forgot where I was for a moment).

I am married to a lovely Chinese woman but sometimes I need some native speakers. In Nantong it was at bars or rugby union matches. And there were bars and dives.

Not a huge drinker (too old for that) but being Australian I can down a few pejos (phonetic license) , not looking to pick-up chics (seriously married) and not looking for illegal highs - just want to talk to someone who really knows what Forest Gump or Bob Dylan or Oscar Wilde are all about.

Thanks (in advance, spur of the moment or retrospect or any combination of these).

Hi Alan,

I don't know where the foreigners hang out but I'm new to Yangzhou and I'm keen to meet other English speakers, as I don't speak a word of Chinese and I'm starting to feel it!

I've taken a job teaching English at Shane English School. Its my first teaching job, and its going pretty well so far. Previously, I was in Glasgow. I did a degree in English Lit at the University there.

Can I interest you in going for a drink with a complete stranger? It could be awkward, but like Momma always said, life is like a box of chocolates and you never know what you're gonna get.

i guess the Living Mall in the west end of the city is where you can find many foreigners hanging around. How is glasgow? I will go there for Ph.D study this year if the competition of scholarships goes well.

There is an excellent female singing band at the Old Brewery. It's worth going.

My friends and I go to a club in the 1912 area called Scarlett. Lots of beautiful Chinese women, music and dancing. Beer is 30 rmb and everyone is very friendly and usually a bit drunk. :lol:

Anyway back to the foregners hanging out......

I work for Yucai and we have 7 teachers here....
i know of a couple of guys that want to play sport, but there is a lack of in Yangzhou...

I have lived here for two years, and probably going to be a lot longer.

Yeah 1912 is the party spot.....there used to be alot more bars..but they weren't
as popular as the clubs so they're gone now....

there is a popular bar(or it used to be popular not sure now)
near the stadium called Jay Jay's which is more of a hang out, quieter and pool table...

starbucks you'll probably always catch a foreigner...thats in living mall...
also a new coffee shop has opened closer to down town now, Gloria Jeans,
which is not as good as starbucks and pretty much the same price but it is closer ..

we hang out there some days at lunch and have chinese lessons, or i have a japanese lesson etc..
its a good quiet place for having private lessons.

there is not many other places here that i know of really....
hope it helps...
