Why Serviced Apartments not Home-stays or Dorms?- Dorms tend to be far from CBD, and aren’t compatible with working life- Home-stays have their own issues and can hamper networking/enjoyment- Important for keeping the high levels of organisation – logistics for events etc. - language issues - what they need to bring with them - internet!!!
Why you need a team on the ground? - China is not Europe! - Health & personal issues - Transportation, Logistics & Visas - Internship monitoring - Company relationships - Events & feel good factor – learning from others’ experiences.
