Best Cities In China

The Top Ten
1 Shanghai Shanghai is one of the four municipalities under the direct administration of the central government of the People's Republic of China, the largest city in China by population, and the second most populous city proper in the world, with a population of 24.18 million as of 2017. It is a global financial ...read more.

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.

People who lives in Shanghai are more disciplined and educated. Many expats dwell here and they love the place. I can speak for myself 'because I/ve been travelling back and forth here in Shanghai.

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.

Shanghai is far more developed and westerner friendly than other large cities like Beijing. The city management is also far better. The air is also better than Beijing, Shenyang, Changchun or other Chinese cities.

2 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 suicide, when ...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

Honestly what I love most about Hong Kong is its awesome skyline

Hong Kong is badass. Chinese, Kung Fu and awesome action movie.

3 Beijing

Beijing may not beat other cities in china with the number of skyscrapers, that aspect can easily be changed, but the rich imperial past that dwells in this city remains as the heart of the city. It is also one of the most modern city that has the 8th tallest building in the world.

Beijing is the capital, it is the center of culture and economy. I suggest going to Beijing CBD central business district where there is the new skyscraper called China Zun that is 528m tall and to forbidden city, hutongs, Great Wall or galaxy soho or sanlitun if you want to go shopping!

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.
