moving to Shenzhen from Australia


Hi there,

My husband, my 6 yr old and I are looking to relocate to Shenzhen in Nov. For the first three months, he will be doing internal training at his company's headquarters in Longgang - while I'll be commuting to Hong Kong, up to 3 days a week for a work.

Given this, we are keen to live as close as possible ( walking distance) to the Hong Kong ferry terminal and/or a local international school for our daughter to attend.

Is anyone able to suggest an apartment complex that is very near to the ferry and/or a school. Ideally we are looking for a two-bedroom apartment in a secured complex ( preferable with a pool and playground) in a mid-level price range.

Also, are apartments in Shenzhen furnished? And is it common for people to do a daily commute from Sheko to Longgang - and if so, what is the most popular way to do this...driver? metro? taxi?

And - any tips on local nanny services...

All advice greatly appreciated.
