Anyone Else in China?


in China by @nathanthomas |  | 12 comments

Hi Team,

I’m totally new here so forgive me if I’ve made some horrible faux pas by asking a question so soon :slight_smile:

I’m a kiwi but have been a digital nomad for over three years now, and have spent the last year or so in China, currently in Shanghai.

Are there many other digital nomads in this part of the world? Most of the international friends I’ve made locally are students or corpo expats, I’ve not come across that many entrepreneurial / nomadic types here - the visa and internet issues certainly make this understandable, though the country very much rewards long term travel.

Would be curious to see if there are many other like minded folk here?

Cheers,
Nathan
