Q: Are you in a happy city ?

I'll be damned if the hell hole that is Changsha is on this list

 

http://shanghaiist.com/2014/03/29/shanghai-does-not-belong-to-20-happies...

 

It must be a made up list, where some Changsha official has <random favor> to the people making the list

Changsha a happy city ???

a list clearly made up by someone who didn't have to live there.

 

that means i used to live in a 'happy' city (Changsha) and still do. (Tianjin)

 

I think a Changsha support group would be in order for all of us who had to do time there

Why my Fuk. isn't on the list? I don't think that list is reliable. Tianjin sucks, cause air and it's too big.

Wierd. Except for maybe Tianjin all of these cities are places people migrate away from if they want to have a hope of getting out of poverty. Sooo they are saying happy= lazy?
No pressure? Or that in the top tier cities they have such a huge population away from their familis and thus unhappy?

I always find those polls utterly ridiculous. You can take as many parameters as you like, and blend them in with whatever math you enjoy, it'll still be the same tabloid stupidity in the end.

Everyone has different expectations when living in a place, so different it's just impossible to evaluate any city/country acurately enough to say whether this is a nice place or not.

In most places, tranquility is just one block away from a noisy place. Getting an good job was just a matter of refusing the bad one...

Lol, Hefei in the top ^^ That city name sounds like "Fat Together" in Chinese, and it's a good summary. You go there, meet some simple but kind soul and marry her/him. You'll have the least exciting life, regular like a clock, and together you get old and fat. But in that monotonous routine of 40 years you'll find some form of happiness. You'll be oblivious to the air pollution, and you won't suffer of cultural life : you can not conceive that things can be different. So yes, in that sense, Hefei is very happy.

Shenzhen is a great city, I wouldn't say it's a happy city, but it's a busy NEW YORK CITY without the traffic. But I'm happy to be in a busy city.

What do you mean by 'happy cities' ? I don't think there's any really happy cities in the world.

 

I live in Qingdao, think its pretty good compared to other Chinese cities. It has mountains, seaside & an old German area (it was  a German colony) with some lovely old European villas & churches, also has some islands of its coast.

 

But, as often happens people ( including myself ) are too busy working/studying to enjoy the benefits. I try at times, but usually not enough.

 

I'm sure others here have a similar story to tell...

I spent three interminable days in Changsha and contemplated ending it all.

 

Haikou is definitely the happiest Chinese city I have lived in
