Petsitting near Qingdao CHINA 1 week at the start of October
If you are looking for a comfortable but genuine experience of living in China, then here is your opportunity.
We are looking for a responsible animal lover(s) to look after our little ones at Christmas. Our apartment is in the distract of Huangdao near Qingdao city. It has 2 bedrooms, Wi-Fi, a washing machine, a kitchen with all the equipment you could need, a dining table, warm double-headed shower, and large sofa. During Winter months, there is internal heating so you’ll be comfortably warm. Our apartment building is within a safe gated compound which has paths to walk around.
Huangdao is like a mini-city itself with restaurants, shops and supermarkets galore. Our apartment is conveniently located with everything you need located within about a 10-minute walk including the promenade along the sea front. A little further afield is an outlet mall (with a Ferris wheel) and another large mall but this is about a 10-minute car journey away.
Qingdao city itself is an inexpensive journey away where you can see an interesting mixture of Chinese and German architecture. There are beaches, malls, and tourist attractions including the brewery for the Chinese beer called TsingTao. If you like trying different foods then this is the place for you. You can find many different types of cuisine including a variety of seafood, Korean, Sichuan, Japanese, and Western. There is an interesting street in Qingdao where if you are feeling brave you can even try some insects or have a beer in a carrier bag!
Although you may be worried about a lack of Chinese, don’t worry. Some places have English on their menus and if they don’t, often they are patient and happy enough to use translation apps. Qingdao has been voted one of the most livable cities in China.
We have 3 cats and 2 dogs. That may sound like a lot of work but they really aren’t. Aside from the obvious food and water, the dogs require short walks in the morning, afternoon and night time. They are nervous at first but will soon be giving you lots of love and attention. The cats are even less work, requiring you to just clean their litter, but they will appreciate your company. All of the pets are friendly.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. We love living here and are happy to share our home and experiences with you.
