2. Overwhelming Cultural Scene

I mean that in the most positive way. Culture is appropriate, preserved, and protected in this part of the world. Museums and libraries are everywhere. Some people are just afraid of visiting China because of the communist label. But truth to be told, it’s not a scary country to live in. Sure it may sound foreign to many travelers because of the language (Mandarin Chinese) they speak but generally, you can get by. My husband has lived here for 10 years and he only knows xiexie (thank you), dui (you’re right!) and meiyou (none). And he can’t speak those words well either!
