Well I lived in shanghai for 2.5 years as an expatriate, for my dad's job.
i went to the shanghai American school, and that was all like foreign kids. but the city is so crowded, and so many cars and so much traffic. beijing, shanghai, hong kong, and the other big cities are quite modern with some "old towns", but there are also rural areas towards the center of the country.
the difference between the ways expats live and the way the nationals live is very different. I lived in a gated compound where there were guards guarding 24/7, and houses were very modern. there are many compounds like that, my favorite nearby me was a racquet club so they had a pool, tennis courts, spa, etc.
and we did have plumbing.. we didn't live in huts.. we had roads haha. so many elevated highways too. actually, something like 20% of the world's cranes are in china right now because they are building so much.
it really was a better life than living in the USA, at least for expatriates.
feel free to ask anything else!0
