Best Cities In China


The Top Ten

1 Shanghai Shanghai

IT looks great! And it is developing very fast!

I have lived in Shanghai for years, and I also involved in a frequent business trip in different cities in China. I like Shanghai, it is modern, fashionable with open culture.

I studied there before. Transportation is convenient. I meet both locals and foreigners. Amazing tourist spots, including The Bund and Pearl Oriental Tower. Every Shanghai visitor must have mixture of Western food and Chinese food in their diets. Also it's a major economic city of China. Overall, wonderful experience.

2 Hong Kong Hong Kong Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, is an autonomous territory on the eastern side of the Pearl River estuary in East Asia.

Hong Kong S.A.R. was a british colony, and had been separated from mainland China for 99 years, and has totally different sets of laws, resources, and culture from mainland. Even now, the "one country, two systems" policy remains.

Let's put it this way, HK people are allowed to use facebook, google, and do not get censored. The government is a lot less corrupted, people are way more disciplined, educated, hygienic, and open minded than those in mainland China. There is even a special organisation ICAC (Independent Commission Against Corruption) working effectively to investigate and stop corruption. There is way more freedom in Hong Kong than in any other place in mainland China, people have the rights to protest and speak for what they believe in. Incidents that happen in mainland China do not happen in HK, such as police beating up hawking children and protesters being "committed suicide" (as in the government claiming the individual's cause of death was ...more

The only good thing in Hong Kong is that I can at least access any google linked website and watch youtube. Mainland cities in China is nothing compared to Hong Kong because of the Western Society and Freedom of speech. Hong Kong is by far better than any city in South East Asia

The most civilized city

I would LOVE to visit here 1 day!

3 Beijing Beijing

Indigenous people in Beijing are humorous, easy going, responsible and generous. Also, many of them are highly educated.

The food in Beijing are also very delicious. Like Beijing duck and soybean milk. They are not weird at all. All of them are the most normal food, like chicken, flour, beef, etc.

Beijing is a great city with a rich cultural heritage and long history. In my eyes, Beijing is absolutely the best city in China.

Yes Beijing rocks! Don't listen to other people saying that China is gruesome. It is our own tradition and other racist people can't say anything about it.

I've been to Beijing and it is awesome! I've walked on the Great Wall and it is in Beijing and it is fun! This should've been number one

Beijing is really beautiful.
