I'm about to embark on a new adventure and have accepted a position working in Beijing. Very exciting but its all happening a little too quickly. I was wondering how much approx I will need to budget for a 1/2 bedroom place in say the Sanlitun area? I've heard that's nice area to be in? Also, let me know if you are up for meeting up, iit would be nice to have some friendly advice on getting around things.
