Like what my foreign friend Waz said, the first week of living in China is crazy but will pay off in the future. Here are some tips learned from the experienced ones.

Tip 1: Register with the local police to get a temporary residence permit. Otherwise big fines are waiting for you.

Tip 2: Get a local phone number. Here, everything runs on your mobile.

Tip 3: Get a bank account. Make sure they put your correct name on your bank account.

Tip 4: WeChat. WeChat is Chinese Facebook but it's so much more than that. It's your taxi app, bicycle rental app, bank account, method of payment online and offline, networking device and still more.

Tip 5: Link into the local social world. To make friends and also to start learning quickly about China.

Tip 6: Pleco. It's a translator, dictionary and Chinese teaching app. Point your phone camera at Chinese characters, it will translate them instantly. Author:Zhu Na Editor:Nicky
