Talk about a perfect setting for a city! Those mountains in Sichuan put anything in North America to shame.
The most famous one in Sichuan is the giant panda You can really see beautiful mountains in Sichuan and Tibet

I was just reading that there's a whole counter culture in china, called 'lying down', where younger people check out from the career escalator and live minimalist lifestyles. It'll be interesting to see if things like this catch on when people have enough income to make a minimal work life still cover all the basics of life comfortably, as I feel you can do here in the US.

Also I wonder if the current big city dwellers will retire in their mega city or if they'll head back home to smaller cities to get a more relaxing environment.

It's so cool that you have both states in your country for a quick trip! There must be endless valleys of great hiking! Harder to access than the Rockies in the US, but scenery on the next level!

I see a lot of old people in big cities, Everyone has different ideas Some people may like busy cities Some people like the quiet countryside.. In China, if you are rich, you will get more respect In China, I think the goal of most young people is to become richer In China, lazy men are shameful Women have a high demand for men If a man doesn't have a house or a car, . it's hard to find a wife Pretty women usually get married The rest are ugly women Anyway, as a man in China, it's very hard

Really speculating how extremely accurate or legitimate those exact statistics are online in the World Wide Web Internet of Computers. Only city limits or with suburbs rest of metropolitan area? Can stay quite conflicting stubbornly obscure.

Looks like Chengdu or Chongqing are at among equal ranks with Seoul South Korea, Istanbul Turkey, Shanghai China, Delhi India.

Seoul isn't really that overwhelming filled with crowds constantly. Usually, able to get a satisfying break very often. Fortunately, Seoul is Decentralized enough within the concept on Downtown. I am sure some Chinese, Indian cities, even one in Egypt, Turkey reach even further massive crowds, congestion, hyper density among regular pedestrians.

I was in the city 15 years ago, and that is a perfect description of the place, however the same could be said for many Chinese cities.

Shanghai is as flat as Dallas, ridiculously boring.

Japan has similar plans, and Tokyo metro is growing into a bigger urban sprawl every year.


The advent of mega cities has been a global trend in the past century. There's no way to stop it.

Chengdu while big like most Chinese cities have slightly inflated numbers in some cases. The reverse is also true in parts of China. Similar to how in Japan every piece of land belongs to a city, a similar rule but on a larger scale plays out in China. So you have these dense cities, that are massive population wise but low in figurative density because the cities are roughly the size of Californian Counties if not bigger in some cases. While these cities are large on paper they do not generally include other urban areas. But due to the density of many parts of “rural” China, these supersized cities likely still over count by millions due to high density rural areas (oxymoron but it ac toast exists) and “small” towns of 50,000 people. For example, this rural county is nearly as dense as suburban Atlanta- https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dayi_County
It adds 500,000 people who realistically don’t live in the city.

Outside of the port cities that blew up recently from export trade, I'd imagine a lot of the big cities in China have roots that go way back, they are where they are cause there's something special about the geography. And China has plenty of cool geography to go around.

Well here in the US the big cities have all basically stalled out growth wise post COVID, but cultures are different across the globe. Apparently WFH never really caught on in Japan. I wonder why Japanese people wouldn't want to spread out despite being incentivized to?

In fact, there are few young people in rural China Most of them are old people at home Most young people go to work in cities This is the permanent population In fact, there are many migrant population without statistics
