        I love how 80's China felt. This is right outside the Shanghai airport, but it still felt nice. Other airports in Asia produce a similar sensation for me.

However, I did meet a guy in Canada that went in the 80's. He was a retired surgeon and said the healthcare community loved Canada because of their contributions towards penicillin.

      >how are girls in China?
      Less westernized than Japanese or Korean women and generally more conservative as is the culture on the whole. Chinese girls tend to be sheltered due to gender segregation in the school system, total absence of sex ed in the curriculum, illegality of porn, and the prudishness of state censors. Hooking up isn't normalized like in the west. Teachers actively interfere with students dating each other. It's not unusual for a girl to marry her first boyfriend which normally happens at a relatively young age (like right after college).

          You're right that Chinese girls tend to be naive and sheltered. By the end of undergrad they largely seem like 6th grade American girls personality wise. BUT don't let this delude you into thinking they are virginal and don't hook up. It would be wrong to say they have 'hook up culture' in any way directly resembling the situation in the US but they simply have a totally alien set of sexual mores which are not remotely 'trad' or prudish. There is no discourse around 'normalizing' hookups. Guys generally want low body count or virgin girls but also accept the reality that it is in fact normal, currently, for everyone to spend their 20s fricking around.

          Chinese frick like rabbits, mostly starting in college, sometimes in high school (even with the discouragement of relationships). Schools are not gender segregated. No one would find it odd for a girl to marry her first boyfriend but it's not the norm to do so either. Porn is banned but not inaccessible and regardless Chinese men are sex crazed and want things by default that we'd consider odd (like rimming). Chinese girls are wonderful, they make wonderful gf's, wives, LBFM's, whatever you want them to be. But don't harbor any illusion that they are prudish and traditional as a people generally.

          None of this is mutually exclusive with the post you're responding to. I said Chinese girls tend to be sheltered, I never claimed that made them models of chastity.
          >Well written but completely wrong
          I get that this is the internet but your difference of opinion means less to me than you might realize. You don't need to brandish your familiarity with Chinese mens' rimming habits to prove that you're a subject matter expert.

            Bringing up segregated schools (that don't exist), illegal porn, etc, and following that up with 'hooking up isnt normalized' seems like you are clearly implying chastity.

              I didn't mean to imply that they're segregated like a Catholic girls school but relative to, say, American public schools they are. e.g., coed dorms are not a thing in Chinese universities at least from what I've seen, it's also not unusual for classes to be all male or all female.
              >following that up with 'hooking up isnt normalized' seems like you are clearly implying chastity.
              The point I was trying to make is that the culture is more conservative than Japan and South Korea; Chinese women tend to be more sheltered/naive as a consequence. That doesn't mean the women are necessarily more chaste, only that there are stronger social pressures that discourage western style sexual liberalism.

                Fair enough on the segregated schools. But can you see how I'm not really following
                >I'm not saying theyre more chaste
                >Im just saying theyr'e less sexually liberal

                Anyway even if we ignore the word 'chaste' entirely (since I'm the one who brought it up) I don't think your point is true. I think the Chinese are extremely sexually liberal just not in a way that is directly comparable to what we have in the west. There are still social pressures but they push more FOR marriage than they do against 'casual' sex. The hyper promiscuity (with no attendant social consequences) you can observe in any club/bar area, and the ubiquity of prostitution are both suggest a high degree of sexual liberalism IMO

                Prostitution was ubiquitous in Victorian England yet it's not typically thought of as a sexually liberal society. The fact that prostitution is so ubiquitous is part of the reason they don't have hookup culture because it provides an outlet that renders all of the mating games that are so common in the modern west unneccessary. Going to wild drunken parties to get laid or farming phone numbers isn't the norm there, partly because Chinese men tend to be on the timid side but also because if they don't have a girlfriend it's easier to visit a prostitute. You also don't see much of the phenomenon of serial relationships that western women engage in where they sleep with a slew of men from their teens to early 30s and then decide to settle down and marry a nice guy because their biological clock is ticking. In general, Chinese women begin dating later but tend to marry and have children sooner in life because of social pressures that are absent in the west. Yet Chinese women are not chaste or prudish, if anything they're easier because they're less experienced and haven't been desensitized by men constantly trying to pick them up or by a highly sexualized culture around them.

                Right but I'm not talking about Victorian England. I am saying in this case, in the Chinese context, it's indicative of looser sexual mores. China as a whole has always been much looser sexually than the West between concubinage and prostitution. Prostitution does provide an outlet to avoid the horrific dating market conditions of America but it doesn't make casual, non-p4p sex less common.

                >Going to drunken parties to get laid...
                That's what I'm saying. Chinese girls don't go to frat parties because they don't exist there. But a sizable segment of youth start going heavy to bars and clubs from age 18 and frick around like crazy. And Chinese men farm phone numbers (well, Wechat's) plenty, people approach each other in public all the time.

                >Serial relationships
                Agree. They don't do this. But I hold that outside of committed relationships they are quite promiscuous.

          I'm thinking of going back there to find a tradwife but the problem is in my mind, you cannot get them to leave and be an individual - live in a beach house, be early retired etc. The whole of China just seems to be one industrial, consumer mega sphere with little natural nature (not being cemented over with walk ways). Do you understand my slightly rambling concerns?

    I visited several times directly before covid and plan to go again soon. What’s changed since covid? I know a lot of places were going cashless before the pandemic and that was a pain in the ass to deal with as a foreigner without a Chinese bank account, but has that progressed into no cash accepted or anything? Have hotels become more annoying with registration or anything?

      Technically illegal not to accept cash but idk what tourists will do if they're rejected. Don't think I see ppl use cash anymore tbh. Maybe carry exchange change so you can just give it and walk away.

      Hotels require passport. Just book through trip. com since they only show ones that accept foreigners.

      Not impossible, but why would you want to? Chinese companies are not fun places to work and the job market is incredibly competitive. Six day work weeks are normal and you'll be lucky to earn as much as an ESL teacher while working 3x the hours. You'd be better off either working for a multinational or doing a low hours teaching gig for the visa while working remote.
