    I second those thoughts. Let me add, when i am in china, if i need to see a Doctor Clinic, it is covered by my Wife’s health card. No questions asked. I really like the freedom, which doesn’t exist in Canada now.

    Online shopping and paying with the phone are definitely very convenient here!
    I can’t even give specific reasons as to why China. It just feels like home now.

    I currently live in romania, i want to move to france. but damn, china sounds SOOO good, even though i hear bad things about it now and then.
    perhaps, if i manage to learn a least some basic mandarin, i could visit it..

    My daughter and son-in-law are currently on a month-long trip around China. It sounds like they’re enjoying the authentic Chinese food you can’t get in the US.

    Today Amazon is in the news for buying Whole Foods. Whole Foods has a home delivery service for groceries which Amazon plans to expand.

    When my husband was sick in China, he appreciated the cooperation between Chinese and Western medicine in the same clinic.

    Your #6 reminded me of living in the Philippines. I think the ease of getting things repaired (at least in the Philippines) was related to poverty. People there would perform services for a low price.

    Both #1 and #6 are largely made possible by a large urban underclass, not something to be terribly proud of imo…
    Barcode scanning mobile payment is super neat though, there was once I forget to pay at a bar in a foreign country, I had to phone for account details [facepalm].
