In this episode of the Millennials in China podcast we drink some Tsingtao and imported Kirin while discussing life in China’s cities, and explain how it’s like to live in China as expats/foreigners. Depending on where you are in China (1st tier city like Shanghai vs 3rd tier cities and villages), the differences you face in everyday life can be massive!

Show Notes:

  • Life in China as a foreigner and how you no longer have the same “celebrity factor” as 5-10 years ago.
  • General comparisons between China’s 1st tier international cities like Shanghai and the smaller cities and “real China.”
  • Your food, drink, and nightlife choices in 1st tier cities vs smaller cities.
  • Cost of living differences between 1st tier cities and smaller cities - massive! You can probably live in a 3rd tier Chinese city for half the budget of Shanghai.
  • Attitudes from Chinese locals. Are they curious about foreigners? Hostile? DGAF?
  • Safety, transportation, and other logistic stuff for living in China’s cities!
  • Expat communities in China and the expat lifestyles that you can’t live without - sports, recreation, and staying fit.
