Oh postoffices and banks are open 7 days a week in China. That is something I really missed when I traveled to Europe.

Actually, though, to some extent, the need for "personal space" is addressed by having a dacha, a getaway from apartment living, that's often closer to nature. And Russians seem to have a greater need for Nature, than do many Americans (I can't speak to Europeans in that regard). So they do avail themselves of Russia's wide open spaces in that way.

My home country was the U.S., but I emigrated from it twenty years ago and there's nothing I miss.

When I used to travel from where I live now I didn't miss anything. I was on vacation in other countries and didn't expect things to be the same; besides I was going back at the end of my vacation in two or three weeks.

In terms of the UK, pubs can apply for late night and even 24 hour licenses, however this is usually balanced against the local noise and disturbance.

The normal closing time is around 11pm but on weekends this is often extended, and London is currently becoming ever more 24 hour as the night tube and night overground services run at weekends alongside the night buses and ubers.

Most late night licences tend to be in large towns and cities.

As for drinking behaviour, the Brtish now drink a lot less than they used to, and there are usually different types of drinking venues ranging from high end pubs and cocktail bars to varying types of pubs.

In that case, I think Mongolia may be the champion. Huge country with only 3 million people spread across it, with half of them living in the capital.

Believe it or not, Winter.

I'm one of the few canadians who never gripes about the clear, cold days we get to live in.
Today it's -15oC outside and I'm lovin' it. I also love the clear, unpolluted air I breathe. Apart from those things, nothing.
Most places have better cities, food and more interesting cultures than Canada in my experience.
