Almost daily on this site are criticisms of Shenzhen and its denizens They are almost uniformly overblown. While far for perfect, Shenzhen is a great city, and its citizens are generally good people. The problems discussed can be applied to almost anywhere in the world.
No matter where you are cabbies cheat you, the food is bad and overpriced, some people are rude, there are thieves and cheats, and there is an unending list of small irritations.
Like everywhere there are nice, interesting people in Shenzhen and a good supply of assholes.
I could list a few of the many criticisms and refute most of them. But in fact, similar things can be said about almost everywhere in the the world,
My point: Shut the fuck up. If you’re an unhappy and negative person you’ll be that way anyhere you live.
