I bought my Swedish blueair 203 air purifier when I was working in Beijing in March 2013. I would switch it on during the night at home (about 7 to 8 hours per day on average).

Hello all,My wife and I will be moving to Dongguan in early August with our wonderful 8-month old son. We have about three weeks of free time and some training before we begin teaching at the International School of Dongguan. Obviously, once we start teaching we will need a nanny to look after our son. We are hoping to get some feedback on the availability of nannies in the area and also the cost. The director of the school is currently helping but we would appreciate any help from the…Continue
