Q: Hong kong or mainland?...if you have choice

I'm watching on old classic Hong Kong movie called

"Chungking Express" i'm just thinking that Hong Kong is actually a cool place: the best of both worlds. As much as I am cosy in my comfort zone which is mainland, at times im really fed up with the " subliminal" CCP messages everywhere and so forth, YES its safer on mainland...I suppose....but how about that old Bruce Li Hong Kong?

 

Which would you choose?

 

Lets be honest

If the remuneration that I received could give me a lifestyle comparable to the Mainland, I wouldn't hesitate to move to HK. The only real advantage of living in the Mainland is the comparative cost of living.

Shenzhen, China. HK has too many people, hard to own or buy anything there if you're married there.. Mcdonlads takes forever there which was a surprise to me. Love Shenzhen, feeling right at home here, HK feels like another district rather than city...

Depend on which part of the Mainland we are talking about.

 

I love Foshan a lot more than HK, more room, more greenery, cheaper, better urban planning, nowadays it's easy to find almost anything you want/need to buy, girls are better looking and friendlier here, more opportunities to make money.

 

Hong Kong VS Foshan? Foshan

Hong Kong VS Shenzhen? Shenzhen

Hong Kong VS Xiamen? Xiamen

Hong Kong VS Zhengzhou? Hong Kong

Hong Kong VS Beijing? Hong Kong

Hong Kong VS Harbin? Hong Kong.

When I lived  in HK, 4000 HKD got you one coffin sized bedroom and one closet sized bathroom. Even by Shanghai standards, that's absurd. Literally my feet could touch one wall and the top of  my head the other. This is just one example of the massive costs with living there. So ya, mainland all the way, anyday.

Safer in mainland? BS!!!!!!!! HK all the way hands down! I haven't lived in Foshan but I have lived in Xiamen and Shenzhen. Although these are great cities to live especially Shenzhen I still would choose HK this assumes money is not an issue. Can't beat a free society.

Everyone needs money to live a nice life and HKers are no exception. The difference is in their values, being mannerless, advancement through guanxi, bribes...etc are viewed with disgust and considered a sign of incompetence. If you earn your money fair and square with solid work, you get real food, real relationships and a nice cave, one with a decent view.

Go to search on wechat and type it in and you'll find one there than test yourself and look at your score and see if you can improve anywhere to make the score higher, better start improving your chinese and hopefully youre in a needy city. Just for the record: ESL teachers or teachers of any subject will always be a B card Talent. -- ironman510
