|Well I've got another 8-10 years before my retirement but am seriously thinking about that, can anybody tell or advise me is it possible for a foreigner to get hold of a farmland, built a beautiful house on it, rear some fishes, or farm animals, or even into dog breeding？I am actually think of starting it straight away and start to do things in stages.|

|Sure it's all possible though f\rmland might be a bit of an issue and it would be difficult without a local partner. Partners are easy to find, honest ones might be a bit harder to find. You should look for someone who has local contacts and you should also expect to grease a few palms of those contacts.|

Coastal Chinese city offers respite for Olympic tourists By Ben Blanchard
XIAMEN, China, Jan 23 (Reuters) - Dirty, polluted, and congested -- China's large cities have an unenviably poor reputation.
But Xiamen, located on the southeast coast two-and-a-half hours by plane from Beijing, is so different from that image that you could be forgiven for thinking you are no longer in China.
Long, clean beaches, lush vegetation, fresh seafood, beautiful old buildings and a relaxed atmosphere, Xiamen is refreshingly different, a hidden treasure.
It makes an ideal place for a long weekend city break, especially as an escape from the chaos and construction of capital city Beijing, host of this year's Summer Olympic Games.
Tourism is booming in Xiamen, helped in part by the opening of low cost flights from Southeast Asia. Last year, Xiamen played host to more than one million overseas visitors.
Xiamen is one of the country's wealthier cities, thanks to its strategic coastal position which has helped it attract billions of dollars in foreign investment, and it's only a hour's flying time from Hong Kong.

|I spent 3 1/2 months in China last year and will return this year but stay on as a teacher. I have a pretty successful computer business in the US but like China so much I would close up shop in a heartbeat. I still have many years to retirement but staying long term is easier if you have a business there or are married to a Chinese citizen.|
