I live in Guangzhou, China – the country’s third largest city after Beijing and Shanghai – and that got me into sharing my thoughts on why you should consider living in China. I am not Chinese; I'm here because my husband works here, but I've lived in China before, making it easier for me to adjust to the culture and daily life. The Middle Kingdom is a fascinating country of more than one billion people that leaves you with several reasons why you should consider living in China.
1. Affordable Goods (Especially Vegetables!)
The ability to stretch your hard-earned cash is my top consideration and the best reason why you should consider living in China. As a foreign student in Shanghai five years ago, I was able to make my scholarship money go a long way by shopping and cooking my own food. Visiting the local market and befriending the vendors were part of my weekly routine. At present, I still go to the market where we buy our fruits, vegetables, eggs, grains and meat. Prices are lower than what you can see in big supermarkets.
