This area is popular for those working in the CBD area as transport is made quite easy with both the Third Ring Road and the new subway lines. Most accommodation in this area are either brand new or only a few years old, making this a popular choice among expatriates on a budget. Though residents do their shopping in other areas, there is a Carrefour and a WalMart in this area. Heavy traffic during peak hours make it difficult to get to CBD in a reasonable amount of time.
Ideal for the small and mid-range budgets, new complexes and well-furnished apartments such as Pingod Apartments, Fulicheng Apartments, and Landgent Chateau cater to expatriate tastes. From CNY 3,000 to CNY 30,000, prices for accommodation in this area is reasonable for most budgets.
