MEET THE LOCALS

By Annie Clover

Which

spots do

you usually

visit?

I like to visit Gatto Matto and

Wade’s. As for local cuisine,

Grandma’s ( 外 婆 家 ) is the

best. I like to go to bars

more than clubs; I go out to

Midtown Brewery, College and

Ellen’s. Which one depends

mostly on my mood. When

I want to enjoy Hangzhou’s

beauty, I go to West Lake or

Xixi Wetland Park mostly. I am

really happy that this city has

such exciting, natural places.

What are

your plans for

the holiday?

For the upcoming holiday I

am going to stay in Hangzhou.

During the National Holiday

Hangzhou will be too

crowded, so I will probably

just enjoy a rest at home or

visit some small parks nearby.

Which

places do

you like

best in

Hangzhou?

I think some of the best

restaurants in Hangzhou

are Blue Frog (all of their

branches) and Wade’s

Wensan. My favourite place to

hang out is 9 Club: the drinks

and food are cheap and

every day they have different

parties, like Jam night, Latino

dance nights, ladies' night,

and pool competitions.

Do you have

plans for the

National

Holiday?

I don’t really have any plans

for the National holiday. One

thing is for sure is that I will

be avoiding crowded places.

For Halloween, like most

people, I will be working.

Where have

you been

eating

recently?

I am mostly trying to eat

at home because I’ve been

trying to eat healthily. If

I go out to eat, I like to

go to Mojar for Mexican

food. I’ve only been here

for three weeks. I’ve not

really gone out much yet,

but I did go to the West

Lake. It was relaxing.

What plans

do you have

for October?

I don’t have any plans for

the National Holiday, but

Halloween is my secondfavourite

holiday, second

only to my birthday. So I’ll

be dressing up and doing

something fun. Don’t know

yet where I’ll go to celebrate.

ENJOY OKTOBERFEST

AT INTERCONTINENTAL

HANGZHOU

By Toby Clarke

It’s that time of year again – time for Oktoberfest! Although traditionally celebrated in the month of September in its mother

country, the German Beer festival is coming to Hangzhou this month to bring the people of Hangzhou some delicious homebrew

beer and mouth-watering Bavarian food, courtesy of the InterContinental Hangzhou’s German Restaurant, Wochinger.

The price tag for the event is 398 RMB,

which includes a complete night of fun,

food and drink. To begin, guests can

enjoy a range of salads, sushi and sashimi,

soups, cold cuts and pretzels. For the

main course, guests can eat all kinds

of meat including pork knuckle on the

bone, whole roast lamb and sausages to

scallops, mussels and king crab legs. If all

that wasn’t enough, the dessert selection

is equally appetizing: apple strudel, black

forest cake, beer toast, cheesecake and

ice-cream to name but a few choices.

Oktoberfest began on October

12th, 1810 when King Ludwig

I married Princess Therese of

Saxe-Hildburghausen. People in

Munich celebrated the marriage in fields

leading to the city gates. Over the years,

carnivals, amusement rides, food booths,

beer tents and parades were all added

to the celebrations. Today, Oktoberfest

celebrations have spread to all corners

of the world, as the festival becomes

synonymous with German culture.

Now you can experience all this right

on your very doorstep. Come along to

Wochinger to enjoy some German beer

made on site, experience a banquet of

German, Bavarian and international cuisine

and enjoy some live, Oktoberfest-style

performances to get you in the mood!

Of course, it wouldn’t be Oktoberfest

without large amounts of great beer, and

Wochinger delivers. Free-flow drinking of

either their stout or wheat beer will have

you arm-in-arm, singing German songs

with your pals before the night is up. Come

along to Wochinger, bring your friends, and

enjoy some good times German-style!

REDSTAR will be giving away tickets to

this event on our WeChat. Make sure you

follow us so you can have the chance

to win a free ticket (scan the QR code

on the front cover of this magazine).

Burger

A spin on a classic, the new Beef Burger is topped with Goose Liver Terrine (98 RMB)

and features a deliciously sweet sauce. All burgers come with a side of Socia10's

famed fries, so you will be well and truly satisfied at the end of this dish.

Steak

Ribs

Pizza

For the all-out meat lovers, you can't

go wrong with a slab of their Angus

Beef Steak Oyster Blade (200g, 98RMB).

Succulent and juicy, and cooked just the

way you like it, it's taken from Australia

directly to your plate. On Fridays, get a free

beer with any of Socia10's delicious steaks.

Socia10's Roasted Beef Ribs are to die for -

slow cooked, the succulent meat just falls

off the bone in your mouth. Grab a portion

and share it with a friend (800g, 178RMB),

or opt for their larger portion and share it

with a group of your besties! (1.6kgprice/

338RMB). Includes vegetables and fries.

In addition to all the great new food, Socia10 has also redesigned its floor plan so their

patrons can enjoy entertainment such as Latin Night on Wednesdays where you can

go to learn or show off your Latin dance skills, JAM Night where local or visiting talents

can showcase their passion for music. On Saturdays you can expect a live band or DJ.

What's new about Socia10's Margarita

Pizza? Everything! The restaurant has

taken a move towards creating greattasting,

authentic pizza, with the

ingredients imported from Italy (except

the water), and now the chefs at Socia10

have been trained to make the pizzas by

Italian Chef Edis Sacchi. Chef Edis has been

making pizza for over 20 years and also

holds the Guinness World Record holder

from 2017 for making 10,000 pizzas

and the Attestato Di Frequenza al Cross

Formation Pizza Gourmet Award in Italy.

ELEMENT

FRESH

新 元 素 餐 厅

By Kyla Robertson

With three convenient locations in Hangzhou,

Element Fresh is a great place to enjoy a

wide-variety of internationally-inspired

nutritious cuisine. With hearty salads,

fresh juices, smoothies, pasta, sandwiches

and a selection of Asian dishes, Element

Fresh has reasonably priced, healthy food

options for even the pickiest eaters.

This popular restaurant chain first opened

in Shanghai in 2002 and today they have

locations all across China. The three in

Hangzhou are in easy-to-access mall

locations at MixC ( 万 象 城 ), Paradise Walk ( 龙

湖 天 街 ) and Kerry Centre ( 嘉 里 中 心 ).

The REDSTAR team had the pleasure of dining

at the Kerry Centre location. For our mains, we

chose to share one of their BBQ plates as well

as the Crayfish Salad. The BBQ plate had a nice

selection of veggies to go along with the meat

and was grilled to perfection. The salad was a nice

addition to the BBQ dish and was just as fresh as

advertised. Personally, I was thrilled to order an

Iced Soy Latte along with the meal (as someone

who limits my dairy intake, I was happy to have this

coffee option). We ended our meal with a slice of

scrumptious Carrot Cake for dessert. This location

also has a large outdoor patio which will be nice

to use on the approaching cooler Autumn days.

A great perk about dining at Element Fresh

is their WeChat account and points card. On

their WeChat you can set the language of your

membership account to English and easily track

your reward points. Users can also order delivery

through the official Element Fresh WeChat

Account (in English as well). In Hangzhou, Element

Fresh delivers within up to 5 kilometres of their

stores, and you can also order Element Fresh

delivery through other food delivery apps.

choices, weekday lunch specials from 12:00 to

14:00 and a kid’s menu for their littlest customers.

Although their staples stay the same, they

often offer seasonal specials and will change

their menu at the end of this October. While

their menu might change, their concept of

providing fresh, healthy meals is their mainstay

and a great reason to keep coming back.

THE

玖 树

西 厨 餐 厅

By Toby Clarke

Photos by Brine

The Tree prides itself in its diverse

range of international food, which

spans a range of countries and tastes.

The restaurant's proprietor, Jack,

has worked in some of Hangzhou’s finest

eating establishments and in that time has

been able to understand customer needs,

whether those customers be local or foreign.

His experience has allowed him to create

a menu that encompasses all tastes, diets

and eating habits. As he explains, working

in the food industry for this length of time

has given him what he calls “a sensitivity

for international food,” something you can

see as you glance through the menu.

The Tree’s soup selection is just the ticket

for the fast-approaching cooler months of

autumn: choose between the creamy Black

Truffle Mushroom Soup, the sweet Pumpkin

Soup and the hearty Goulash Beef Broth.

For those looking for something lighter to

start with, the Salmon and Avocado Tartar

topped with caviar really hits the spot.

Main courses are very much a fusion

of various countries’ foods, so you can

experience some of the best that each

country has to offer. From their tapas

selection, the Yunnan Mix Mushrooms

included a mushroom mix topped with

spicy chilli flakes, the Madrid Meatballs

were served in a delicious, thick tomato

sauce, and the New Zealand Green Mussels

are sure to make any seafood lover smile.

These tapas-style dishes are all

great for sharing with groups

of up to four people

and can also act as a

great snack for those

who are getting into a night of drinking.

Many of the Italian ‘classics’, including pizza,

spaghetti Bolognese and seafood pasta are

available, but what the restaurant really

prides itself on is its meat selection. With

a selection including Rib Eye, Tenderloin,

Oyster Blade and massive Tomahawk

steaks, there is something for every meat

lover. We were privileged to try to the Beef

Bourguignon, extremely tender pieces of

meat, served precut, great for sharing with

a friend over a couple of glasses of red wine.

As with all new restaurants, the team at The

Tree are constantly tinkering with the

menu so that it suits customer

tastes and utilises seasonal

meats and vegetables.

Having said this, what

they currently have is

certainly a strong start.

The selection here is

not huge and confusing

like that which you may

see in some western-style

restaurants; the idea is to do

less, but do it better, and I think

they are executing this idea very well.

VIETNAM’S

FAVOURITE

NOODLE SOUP:

Phở

IN HANGZHOU

By Kim Bui

Photos by Brine

Dai Weiqiang, from Wuxi, a city of

eastern China, has opened a quickservice

Vietnamese restaurant

in Hangzhou. The restaurant,

called Saigon Funyo, was inspired by

how the iconic noodle soup is made and

enjoyed in its place of origin, Vietnam.

Mr Dai explained that phở has become

a successful business model because of

young Chinese people who pay more

attention to their diet - phở is delicious,

fresh and healthy. Phở consists of a

fragrant broth poured over fresh rice

noodles, topped with a handful of herbs,

green onions, and slices of tender meat.

The ratio between beef and noodles

is perfect. The accompaniment is lime,

chilli pepper, lettuce and beansprouts.

Served simply, with nothing added.

At Saigon Funyo you can

try, among many others

dishes, phở bò (beef noodles), phở

gà (chicken noodles), chả giò (fried spring

rolls), gỏi cuốn (summer spring rolls) and

chè ba màu (coloured sweet soup dessert).

For the authentic Vietnamese Experience,

Phin Filter Coffee can be ordered here.

In order to keep the original taste of phở,

the owner has sent some chefs to Vietnam

to take part in cooking classes and join

training courses conducted by Vietnamese

chefs. Moreover, some ingredients

like mint, noodles, Thai basil and lime

are ordered from Guangxi province of

China, where the flavour is the same as

those ingredients found in Vietnam.

I still remember the familiar feeling of being

Feel the

heat when passion

flows around beloved dishes

that shape a culture’s identity. For

Vietnamese people, phở is more than

just second nature, it is a way of life. It is

considered Vietnam’s national dish, and

is beloved through the country and

the world, including in China,

where it is gaining more

popularity.

in Vietnam when I first

visited the restaurant:

blue window frames, palmleaf

hats converted into sparkling yellow

lamps; the staff of the restaurant wears

traditional Áo dài (Vietnamese dress)

and conical hats. These are reminiscent

of the beauty of Vietnamese women

through many generations. The large

framed photos on the walls are quite

impressive, showing daily life in Vietnamese

villages: kids riding buffalos in the fields,

children gathered after school, the

exquisitely tanned hands of farmers - all

are the quintessential soul of Vietnam.

ARE YOU READY FOR

THE SCARE?

By

Courtney

Interacting with our readers is one of our favourite things to do. As Halloween is approaching,

we found a few of our readers to ask them about the movies that scare them the most.

TINO

Zimbabwe

Supply Chain Manager

If I had to

choose, my top

five horror movies

would be Saw, The

Conjuring, It, The Exorcist and Poltergeist.

They are creepy and scary, but there is

a certain delight you get from watching

Halloween folklore come to life in the

modern world. You get jump scares,

twists and turns, creepy children, and

some gore to bring it all together. Who

doesn’t love a good horror movie!

TUGULDUR

Mongolia

Dancer

I would like to

recommend Tale

of Tales which is

about street circus

family. A lot happens in this movie and

I do not remember the exact details, all

I remember is when I was graduating

High School, I watched it and I cried

a lot. It was one of the scariest horror

movies I had ever seen. If you want a

spooky Halloween give this a try.

MADINA

Kazakhstan

Student

Wow, horror

movies - what

could be more

exciting! Here is a

relatively old horror movie that will tide

you over until Halloween arrives: Audition.

Beware, this is not for the weak-hearted,

and don't be fooled by its satiric comedic

set-up. When the ‘audition’ is through, you

may want to throw up, or praise the filmmakers

for being so bold. It’s a classic; the

best science-fiction horror movie ever!

LYNN

South Africa

Founder of Witty Gadgets

I love horror

movies and I would

recommend The

Conjuring collection.

They are some of the most realistic horror

movies I’ve watched and I wouldn’t

mind re-watching them. I would also

recommend Drag Me Back to Hell. This one

has a sad ending which is what makes it

worth watching. Unlike most horror movies

where the victim survives or the possessed

person has a successful exorcism, none

of the obvious horror movie clichés

are in this movie. My ultimate horror

movie recommendation is The Exorcism

of Emily Rose. I have watched this a

hundred times and I still cannot fathom

the ending. Definitely worth a watch.

JOURNEY

TO THE WEST

By Jerry Shen

Having spent most of my childhood in

Canada, my fondest memories involve

watching Saturday morning cartoons

like Dragon Ball Z or Pokemon. When

I ask my Chinese colleagues about the

shows they watched in their childhood,

they mention a strangely familiar TV

series – Journey to the West.

Journey to the West ( 西 游 记 , xī yóu

jì) is arguably the most popular

Chinese novel to date. Written in the

sixteenth century by Ming Dynasty

novelist and poet Wu Cheng En ( 吴 承 恩 ), it

is considered one of the Four Great Classical

Novels of Chinese literature. Today, Journey

to the West has infiltrated global media

through its foray into TV shows, movies,

comic books and even video games. It’s

likeable characters and interesting storyline

make it a great watch for both adults and

children. To truly taste a piece of Chinese

culture, mythology, folk religion, and the

supernatural, Journey to the West is a must

watch/read!

The story begins with the introduction

of Sun Wukong ( 孙 悟 空 ), a monkey born

from a stone egg. He is a rambunctious

but powerful monkey who quickly learns

martial arts, polymorphic transformation

and the secrets of immortality. Though

he attained all this power, his hubris to

challenge the almighty Buddha resulted in

him being sealed under a mountain for five

hundred years.

The second part of the novel introduces the

nominal main character Tang Sanzang( 唐 三

藏 ).Tang Sanzang is a monk who had been

tasked by Buddha to journey to India and

bring back Buddhist scriptures or “sutras”

to China. Along this journey, he finds and

releases Sun Wukong who, along with other

main characters Zhu Bajie ( 猪 八 戒 ) and Sha

Wujing ( 沙 悟 净 ), accompany and protect

Tang Sanzang.

The third and longest part of the novel

describes the trials and tribulations

faced by Tang Sanzang and his team

as they make their journey to the West.

Not only are they confronted with the

dangers of evil spirits and demons, they

are also challenged as a team through

their differences in perspectives, abilities,

virtues and vices.

NOTABLE INFLUENCES IN MEDIA:

Sun Wukong or The Monkey King: Born

on Flower Fruit Mountain from a stone

egg, the archetypal hero Sun Wukong is

the king of monkeys. He quickly became

one of the most powerful beings but his

rebellious feuds with the other immortals in

Heaven led to his entrapment by Buddha.

Suppressed under a mountain, he was

later released from his imprisonment

with the promise he aids Tang Sanzang

in his quest to India. Sun Wukong is a

fearless and brave individual who can be

impulsive and childish at times. His speed,

quick-wittedness, abilities in combat, and

polymorphic transformations undoubtedly

makes him the strongest member of the

pilgrimage.

Zhu Bajie or Pigsy: Once the respected

commander of 80,000 Heavenly Naval

Soldiers, Zhu Bajie was banished from

heaven because of a drunken attempt to

seduce the Moon Goddess. Reborn on

Earth as half-man half-pig, Zhu Bajie is the

archetypal village idiot who is driven by

his love for food and women. His laziness

often slows the expedition down while his

lustful and edacious nature is preyed upon

by many demons. Still, Zhu Bajie is not

without merit. Zhu Bajie is a soft-hearted

individual who is frequently seen pleading

with Sun Wukong to spare the lives of their

enemies. He is respectful to his teammates

and a dose of optimism and humor in their

adventure to the West.

Tang Sanzang or Tripitaka: The archetypal

innocent, Tang Sanzang renounced his

family at a young age to become a monk.

Concerned that China was plagued with

greed and sin, Buddha sends Tang Sanzang

on a pilgrimage to India to bring back

Buddhist “good will” sutras to China. Tang

Sanzang is portrayed as a kind-hearted,

generous, but naïve character who stops

at nothing to help anyone including the

demons that try to eat him. It is because

of this generosity and naivety that often

leads to clashes with Sun Wukong. Tang

Sanzang is based off the real 6th century

Tang Dynasty monk Xuanzang ( 玄 奘 ),

who travelled to sacred Buddhist sites

in Pakistan, India and Bangladesh for

the purpose of bringing more complete

Buddhist teachings back to China.

Sha Wujing or Sandy: Sha Wujing was

previously a general in Heaven and is the

least well-known and least developed

disciple in the Journey to the West. Banished

from Heaven for breaking an important

vase, he was changed into a demon and

placed in a river. He stayed there awaiting

Tang Sanzang to accompany him on the

journey to atone for his ‘sin’. Sha Wujing

is adept in the water but is the weakest

disciple in the Journey to the West. His

main role is to be a nanny. He carries the

luggage for the team and occasionally serves

as a mediator between Sun Wukong and

Zhu Bajie. Not known for his personality

or abilities, Sha Wujing is a dedicated

and loyal protector of Tang Sanzang.

• Dragon Ball franchise: Son Goku

and the Dragon Ball franchise

is based off Sun Wukong

and Journey to the West. The

supporting characters Oolong

and Yamcha are based off Zhu

Bajie and Sha Wujing, respectively.

• Pokemon franchise: Infernape

is a Fire pokemon based off

Sun Wukong. Tepig, Pignite and

Emboar are also Fire Pokemon

based off Zhu Bajie.

• Dota franchise: The Monkey King

is a playable hero based off Sun

Wukong

• League of Legends franchise:

Wukong, a champion in League

of Legends is also based off Sun

Wukong

• Digimon franchise: Gokuumon,

Sanzomon, Cho-Hakkaimon

and Shawujinmon are Digimon

modelled after Sun Wukong, Tang

Sanzang, Zhu Bajie and Sha Wujin,

respectively.

• Journey to the West: Journey to

the West (2013) and Journey to

the West: The Demons Strike Back

(2017) are movies based off the

Journey to the West novel.

There are many English translations

of Journey to the West. The earlier

and most well-known translation is

the 1942 abridged version by Arthur

Waley titled “Monkey: A Folk-Tale of

China”. More recently, a complete

translation titled “The Journey to the

West” was written by Anthony C.

Yu which includes the poems and

soliloquys presented in the story.

Regardless of which you may choose

to read, be ready for an adventure

packed full of emotions, humour,

and Chinese culture, as you journey

into the Journey to the West!

PLACES YOU CAN

TRY FOR THE

PERFECT DATE

By Annie Clover

If you want to make a big impression on that special person, you should plan a unique. REDSTAR is going to help you with

this list of 10 places to go for the perfect date. You will never forget your time together, and these places will give you an

unforgettable experience. Stay away from Starbucks and the movie theatre and try out some of these great places!

SEAFOOD BUFFET

WEST LAKE BOATING

It’s a classy place, located in the heart of Hangzhou. Close to sunset the

whole sky turns an orange/pinkish colour and the vibes will change to

something a little more romantic. As the breeze gusts over you and the

boat, you may find yourself turning into Jack and Rose. This date will take

you a few hours, including boating and walking on the islands of West Lake.

After a long walk together, it’s never a bad idea to

find a seafood buffet where you can eat until you

two can’t breathe or even move. This place has

food for every taste: crabs, dumplings, vegetables,

French fries, pizza, beer, wine and fruits.

458 Shantang Lu, Crystal City Shopping Centre 5F

THE LIBRARY

You probably think this is quite a strange

place to go on a date, right? Well, not in this

library. A futuristic design and thousands of

books will really impress him/ her. Just make

sure they know you are not inviting them

to read books quietly together for hours.

The library has a few different zones: one for

reading, another for hand crafts and also one

in which to have a cup of tea. I recommend

that you choose the last option.

TEA

As tea in China is one of the biggest

traditions, you should definitely bring that

special someone to a private tea room. A

well-designed, quiet place, water mists

around each tea capsule. A very relaxing

experience.

Cosy but sweet. You will need to

prepare a blanket and some snacks.

Find the best spot on the green hill

near the stadium. If you forgot to

prepare well in advance, don’t worry as

all the things you need can be bought

at the Walmart or McDonalds.

134 Shuguang Lu 曙 光 路 134 号

FUXING BRIDGE

A nice walk in the evening is always

a good idea. Breathe some fresh air,

walk and think of the day just gone,

and maybe even talk about a few more

secret topics as you walk along the

road by Fuxing Bridge.

Fuxing Bride (Yinghua Avenue in

Binjiang) 复 兴 大 桥 ( 滨 江 樱 花 大 道 )

MASSAGE

One more very relaxing thing to do is, of

course, a massage. In Hangzhou you can

find plenty of spas and massage shops.

All you need to do is type “SPA” on your

phone map and you will see many options

around you.

10

GRAND CANAL ( 大 运 河 )

The Grand Canal turns into a magical place

after sunset. Grab a thermos of tea and

a little barbecued food and enjoy some

romance. A walk by the river under the starry

night’s sky in the beautiful park bursting

with colourful lights. Alternatively, you can

sit at the any of the ports along the canal

and watch the boats come and go.

Qingsha Park 青 莎 公 园

PLAYGROUND

No matter how old we are, we still feel like

we are kids. So, one of the greatest options

I can recommend is a playground to jump

and laugh in. Feel free, happy and youthful

again. These playgrounds can be found in

most shopping malls.

THE HAUNTED

HOUSES OF

HANGZHOU

By Minju Kim

Autumn is here, and that

means Halloween! For many people,

celebrating this spooky season means

checking out haunted attractions in the days

and weeks leading up to it. In Hangzhou, most of

the popular haunted houses and escape rooms

are located in the West Lake area. Here are

some Haunted Houses in Hangzhou

for you to check out:

IT’S YOUNG ESCAPE ROOM

异 次 元 密 室 ( 上 城 店 )

Set during the Min( 民 ) Dynasty, the local famous

medicine maker Lin prepared to marry a singer from

Suzhou called ShenXiuXiu. However, his family was

against the marriage from the beginning, and forced

ShenXiuXiu to marry his cousin, who had already

passed away. Later ShenXiuXiu gets locked in an

old house, and his bride-to-be waits her chance for

revenge…with blood.

This escape room has a very affordable price compared

to other escape rooms in Hangzhou. Despite the low

pricing, the program itself is very well-made. There is

dark lighting with quality sound effects and excellent

performances from real actors. As it is an escape room,

tasks are given to the players in Chinese. Multiple

themes are available, but if you want to experience the

most horror, choose No.17 House Lin described above.

Loved the experience in general and would definitely

visit again!

CHANGTENG GHOST SCHOOL

长 藤 鬼 校

This haunted house does not require any Chinese from

the player, as the walk does not involve any tasks or

riddles in Chinese. Real actors are involved to scare

the players, but there is no physical interaction. An

optional Changteng Card ( 长 藤 令 ) with extra payment

is provided for players that do not want an extra

frightening experience, such as getting locked alone

in the little dark room and getting separated with your

mate.

Daishi Hospital is a famous private

hospital, and Dr.Dai is a well-known

doctor as well. However, there is

a rumour that spiritual events are

taking place in this hospital. You are

the adventurer and you are about to

find out the truth.

Players are given tasks that require

medium Chinese skill, so find a local

friend or someone with a good

Chinese ability to help you. Everyone

is given a role to play, which helps

every player to be a part of the plot

and enjoy the program.

Real actors will appear any time to

add the extra tension. Music and

屋 有 岛 深 度 体 验 密 室 ( 湖 滨 店 )

In Shanghai in the 80s, not far from

the busy streets, there was an old

house in an alley that no one noticed

or cared for. A rumour says that after

a murder case took place in this

seemingly normal house, the people

who lived there all faced a strange

death. There is only one way to find

out the truth, and in front of you is

only a box of ancient Chinese blusher

( 胭 脂 ).

This place is one of the most famous

haunted houses in Hangzhou, as it

won first place in national awards;

famous Chinese actress Angela Baby

has also recommended this place.

Along with the fame, the ticket

is, expectedly, pricier than other

haunted houses. This haunted house

also requires Chinese skills from the

players. The plot and setting are

very sophisticated, as well as the real

actors’ performances.

BEST MUSEUM

PIECES IN

HANGZHOU

By Edgar Barreto

There are over 50 museums in the Hangzhou metropolitan area. Housed within them are countless

artefacts telling the story of the city, those who raised it, and those who call it home. Among these

treasures, several works of Chinese genius stand out. Here is the story of five such splendid pieces.

2. ROYAL ROBES

1. DANNY GARDEN MAP

The Danny Garden Map is the dearest relic

of the West Lake Museum. It was made by

royal artisans in the 18th century for the

personal use of the Qing Qianlong Emperor.

The monarch would rely on this map during

his stays in paradisiac West Lake. When

fully unrolled it measures 18 meters in

length and it contains exquisite etchings

in vivid acrylics. The luxurious map was a

necessity during royal tours, pilgrimages,

and personal excursions. All of the Qing

era West Lake area was depicted in the

scroll for the exclusive use of the Son of

Heaven. His majesty would have identified

not only the Lake but also its surrounding

areas including Longjing Village and

Lingyin Temple. The Danny Garden Scroll

is a window into a cultural and scenic area

that has forged the very soul of China.

If you ever wondered what the

sumptuous clothes in the famous

imperial Ming and Qing paintings

looked like in real life, this is your

chance to find out. Housed in the

Museum of Silk, the actual robes

worn by several Chinese Emperors

can be visited and seen. These royal

vestments were fashionable in court

from around the overthrow of the

Yuan Dynasty in the 13th century.

Displayed are actual relics dating

from the 17th to the 20th centuries.

Time has not ruined these imperial

robes, as they lay in a state of pristine

preservation. If you thought the

Versailles nobility was unsurpassed

in refinement then come and see

the royal attires used by the kings

of China—the Cradle of Silk.

3. ORIGAMI

The world’s largest origami paper

exhibition? Perhaps, but unlike many paper

art exhibits, the “Splendid Languages

of Paper” exhibition is interactive.

Participants can make their own bird

origamis following a set of instructions and

afterwards they can add them to the tens

of thousands made by other visitors. The

exhibit therefore becomes very curious: it

transforms into a living and growing being

that blends itself with the very organic

material it feeds on—paper. Paper was

invented in China in the 3rd century BC, it

struck history with unprecedented progress

across every field. Come view the “Splendid

Languages of Paper” at the Zhejiang

Art Museum. Come and learn about

contemporary Chinese paper art culture.

4. OIL-PAINTED UMBRELLAS

A favourite artefact of the umbrella

museum could be any of its oil-painted

umbrellas. This tradition dates to the

Han dynasty 2200 years ago. With the

invention of paper by Cai Lun, umbrellas

became more affordable for the common

man. Then, in the Wei and Jin dynasties,

according to Ning Ke of the Hangzhou

Fan Museum, people brushed oil on their

paper parasols as a way “to enhance

water repellency”. An art form was born

out of this practical solution as umbrellas

became painting canvases. However,

as a Mecca of smooth living, Hangzhou

contributed its own style to the new art

form. The umbrellas became windows

into its legendary lifestyle of comfort

and leisure. In the simple materials of

paper, bamboo strips, and oil, cleverness,

practicality, and refinement evolved. These

artefacts were both tools and canvasses

in one, as that they serve us with morsels

of a golden era that still captivates us

today. Come to the Umbrella Museum

and give life to your own oil umbrella

creation in one of its eminent workshops.

5. HANGZHOU SILK PARASOL

The legendary Hangzhou silk parasol

was brought to life in Hangzhou only

one hundred years ago. Its weaving

technique was first mastered by

Du Jinsheng, a famous Hangzhou

industrialist. Our eminent hero

travelled to Japan to rediscover and

reclaim traditional Chinese umbrella

making technologies and silk weaving

techniques. His aim was to embrace

these innovations and unite them with

Hangzhou’s captivating umbrella and

silk making culture: “There is heaven

above and Hangzhou below.” This is why

the Hangzhou silk umbrella became

unique among artefacts. Its style

became known for showcasing the ten

poetic scenic spots of West Lake. The

Hangzhou Silk Umbrella is a glimmer of

Hangzhou’s cultural accomplishments. It

pushed the symbiosis of utility and art—

culture and nature—into a new frontier.

IS THERE ANYTHING FINER

THAN NAMING YOUR SONG

AFTER CHINA?

To celebrate the national holiday in China, we look at 4 of the most popular western

songs which feature China in the song title. Here is what REDSTAR found!

By Andrew Wright

CHINA GROVE

– The Doobie Brothers (1973)

The oldest song on this list is the 1973 smash

hit, China Grove. The song is based on a real

town in Texas. Lead vocalist Tom Johnston

thought he had created a fictional town

called "China Grove" near San Antonio, Texas.

He later explained that the band had been

on tour passing through the town of China

Grove on the way to San Antonio, Texas,

and he had seen a road sign with the name,

but somehow had forgotten about it.

LIKE CHINA

– Phil Collins (1982)

Former Genesis drummer Phil Collins

released “Like China” back in 1982, taken

from his second solo album, Hello, I Must

Be Going! The song's title is a traditional

English expression meaning "gently and

with great care". The song's lyrics portray an

infatuated teenager attempting to convince

a girl to date him despite their different social

backgrounds—as emphasized by his reference

to being from "the other side of town".

CHINA GIRL

– David Bowie (1983)

PRINCESS OF CHINA

– Coldplay ft Rihanna (2012)

Princess of China is taken from

Coldplay's fifth studio album, Mylo

Xyloto. The band were helped by

music legend Brian Eno. The song

takes influence from electronic rock,

electropop and R&B. The song is a

ballad about loss, regret and break-ups

“Once upon a time, we fell apart. You're

holding in your hands the two halves

of my heart". The song received mixed

reactions, with many not convinced

with Coldplay’s newer experimental

sound. The song maintained an

average position within the charts.

First up is the 1983 release of China Girl,

a song originally written by Iggy Pop, but

gained more exposure upon release by

David Bowie. Guitar legend Nile Rodgers,

the producer of the song, imagined his own

meaning of the song: "I figured China Girl

was about doing drugs ... because China is

China White, which is heroin, girl is cocaine. I

thought it was a song about speed balling”.

CYCLING OFF

THE BEATEN

TRACK - PART

2: HUZHOU

It’s

By Ellie Bouttell

This month’s distance cycle was to the nearby city of

Huzhou, about 100 kilometres north of Hangzhou and

extending out from the south side of the enormous Taihu

lake. My usual strategy of stabbing randomly at a map

gave me the destination of Qiaoxi ( 乔 溪 ), a tiny village

in the hills near Moganshan, but I doubted that the 20

or so buildings I could see via satellite there included a

hotel that would house an exhausted foreigner and her

unwieldy bicycle, so I opted for the safer Huzhou instead.

a historic city, with a classic old water

town that’s rumoured to be prettier

and more authentic than the average,

and has particular fame for producing

traditional Chinese ink brushes. Taihu Lake,

from which Huzhou takes its name (“lake

city”), is also an impressive presence, with

a circumference of almost 400 kilometres

and 50 islands, 18 of which are inhabited.

Setting out from Binjiang around 9:00 in

the morning, I hadn’t accounted for how

long it would take me to get through the

city. My route took me through the loud,

industrial and stressful roads of Linping

for 20 kilometres before I finally hit quieter

intercity tarmac. Hot but mercifully flat

highways slowly unfolded into rural

scenes until I was finally surrounded by

30 redstarhangzhou.com


广 告 • 文 化 // CULTURE /

green farmland and a cloudless blue sky,

accompanied by only the odd e-bike rider.

This was easily the most beautiful part of

the ride: the space between China’s giant,

homogenous cities; these tiny, sleepy,

almost suspiciously immaculate villages.

Brilliant green leaves framed watery

fields which I guessed were growing rice,

though I couldn’t find anyone to ask.

Perhaps everyone was inside, hiding from

the afternoon sun, leaving the fields to

be tended by their jealous white cranes.

Well-kept party buildings were present

in every village I passed through.

Childlike Chinese characters daubed on

whitewashed walls instructed people to

“live low carbon,” “reject alcoholism” and

“share the Chinese dream.” I wondered

when they had been painted and who

had decided which words of wisdom

most deserved this humble platform.

Widening roads signalled that I was

drawing close to Huzhou. More cars joined

me on the baking hot road, saluting

my aching legs with well-meaning but

irritatingly constant horns and speeding

past at uncomfortable proximity. The last 20

kilometres were a struggle - I was painfully

aware that I was sweating off sunscreen

faster than I could put it on, and it was little

but the thought of a cold shower and soft

bed waiting for me that kept me going.

Travel app Qunar had suggested the

Freemind Movie Hotel ( 菲 曼 电 影 酒 店 ), a

hotel with a projector and a stockpile of

recent and classic films in each room, which

I thought of longingly while coaxing my

muscles through the final hour of riding.

On arrival around 4:30 pm, the longawaited

shower was quickly followed by a

makeshift nest in my queen bed and a film

I had been meaning to watch for two years.

Going out for food wasn’t an appealing

option. I ordered delivery, sighing inwardly

when the elevator down was crowded

with tipsy middle-aged men making

comments about my reddish legs, but I

quickly forgot them once I was cuddled

up with a beer and warm bowl of tofu.

The journey home the next day was a

quick one. I could have ridden the same

route 100 kilometres home, but I was

exhausted. I had a class I needed to get to

early that evening. In addition, my gears

had been making funny sounds for the

last 30 kilometres, so I decided to test the

bus system out instead. Eight kilometres

to the bus station, a 10 RMB charge for

my bike, and a bumpy hour-long ride (in

which I nearly had a nervous breakdown

thinking about the pieces my bike would

emerge in) and I was back in Hangzhou.

Safe to say I didn’t do much exploring of

Huzhou, but I can say it was quiet and the

air was clean. People who have been to

Nanxun old town tell me it’s a beautiful

example of Jiangnan architecture, and

nearby Moganshan ( easily accessible from

Huzhou) is a pretty, if highly landscaped,

mountain getaway. Maybe next time I’ll

cycle to the calligraphy brush village. I’ll

certainly be wearing longer leggings if I do.

TAXIS AND

DIDIS DRIVING

YOU CRAZY?

WHY DON’T YOU

GIVE IT A SHOT?

By Nick Priquette

So, you’re living in China. You’ve been relying on taxis, buses and

subways to get you around town, but what if you had a buddy who

had a car you could use or you wanted to rent a car for a few days?

Or let’s say you’re planning to stick around the country for a few

years. Well, I’m here to tell you that getting your driver’s licence in

China is fairly simple, so long as you have a licence from your home

country. You should be able to get your licence in about 3 easy steps.

STEP 1: GET A

CHINESE FRIEND

If you don’t have a Chinese friend, try to

get one appointed to you - someone who

can speak pretty good English as you’ll

want their help to grab a few things along

the way, especially which translation

companies to use, and to go with you to

the Driver’s Licence Service Center on the

day of the test. I was blessed to be able to

use my wife during the whole process (not

to mention the fact that this was her idea

so I could drive and she could sleep!).

STEP 2: PREPARE

Things you should already have:

• Your passport

• You need to have a residence permit or

visa that lasts more than 90 days (if you’re

only here for 3 months, don’t bother).

• You need to bring the driver’s licence

you have from your home country.

Things you probably don’t have:

• You need to get your home country

driver’s licence translated into Chinese,

and the driver’s licence centre only allows

for about 13-15 translation companies

here in Hangzhou to do it. We used

Hangzhou Oritrans Translation Co. Ltd.,

telephone 159 6888-0142, 137 7782-

4579, 8702-8795, or 8702-6905; and email

at oritrans@gmail.com and zhiqiangj@

gmail.com. They were really quick about

getting the translations to us, and we did

everything over WeChat. We sent a photo

of my licence, paid them (130 RMB), gave

them our mailing address and they got

it to us in less than a week. Important

notice: Make sure the translation

company uses a transliteration of your

name. It doesn’t matter if you have a

Chinese name, the government doesn’t

32 redstarhangzhou.com


广 告 • 特 辑 // FEATURES /

care, they want your actual name. Even

though I already had a Chinese name,

贫 胜 利 , they wanted the transliteration

of Nicholas ( 尼 克 拉 斯 ), don’t make this

mistake, it’ll be a bit of a headache!

• You need to go to your local police

station to get a Registration Voucher

of Residence for Visitors from Overseas

(you should have already been given this

when you registered). This needs to be

stamped by the police station themselves.

• Lastly, make sure you take three

1-inch passport-style photos, with

a white background. I’ve been able

to get these for pretty cheap at

most print shops, around 12 to 18

photos for about 10-20 RMB.

Study

While you’re waiting for the translation

to come in, study for the test!

• I downloaded the app Laowaidrive on

my iPhone and

I’m pretty sure I’ve

seen it available

on Android

devices as well.

• This app has 1000

questions, some

deal with bus

and truck driving,

but most are the

same questions

you’ll get on

the actual test

(Chinglish and all).

• Using the free

version of the

app allows you

to answer 19-20

questions before

it pops up with an

ad, just exit the

ad, and scroll to

the last question

you answered. If

you wanna pay

for it, go ahead, it

may have some

cool amenities.

• If you don’t

want to get an

app, you can go

to the Driver’s

Licence Customer

Service Center (33 Hefang Street, 河

坊 街 33 号 ) and order the study book

from window 27 on the second floor.

According to hzprivatetour.com,

the book costs 20 RMB and comes

in English, French, Russian, German,

Italian, Japanese, Korean and Arabic.

• The test itself will have 100 questions:

40 are true or false, 60 are multiplechoice.

You need to get a 90 or higher

to pass, so make sure you study!

STEP 3: GET

IT DONE!

You’ve made it so far,

now you just need

to get it finished.

First, make sure you

go to the test centre

(same location as

the Driver’s Licence

Customer Service

Centre) fairly early if

you’re trying to knock

this out in one day.

The centre is open from 8:30 the to 16:45,

with a lunch break between 12:00 and 13:30.

Again, it will be helpful to have a Chinese

friend there if you can’t communicate well

in Chinese. When you go, you’ll have to get

a number. Lucky for you there’s a window

dedicated to foreign driver’s licence

holders, but make sure you choose the

right option when getting your number.

They’ll check your documents then have

you go through a minor physical exam:

they’ll check your sight, your hearing, and

your ability to grab something (maybe

to make sure you can control a steering

wheel). This will cost a total of 15 RMB. Next,

you’ll go back to the main window and set

up an appointment to take the test, just

set it up for later that day, which will cost

you 80 RMB. Important note: if you want

to take that test in a language other than

Chinese, make sure you let them know.

Then you just wait for the test. You will

have about an hour to complete the

test, which should be enough. I ended

up using about 40-45 minutes to do the

test and then went back and checked

my answers! You will not be able to take

any papers or pens into the test, and you

cannot use your phone (of course).

Once you’ve passed the test (and since

you studied for a whole week I’m sure

you will), then it’s just a matter of paying

10 RMB and waiting to get your newlylaminated

Chinese Driver’s Licence. If

you’re concerned about the test, don’t be -

I studied for a weekend and got a 98 on the

test my first time. If you don’t pass the first

time, you can take it again in the same day!

Good luck, I’ll see you on the road!

CULTURE // 广 告 • 文 化

I’ve always thought of myself as a

conservationist; of course, I have my

own shortcomings, but for the most

part, I am a person at peace with the

world. I grew up watching shows about

countries that were making leaps when it

came to recycling and practising the art

of sustainability. I knew certain countries

were really big on finding ways to reduce

pollution. Some places had already started

making recycling a must, with the risk of

final penalties facing those who didn’t follow

the rules. Littering seemed to be a crime in

these instances. The most I saw in the cities

I lived in growing up in Zimbabwe were the

occasional trashcans here and there and no

real consequences for those who littered.

As time passed, the world view on the

environment started to evolve, and

things started to take a turn for the better.

There were even cleanup campaigns

around the major cities all around Africa.

When I came to China, things seemed

fairly normal. There were older street

cleaners that I would notice cleaning

the few scraps I’d see laying around.

Trash cans were a lot more pronounced

in Hangzhou and it didn’t take long to

realise people didn’t litter much here.

Halfway through the summer this year I

came across the new coloured trash cans

and I honestly didn’t pay any attention

to them - I figured it was something new

that the city was trying out. Imagine my

surprise when I was leaving my trash in

the morning to find a young gentleman

standing by the trash cans wearing a

reflective orange shirt and white gloves,

giving what seemed like instructions. At

first, he didn’t seem moved by me at all

until I reached to drop my leftovers in one

of the cans. Almost immediately he started

saying something, as he reached for my

trash and started separating the food scraps

from the plastic lunch boxes they were in.

Not long after that I got to attend a trash

sorting event that REDSTAR held which

helped really clear things up for me. All

in all, I can say I have come through this

experience a lot wiser. Now I feel like I’m

helping out in making the world a better

place, make sure you play your part!

GOVERNMENT GRANTS

FOR SMALL TO MEDIUM

SIZED BUSINESSES:

WHAT YOU NEED

TO KNOW

TopTalents’ partner and Overseas

Project Director Miguel A. Marca

shares his thoughts on government

grants for international SMEs.

Fundraising through governmental

grants has its similarities with

fundraising through private

investors or local venture capitalists,

as some of the same aspects are taken

into consideration during the application

process: things like the members of the

founding team, the product, service and

technology, and the business model’s

feasibility. However, some requirements

for government grants might be higher

than others, such as an applicant’s

educational background, IP (intellectual

property), patents, and so on. The truth is,

although things like a strong educational

background and IPs are important for

a successful application, they are not

must-have requirements – for example,

evaluations for government grants can

be easier and faster if the applicant

has experience in entrepreneurship

or shows a willingness to cooperate

and contribute to Chinese society.

Don’t be deterred by rejection – this is part

of the process, as some cities and districts

may focus more on specific industries.

However, as governmental departments

are always talking to each other internally,

if you are rejected by one location they

may still be able to recommend the

project to other districts or cities.

The application procedure itself has some

differences as well: when raising funds

through government grants, the application

procedure can be divided into three

stages: the “Evaluation Stage”, “Negotiation

Stage” and “Implementation Stage”.

Many cities in China have plans for

international SMEs, and the degree and

requirements will vary according to the

city and district where the international

talent is applying. Here in Hangzhou’s

Gongshu District, there is an attractive

international talent plan known as the

“Canal Elite”, provided by the district-level

government at Hangzhou International

Talents Entrepreneurship & Innovation

Park (HITEIP), which is located alongside

the world’s cultural heritage site – the

Grand Canal. This park was officially

established in July 2017 as the first

International Talents Entrepreneurship

& Innovation Park in China. Talents that

pass the “Canal Elite” district evaluation

and land in Gongshu District’s HITEIP

will be entitled to friendly policies such

as up to 15 million RMB startup funding,

an office space of up to 1500 square

meters, housing, loan subsidies, and more.

We at Zhejiang TopTalents Technology

Co Ltd. are pleased to help overseas

talents have access to such policies.

In summary, when trying to enter the

Chinese market and subsequently secure

funding either through local investors,

VCs, or through governmental grants, a

good starting point will be to research

governmental plans and policies offered

to international SMEs in the target city.

The city of Hangzhou is a good choice,

especially in the rapidly developing

Gongshu District, and with the support

of HITEIP and Zhejiang TopTalents

Technology Co Ltd., securing funding

through government grants has never

been easier. If you want to know more

about the procedure,

how to apply for the

government grants

and the benefits

you can get feel

TRAVEL // 广 告 • 旅 游

LET’S GET HAIRY

IN SUZHOU!

By Sabrina Valles

A quick Bing search of the word “Suzhou”

showcases a wide variety of results:

the historic canals of Pingjiang Road,

the trouser-shaped Suzhou Centre,

and the beautiful, ancient, UNESCOclassified

gardens. However, expats

living in Suzhou have discovered another

reason why tourists flock to the city

affectionately known as "the Venice of

the East" - to visit the home of the hairy

crab, Yangcheng Lake ( 阳 澄 湖 ).

36 redstarhangzhou.com


广 告 • 旅 游 // TRAVEL /

Located to the northeast of Suzhou’s

city centre, Yangcheng Lake spans 120

square kilometres. The lake surrounds

Lotus Island, an ecological peninsula

that is named after its shape, which is also

the residence of over 300 families. On a

clear day, visitors can spot the high-rise

buildings of Suzhou Industrial Park in the

distance while exploring the rustic, fishing

village spread throughout the peninsula.

Lotus Island’s serene and natural wetland is

covered with trees and grass fields, offering

a break from the fast-pace of city life.

From September to December, hairy crabs

are shipped from Yangcheng Lake to

throughout China, but can also be enjoyed

at one of the many farmhouses on Lotus

Island and the hairy crab restaurants nearby

the lake. The crabs’ soft, fuzzy hair on its

legs is a talking point for many first-time

eaters. Surprisingly, female and male crabs

taste best at specific times of the year.

Female crabs are best eaten in September

of the Lunar calendar (October of the

Gregorian calendar) and are characterized

by the orange-yellow, moist roe in the body.

Male crabs are best eaten in October of the

Lunar calendar (November of the Gregorian

calendar) and have white roe inside the

body. It is recommended to eat the crabs at

the end of October (Gregorian calendar) to

taste each crab gender’s flavour during their

peak time. Breaking free the meat from

inside the crab’s legs is absolutely worth

the effort. When eaten at a restaurant, all

crabs are typically served with a bowl of

soy sauce and chopped garlic. Just like

most Chinese restaurants, customers often

order an array of food served familystyle

to accompany the main dish.

In addition to eating hairy crabs and

embracing nature, Lotus Island offers other

points of interest, including such attractions

as the Mansion of the Champion, Xi Tsui

Wetland, Yi Yuan cultural centre, and

Temple of the Pharmacist. Visitors may also

catch a glimpse of the farmers catching

crabs on the lake – an experience worth

observing that truly embodies the saying,

“from farm to table.”

HOW TO GET THERE

Take the train to Suzhou North

Station (Suzhou Bei Zhan, 苏 州 北 站 )

Order a taxi or a Didi, or hop on bus

no. 866 and exit at Yanjiagang. Walk

2.2 kilometres south towards the

pier. If you prefer not to walk, take

bus no. 866 and exit at Tianjing stop.

Then, take bus no. 87 and exit at

Yangcheng Lake Tourism Centre.

Yangcheng Lake Lian Hua Island

boat pier, 1 Chengzhong Lu,

Xiangcheng District, Suzhou

苏 州 阳 澄 湖 澄 中 路 1 号 莲 花 岛 码 头

0512 6544-0288

To head to Lotus Island from

the pier, walk towards the ticket

booth to purchase a boat ticket, or

jump on a small golf cart or tram.

Tickets range from 10 RMB to 50

RMB per person depending on the

transportation type.

Breaking free the meat from inside the

crab’s legs is absolutely worth the effort.

Transportation tip: Ask the taxi

driver if they would be willing to

take you back from Yangcheng

Lake before they drop you off, as

sometimes getting a taxi back

from there can be a little difficult.

Otherwise, the best way to call a taxi

through Didi is by walking to the

closest bus stop.

TIPS FOR RENTING AN

APARTMENT IN CHINA

By Kyla Robertson

Renting an apartment anywhere

can be stressful - there’s a lot

at stake and you want to feel

comfortable in your new home.

When you first move to China, not only

do you have to adjust to a new culture,

you most likely also have to decide on

a new place to live relatively quickly.

Although you’ve probably already

determined where you are going to live

for the moment we’ve answered some

of the most frequently asked questions

people ask when renting an apartment

in China. We hope you’ll find these useful

for the future if you decide to relocate

or useful to share with a friend or new

colleague who is preparing to make the

move here.

1) FINDING AN

APARTMENT

Is there a certain time of day I

should look for apartments?

Aim to look for apartments during

daylight hours. Not only will

this give you a good idea of the

amount of light in the apartment,

but you can also check-out to see

if there is ongoing construction

near your potential apartment.

Construction can begin very early,

and depending on your lifestyle,

could really put a damper on your

sleep schedule.

What should I check for inside the

apartment?

checking the water pressure is a must,

as this can be an issue with certain

apartments. If it’s not great you can

double-check with the landlord to see

if they have it turned down. If you’re

really keen on the place you can buy a

water pressure pump on Taobao, but

installing it might require the services

of a professional.

Check the cupboards and be on

the lookout for evidence of bugs or

potential dampness issues. Indicators

like bug spray or insect repellents can

help when the pests themselves can’t

be easily spotted.

The quality of the appliances, like

the air conditioners, can be a good

indicator of the investment the

landlord has put into the apartment.

If the landlord invests in decent

appliances, then they likely take good

care of their place.

What should I look for outside the

apartment?

Take a look at common areas in the

apartment complex, this is a good

gauge to see how well the property is

managed. Is the trash/recycling area

well organised? Are the elevators and

stairs clean?

What if I already know the area/

compound I want to live in?

If you’ve been eyeing a specific

compound, you might be able to find

an available unit without using a real

estate agent. One REDSTAR contributor

was able to get her apartment

simply by inquiring directly within the

complex to see which apartments

were available for rent.

Do I need a real estate agent?

Chances are, you probably do. There

are exceptions, like the example

mentioned above, as well as rental

apps you can download on your phone

to search for apartments. That said,

all the housing apps we’ve seen are

only in Chinese, so your language skills

would have to be good. Alternatively,

you may be able to take over someone

else’s lease and avoid an agent

altogether.

2) SIGNING A LEASE

How much of a deposit should I pay

to secure the accommodation?

The standard deposit is one month’s

rent. This deposit will be used as the

damage deposit and will be returned

to you when you move out as long as

you do not cause any damage.

How often should I pay rent?

Often landlords will ask you to pay

your rent three months at a time. That

said, this can be negotiable, and if you

prefer to pay monthly try to negotiate

this before you sign the lease.

How much will my real-estate agent

charge?

Your agent will charge a percentage

of the monthly rent you pay as a onetime

commission fee. The agency fee

differs depending on the city in China;

in Hangzhou, it is most common for

renters to pay 50% of one months’ rent

to the agency. The landlord also usually

also pays a 50% one-time commission

fee to the agency; thus, the agency

usually receives one month’s rent in

total for renting out the apartment.

What documents should I check

before I officially sign the lease?

Be sure to review the landlord’s

Property Certificate. This will ensure

the landlord is who they say they are.

The landlord can show you their ID

card along with the property title, so

make sure the information matches.

Once you have decided on a

place, make sure you get a written

confirmation for everything you pay

for. Ask for a receipt for the deposit

and the rent you pay for. Sometimes

getting a rental deposit back can be

difficult; ensure you have all the proper

documentation for when the time

comes.

3) MOVING IN

Do I need to do anything else once I

move in?

You will have to register yourself as

living at your new apartment at the

local police station. You will need

information from your landlord, such

as the official Property Ownership

Certificate and the Lease Agreement.

Your agent can help you with this.

What happens when I need to cancel

my lease?

Most contracts are 1 year’s duration.

If you have to cancel before the year

is up, so the chances are you won’t

get your deposit back. However, you

may be able to find someone else to

take over your lease and then get your

deposit back.

Anything else I should know?

Be sure to clarify with your agent and/

or landlord if there are additional fees

for you to renew your lease for another

year. Some agencies may charge a

yearly fee to help you coordinate with

your landlord/building or there may be

other hidden fees you’ll want to know

about.

Although not completely exhaustive,

we hope this Q and A provides you

with some good insight when looking

for an apartment in China!

HANGZHOU FAMILY

INTRODUCING

THE HANGZHOU

HARLEQUINS

By Lawrie Keen

The Hangzhou Harlequins Rugby

Club is the infamous social rugby

team of Zhejiang's capital. The

club consists of old rugby players

missing home, new recruits looking for

that next challenge and anyone else

who enjoys the fun side of life. The

club was founded back in 2006 by

a group of expats with a passion for

the sport and were looking to throw

the 'egg' around on a small grass field

outside of a factory. The club grows

stronger each year with each new

face that injects energy into the team.

Although rugby is normally considered

a 'manly' sport, back in 2018 we

officially started a women's rugby

team, aptly named the 'Harlequeens'

for their royal grace on the field.

The Club participates in the Eastern

conference of a country-wide league

system separated by region. The team’s

main rivals include Shanghai and

Nanjing, with matches being played

throughout the year at home and

away locations. Rugby has a handful

of variations from the fast-paced

seven-a-side version, to the traditional

15-a-side Rugby Union which draws

the largest crowds. The Harlequins

take part in both the traditional

15s format and in a rare amateur

10-a-side format that is popular in

Asia. The 10s version is popular for its

slower pace and social atmosphere,

perfect for players with beer-bellies.

Rugby has always been a minor

sport across the Middle Kingdom.

However, recent pushes from Sports

Universities and the introduction of

Rugby Sevens into the Olympics has

meant that our sport is finally being

noticed. Leagues have been set up

and funding allocated from big names

such as Hangzhou's very own Alibaba.

The Chinese National Team is making

massive strides and has become a top

contender in Asia as well as abroad.

The Chinese Women's 7s team has

been a leading example of this, even

developing to become a threat to

traditional rugby playing countries like

New Zealand and South Africa. This

September and October is the first time

the Rugby World Cup has been hosted

in an Asian Nation, over in Japan.

One of the cornerstones of rugby is

its reliance on community. This means

events have an array of local foods,

social groups and youth teams to

show their skills and talents. Our Club

has always been a major supporter

of youth rugby and has aspirations to

create a place where children can learn

and develop new skills while playing

sport. The Hangzhou Touch-Rugby

League has been a huge contributor to

this and is a great way for beginners

to get into the sport without the hits

and bruises. We welcome anyone from

any background, as long as they have

the passion for a new (or old) sport

and are looking to make plenty of new

friends in this great city. Come be part

of our community, meet new friends,

have great chances to travel around

China and get fit! See you on the pitch!

MEDICAL

RESOURCES

IN HANGZHOU

By A. Michelle

“Help! I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!”

Those of you old enough to remember

this classic American TV commercial

may chuckle, but for the rest of the

population this is a real fear. You’re

hurt/sick/in pain and in a foreign

country – often without a command

for the native language…what next?

with the medical community at

large, running English Salons at

Sir Run Run Shaw Hospital, and

facilitator as a licensed medical

insurance broker.

When asked for a “pearl of

wisdom” to help ease the pain

for expats in Hangzhou, founder

of Alicare, Ali replied, “Know

your address - there are three

main hospitals in Hangzhou,

you should find out which is the

closest and plan to go there in

case of an emergency. Avoid

calling 120 or an ambulance –

the wait is often 20-30 minutes

and that can be the difference

between life and death; success

and failure. Become familiar with

your local hospital beforehand

so you know what to do in case

of an emergency. You should

talk to your insurance provider

beforehand also, so you know

the procedures they require for

coverage.”

LOCAL HOSPITALS

WITH DEPARTMENTS

FOR FOREIGNERS:

• Zhejiang Provincial People’s

Hospital has a VIP Unit with

English speaking nurses

and doctors. Each patient

is assigned to one of the

well-trained advocates who

assist patients and guide

them through the maze of

departments in this very large

hospital. The VIP department is

open 24 hours a day, 7 days a

week and has direct billing with

most insurance companies.

• Sir Run Run Shaw has an

International Healthcare

Center with English speaking

staff. They run monthly salons

and seminars in English for

patients to come and meet

doctors and begin to establish

relationships in the medical

community. Although they

are currently open only from

Monday through Friday from

8:00 -12:00 and 13:30 – 17:00,

special accommodations can be

made (for an additional fee) for

Luckily, healthcare options for

foreigners in Hangzhou have

made great leaps and bounds

in recent years. In addition to an

increase of English speaking doctors

and nurses, there are agencies working

hard to bridge the gap for expats.

The leader in this category has to be

Alicare which functions as a medical

advocate and resource for foreigners

visiting and living in Hangzhou.

Alicare offers a wide range of services

including acting as unbiased liaison
