As a foreigner, when you first came to China, what surprised you most?
Most Helpful Guy
For me it was the amount of garbage and the smells. I was in Baoding. I found Beijing to be much cleaner. I also expected to be hated as an American. I found most Chinese to be very friendly. I was also very surprised that I could get around Beijing and most places knowing almost no Chinese just on the friendliness of others. The bullet trains were really cool. I liked the "D" trains a lot. We don't have them in the US.0
