Hey Razqal,

I'd love to answer your questions about China, but the reality is I've only been to Shanghai so far. As I understand, Shanghai is a totally different beast compared to the rest of the ROC. Shanghai is no doubt modern, and it basically changes everyday. Imagine Taipei in the 80s. It's sort of like they are building a city from scratch. The food here is good. A lot of different continental cuisine are represented, but I do find that Shanghainese food is VERY greasy. There are a large amount of Taiwnaese restaurants here, so if I get a little sentinmental I can grab a bite of the island. Actually, the Taiwanese seem to run shit here. So many of the developments/businesses are owned by Taiwanese people. You can live a pretty good life here if you are a Formosan :) .

I really like Shanghai and I think this is due to the fact that it's very open to anyone that wants to make their ideas or talents come to fruition. It's the 21st century boom town with a plethora of opportunity.


On the other hand, the pollution here is worse than Taiwan. It's really quite sick. Shanghai is lucky that it isn't near mountains or in a valley because this place would be unliveable if it was.


edit- poor grammar

i went to mudanjiang (a city near the boarder of russia) not that long ago... and god damn... quality chicks mate! razqal, i think northern china girls are generally taller than taiwanese girls, but southerners are generally the same if not shorter. going to china really changed my whole perspective of how "pretty" this world really is. it certainly raised the bar a lot higher now! :eek: haha... that's the problem of living in a small australian city for too long...

i was in taiwan this january and i tell ya taipei especially the shopping areas like hsinyi were really festive. felt just like xmas back in the U.S. (without the chilly weather and snow - like in L.A.) which is surprising since most taiwanese arent christians and dont celebrate xmas. just goes to show xmas really is just a commercial holiday!!

Great pics! Thanks for sharing guys :) Can someone also post these in the Taipei 101 Thread under Buildings and Architecture for our friends around the world to see? I'd volunteer if no one has the time to do so, and does not object me from doing so :D
