For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.
I need to send money to the Philippines, and was going to use Western Union.
I looked up the W.U. outlets for Changchun on the internet, and found that there are several banks that provide the services such as Bank of Jilin, Agricultural Bank & Postal Savings Bank.
However, when I walked over today it was closed. Someone, a passerby, then told me that will not open for another 7 days??!!
So all the banks aka Western Union close down for an entire week for the holiday?
Can anybody confirm? Are there any other Western Union sources that I don't know about in Changchun besides those listed banks?
Thanks in advance,
Michael (Just got here a month ago)
I like this idea of a card alot. Sounds practical if somebody will be sending money regularly!
