Top 5 busiest cities in China

NO.5 Shanghai

Comments: because of the "international metropolis" slogan, Shanghai people constantly strive to work. the people from the world are working in Shanghai; First is work, consumption is the second, they also smart in terms of active investment and consumption of luxury goods. But the high prices of house are easy to make their profit gone.

TV time: less, less than the Internet and phone calls, more than reading newspapers and watching fun.

Fast food restaurant: more; this is in direct proportion with the growth of convenience stores in the city. And the convenience store coverage has reached three steps a store, five steps a shop.( like 7-11, Family-mart)

Walking speed: fast; almost no people slow, only visitors and passers-by.

Alcohol: low; the city is the pursuit of elegant rather than intoxicated. The most popular night life is in the new world, but the foreign flavor is more than the taste of wine.

Schedule: a conservative schedule, working first.

Work time shopping popularity:  High; except Pudong, there is basically the city's work room. I am afraid only a heavy rain or SARS can drive away the crowd people on Nanjing Road.

Shanghai people have 2 concepts of marriage, conservative and worship foreign culture, some are still care about Shanghai Hukou, birth place; A man go to buy food at 4:00am is a classic image of a good man in Shanghai.

NO.4 Guangzhou

Comments: small changes, big changes bring more jobs in Guangzhou. With developed real estate, make people can stand on tiptoe to reach your own house property; You can feel free, no one cares about your privacy, each person's life is very busy; You are not free, because of work and a traffic jam, and feel trouble to be the boss or be a freelance.

TV time: less; many people have to work overtime, in addition Guangzhou print media is developed and very cheap, also easy to buy, you can read the newspaper everytime easily.

Fast food restaurants: is basically for the two extremes of community support services: the first is vast village population; the second is the white-collar office community.

TV time: not much, because the night life is rich; Some love watching TV, 1. Because Hongkong channels' attractive, 2. Want to learn Cantonese 3. Would like to forget the reality of pressure.

Fast food restaurant: more, take away is "invasion" almost all the office. Developed into an online to establish a "Shenzhen fast food nets", and even fast-food restaurants to proceed with the British authorities BSI ISO9002 and domestic health and environmental authority of ISO14000 environmental protection certification, to fight for the first brand of fast food distribution in Shenzhen.

Walking speed: always proud to be fast, but now it is slow, because it is too crowded. People are angry about the others crowded on the road, and blocked their way to walk fast.
