I've lived in Harbin for over 20 years and I know Harbin very well.

I'd be happy to provide tour service to people who come to my hometown.

I also offer Mandarin lessons and translation service.

Hi. Tiankun,

I'm from Canada also and I've wanted to go to Harbin and QiQi. Its funny that us Canadians want to go to these places :D

I heard Harbin can be dangerous though. Maybe its because everyone drinks? I heard people sometimes get mugged. Hearing there are Russian prostitutes kinda makes it sound dangerou. I heard Moscow was one of the world's most dangerous cities (outside Africa).

I looked for teaching jobs there before but the wages listed were small for a Canadian (5,000-6,000rmb/month).

Does your temperature get to -40c in the cities in winter?

Hey Jake

How's Tianjin treating you? I was there for a week about 2 months ago, and I liked it there - the old buildings and small streets all reminded me of Harbin(I was on my way back to Harbin).

It's definitely safe in Harbin I can assure you, I've been here for so many years and I go out to the same places those Russians go, I've never been involved in a fight. It all depends on who you are, how much you drink and how you behave. And Harbin people are generally very friendly.

The temperature never gets to -40C. The lowest last year was about -32C one night, and usually at daytime it's about -22C on average. You can always wear warm clothes, or stay inside where it's warm with heating.

5,000-6,000rmb/month is pretty good, much more than we make. Everything here is cheaper you know.
