Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I joined CS when I first moved to Chengdu - I didn't need a couch nor could I offer one, but I made some great friends through contacting people for a chat and attending meetings. I recently had my first guest and really enjoyed the experience :-)


When I first moved to Chengdu (and joined CS) I made many new friends through CS. Later I hosted a few people and it was a great experience.
The Chengdu group has a wonderful forum. If you have a question, someone will be able to answer it in no time!
