Considering TEFL in China

Hi, all. I'm new to TEFL (still finishing my cert), and am looking into teaching in China when I finish. I'm still trying to get a feel for it. So many horror stories! Is it really that bad? Would you please provide specifics, in concrete terms? In terms of what I should prepare for, etc.?

I literally don't know a word of Chinese, and of course, I have no contacts there. Are there any (active) TEFL forums you could recommend?

Thanks in advance for any advice!
