Hi there! I have posted on the Zhoukou forum as well. I am going to be relocating to Zhoukou mid-Feb to teach English for one year. It seems that because Zhoukou is quite remote and rural, there is not much information online. I would like to speak to anyone living in Zhoukou or Henan, for that matter, about life there; facilities (gym, supermarket etc.), how I should prepare, basically anyone who has been through the experience of relocating to a completely new environment for advice. I am excited, don't get me wrong, but also apprehensive about being prepared to embrace the experience fully. As well, I will fly into PEK and prefer to catch train or bus from there to Zhoukou. I have googled this so many times and can't find many websites that aren't in Chinese, for which my computer is incompatible anyway, or that I can't access for this, that or the other reason. Can someone please help me out? Where do I catch the train from? Is the bus easier and cheaper? How much? Just one last thing, has anyone heard of Big Stone China? Anyone taught there? Thank you and look forward to reading your replies. Of course, any other advice you can pass my way would be much appreciated as well.
Does anyone have contacts to offer for train tickets in Zhengzhou? We need about 30 train tickets for the K151/K154 train, Zhengzhou -- Shanghai, on a Sunday at the end of this month. Without paying a bomb for commission! :(

Hi, i'm going to Zhengzhou in Jan 08 and don't know yet where to stay. i've planned to stay for a few days to see Luoyang, Kaifeng and Shaolin before heading off to Xi'an. Could anyone please recommend a reasonable hotel in Zhengzhou. Thanks.
Hi :) I will soon relocate to Zhengzhou and I would like to know the following: 1. are there internet cafes I can use at all times? 2. are there any shops/stores with western supplies (e.g. shampoo, soap, foodstuffs, etc) 3. any good western restaurants? thank you very much... i hope to hear from you (and maybe meet you in zhengzhou, if you live there). gigi
I expect to go here in a few months for work. I have been to the airport here on the way to Louyang, but never to the city of Zhengzhou. Any hotel experiences, restaurants or nightlife?
