Q: Is everyone happy in the city they live in?

I have lived in Beijing, Shanghai and Hangzhou (Briefly). I really enjoyed each one but for different reasons. I feel like Whatever city you end up in, in China if you do it right you will have a good time, meet a lot of people, and enjoy the city. So having said that, are you all happy where you are?

i am.  daqing may not be glamorous, but it fits me.  i moved here from LA and hated big busy cities.  daqing has a very low population density, since the size of the terriority considered daqing is massive.  its a slower city, but big enough to offer me whatever i need or want.

I am in a lower Tier city but I have lived in pretty much every Tier from Beijing -> Tianjin -> Suzhou -> Changzhou -> And now Yuncheng. 

 

I like smaller to mid sized cities because foreigners can get away with more and also because you usually have everything you need without all the hustle and bustle. 

 

Cost is living is lower and I just feel more relaxed. Am I happy here? In a sense yes, but it is hard to be happy where you are not truly accepted (China).

* Hefei was (surprisingly) enjoyable, mainly for its slow pace. Living on a large campus probably helped a lot, spent most of my time there. Was a bit tired of it after 9 months tho.

* I feel lucky to be in Suzhou, neat urban planning and the money to back it. Plenty of green areas, bikes lane, nice walks around the lakes. It does not feels crowded. Pollution levels used to be not too bad by Chinese standard, but sadly this winter is quite bad.
