    So how much do you estimate for just bare essentials like rent and food in U.S. dollars a month?I do not go to the bars or restaraunts. I prefer to hang out with nature.

    How long is your visa good for? Is it easy to renew?

    I am a Canadian living in China on 700 a month and it is good.
