为什么那么多人喜欢中国?

 


I’ve lived in Shanghai for the past 3 years.

过去三年我一直住在上海。

Things I really like:

我真正喜欢的事情:

-extremely safe – you never have to worry about violent or confrontational crimes on the street – everyone I know feels perfectly safe walking anywhere in the city at any time of day or night. The only crimes I see are stolen bicycles/scooters, but they do it when other people aren’t around.

-非常安全-你永远不必担心街上的暴力或对抗性犯罪-我认识的每个人都觉得在城市的任何时间走在任何地方都非常安全。我看到的唯一的犯罪是偷自行车/摩托车,但他们也只有在别人不在的时候才会这么做。

-transportation is great – one of the biggest and best subways in the world, average cost is $0.50 per trip, tons of bus lines all over the city, $0.30 per ride no matter the distance. Taxis are extremely cheap for a big city – 14rmb ($2) for the first 2.5km, and 2rmb ($0.30) per extra km, no added cost to fill the taxi with 4 people. Didi (like Uber) is everywhere and you can pay only a bit more than that and have nice cars like Audi, BMW, and nicer Chinese made cars, which are really getting better and nicer everyday. When Uber was in Shanghai, my average cab cost was $3–4 using Uber black (hence why they sold off in China!).

-伟大的在交通-世界上最大最好的地铁之一,平均每次旅行的成本是0.5美元,城市里有大量的公交线路,无论距离远近,每次旅行的成本都是0.30美元。对于大城市来说,出租车非常便宜——前2.5公里14元人民币(合2美元),每多开一公里2元人民币(合0.30美元),4人乘坐出租车没有额外的成本。滴滴(就像优步)无处不在,你只需多花一点点钱,就能拥有像奥迪、宝马这样的好车,以及更好的中国制造的车,这些车每天都在变得越来越好。Uber在上海的时候,我使用Uber black打车的平均费用是3-4美元(这就是Uber在中国打不开局面的原因!)

-you can eat as cheap or as expensive as you’d like – you can eat cheaper Chinese food or street bbq and easily have a meal for $2–3, or you can try any of the nicer Chinese or foreign restaurants all over the city and pay as much as you want! There is a large variety of food options from all over the world.

你可以你想吃的食物,无论是便宜的还是贵的,你可以吃中国的廉价食物或街头烧烤,而且一顿饭只要简单花2 – 3美元,或者你可以在整个城市尝试任何更好的中餐或外国餐馆,多少钱都可以花的出去。这晨有世界各地有各种各样的食物可供选择。

-delivery services – I get groceries delivered (free delivery), 5 gallon water jugs, takeout from almost any restaurant in the city, and more… my roommate and I have found a french wine guy, an argentenian beef guy, a baker, a carpenter; all are willing to provide delivery services for little or nothing, and you can buy really great quality stuff for significantly cheaper than the grocery/retail stores. Last year my phone broke and a Chinese colleague ordered me a new Xiaomi phone while we were at work at 10am, and it arrived in the office around 1pm, free delivery.

-快递服务-我可以免费送货,5加仑的水罐,市内任何一家餐馆的外卖等等。我的室友和我找到了一个法国葡萄酒商,一个阿根廷牛肉商,一个面包师,一个木匠;他们都愿意提供低成本或零成本的送货服务,而且你可以以比杂货店或零售店便宜得多的价格买到真正优质的商品。去年,我的手机坏了,一位中国同事在我们上午10点上班的时候给我订购了一部新的小米手机,下午1点左右到了办公室,免费送货上门。

-if you’re paying for something, the Chinese work really hard to do the job. They work quickly, they try very hard to understand your requests, they don’t argue or try to be difficult. You feel special as a customer.

-如果你花钱购买了某些产品,中国人会非常努力地让满意。他们工作迅速,他们非常努力地理解你的要求,他们不会争辩,也不会试图刁难你。作为顾客,你会觉得自己很特别。

-very international – I meet people from all over the world, with many different backgrounds, motivations, interests.

-非常国际化-我认识来自世界各地的人,他们有着不同的背景、动机和兴趣。

-extremely fast changing – buildings are going down and up constantly around the city. When shared bikes came on the scene 6 months ago, I saw 5–10 bikes one day, then a hundred the next day, then hundreds around the city within a week. Within a couple of months, you could see bikes from 4 or 5 different companies all over the city. I read there are more than 500,000 bikes in Shanghai after only 6 months since the first one landed in the street. One day, my colleague complained that she didn’t want to ride the ‘old style’ mobike, which had just come out a few months before. It’s exciting to see things change (mostly for the better) so quickly and constantly.

-变化非常快-城市周围的建筑物在不停地建建拆拆。6个月前共享单车出现的时候,我一天看到5-10辆,第二天看到100辆,一周之内就看到数百辆。几个月之内,你就能看到来自四五家不同公司的自行车遍布全城。据我所知,自第一辆共享自行车在上海落地仅6个月,上海就有超过50万辆自行车。一天,我的同事抱怨说,她不想骑几个月前才推出的“老式”摩拜单车。看到事情变化得如此之快、如此之快、如此之快、如此之快,真是令人兴奋。

-the combination of communism and capitalism is powerful – this is a big reason why things can change so extremely fast.

共产主义和资本主义的结合是强大的,这是事情变化如此之快的一个重要原因。

-although people don’t really have any say in the government’s choices or actions, Chinese people seem to be pretty ok with it. I think that it’s because the standard of living and opportunities are increasing so fast – why complain when your life gets better and better everyday?

-虽然人们对政府的选择和行动没有真正的发言权,但中国人似乎对此相当满意。我认为这是因为生活水平和机会增长如此之快——当你的生活变得越来越好时,为什么还要抱怨呢?

-clean and organized – for a city the size of Shanghai, it’s really impressive to see how clean and organized it is. Nice parks around the city with amazing landscaping, clean and wide sidewalks, bike/scooter dedicated lanes on the streets. The public bathrooms are much better than you’d expect.

-干净整洁-对于像上海这样的城市来说,看到它如此干净整洁真是令人印象深刻。城市周围有漂亮的公园,令人惊叹的景观,干净宽阔的人行道,自行车/小型摩托车专用车道。公共浴室比你想象的要好得多。

You certainly don’t feel the history or old Chinese culture as much in Shanghai, but there are plenty of places in China you can experience it. Also, the more Chinese you can speak and read, your life becomes much easier and more fun in China!

在上海你当然感受不到中国的历史和古老文化,但在中国有很多地方你可以体验到。而且,你能说的和能读的中文越多,你在中国的生活就会变得更容易、更有趣!
