外国人:你对中国怎么看,你去过中国吗

What is your opinion of China? Have you ever been to China?

你对中国怎么看?你去过中国吗?

以下是Quora读者的评论:

Marc Bohets, Telecom Engineer

I was in China in March of this year, and I think it is a beautiful and fantastic country.

The people are very friendly, including customs and police officers, and even at night I never felt unsafe.

We went to a few big cities and to some very small mountain villages, just a pity we did not go to Shenzhen, I might return there later.

The hotels and the food were very good.

The cities were very clean, there are cleaners everywhere, and on the high speed trains, there is a cleaning team riding along, and every 30 minutes or so they passed through our wagon.

今年3月我去了中国,那是一个美丽而神奇的国家。

当地的人们非常友好,海关和警察也是如此,即便在晚上我也觉得很有安全感。

我们游览了几个大城市和一些很小的山村,很可惜我们没有去深圳,以后我可能还会再去一次的。

酒店和食物都很不错。

城市非常干净,到处都有清洁工,高铁上还有一个清洁队,每30分钟左右他们就会经过我们的车厢。

I am a Telecom engineer and tech enthusiast, and what struck me is that in a small mountain village, they had Fiber based internet and TV, something that the telecom providers in Belgium are only planning to roll out somewhere between now and 10 years. Also 5G is already deployed in some parts of China.

In one of the airports, I think it was Beijing, there were info docks that helped you find the right gate, you had to stand in front of a camera, and the system displays a map of the airport, with directions on how to walk to your gate, face recognition in action.

我是一名电信工程师和技术爱好者,让我吃惊的是,小山村里也有光纤互联网和电视,而比利时的电信供应商还只是计划在最近10年内铺设该设备。另外,5G已经在中国的某些地区落地了。

在某个机场,我没记错的话应该是北京,有信息港可以帮你找到对应的登机口,你只需站在摄像机前,系统就会显示机场的地图以及如何前往登机口的方向,运用的就是人脸识别的技术。

It is amazing to see how efficiently the Chinese go nment has worked to get the country out of poverty in a relatively short time, and it is shameful to see how the US is trying to sabotage this process because they are afraid China will soon be more advanced than them.

I met a Belgian person who lives there for 10 years now, and for his work he has to travel around in China a lot, he told me he was amazed how fast things evolve in China.

They have these ambitious 5 year plans, which they effectively realize instead of talking about them in parliament.

In Belgium they are discussing plans for a big highway improvement around Antwerp for more than 20 years now …. whereas in China they effectively build about 20 of these each year.

看到中国如此高效地努力,让国家在较短的时间摆脱贫困,是非常令人震惊的事。回头看看美国,因为惧怕中国会快速赶超自己,千方百计地为中国设计障碍,真是令人汗颜呀。

我遇到了一个比利时人,他在中国生活了10年,因为工作原因,他经常去中国各地旅行。他告诉我,他对中国的发展速度感到目瞪口呆。

他们制订了雄心勃勃的五年计划,他们高效地实现了这些计划,而不是只在议会中说说而已。

在比利时,人们为了在安特卫普附近修建一条大型公路讨论了20多年了。而在中国,他们每年都能建造20条这样的公路。

 

Carl Johnson,

I grew up in New Hampshire USA. I currently live in China and have been here since 2011. I will make this short as I have plenty of posts on Quora about China. Short answer, China is a much much better place than what we think!

If you have never been to China You should come to visit. It is the ONLY way you will know what China truly is. I can say with certainty that if you have gotten your information about China by watching the news, reading a book or some articles on the internet then your perceptions of China are incorrect. Take a visit and your whole world View may change.

Of course I am just some guy on the internet. Who knows if I am paid by the US go nment or paid by the Chinese go nment. But here is the thing….you can get on a plane a go see for yourself, if you do you may learn more about the Western media than about China!

我在美国新罕布什尔州长大。我现在住在中国,从2011年起就一直住在这里了。我就长话短说吧,因为我在Quora上有很多关于中国的帖子。简而言之,中国比我们想象的要好得多!

如果你从未去过中国,你应该来参观一下。这是你了解中国的唯一途径。我可以肯定地说,如果你只是通过看新闻、读书或浏览网上的一些文章获得有关中国的信息,那么你对中国的看法是不正确的。去中国看看吧,你的整个世界观可能会发生改变。

当然,我只是网上的无名小卒。谁知道我是不是美国政府或者中国的五毛党呢。但事情是这样的……你可以自己坐飞机去中国看一看,如果你这么做了,你可能会了解到更多关于西方媒体的事,而不是中国!

 

Yp Makhija, M.D at .Mak Medicals Pvt

Travelled on many occasions for buying machinery - from 2007 onwards. Since I was a customer - was always picked from airports by English speaking translator. All through my stay was looked after by the senior exec. Or by the owners - they always took me /us (my son accompnnied) to lunches/dinners.and most of the time dropped at the airport's.

But at times my son and me we're on our own - -language was a barrier . In big cities -we could find youngsters easily who spoke English but smaller cities was more difficult -but manageable neverthless. Ordering food in restaurant in our own was a big time issue.

自2007年起,我曾多次前往中国购买机器。因为我是顾客—降落机场后总有英语翻译来接我。在我逗留期间,高级主管一直照顾我,业主们也是如此-他们总是带上我/我们(我的儿子陪我去的)共进午餐/晚餐。大部分时间都是在机场度过。

但有时,我和儿子只能靠自己——语言是个主要的障碍。在大城市——我们可以很容易地找到会说英语的年轻人,但在小城市就比较困难了——但问题不算太大。我们在餐厅点餐是一个大问题。

People are very polite, helpful ,neatly dressed. Always smiling and courteous. Shopping is a pleasure -especially in Beijing. (Well everywhere actually )

Infrastructure is SUPERB -no kidding.

Cleanliness is everywhere -except some rear lanes -normally not seen

People are looked after by the go nment - all feel secured -A GREAT PLUS.

Taxies don't cheat - except in BEIJING - that city I could not understand- why taxi is haggling instead of going by meter.

人们很有礼貌,乐于助人,穿着整洁,总是面带微笑,彬彬有礼。购物是一种乐趣——尤其是在北京。(实际上各地都是如此)

基础设施是一流水平——我没有开玩笑。

到处都干净整洁——除了一些后巷以外——通常人们也看不到。

政府关心百姓——所有人都很有安全感——这是一个很大的加分项。

出租车不会作假——除了在北京——那个我无法理解的城市——为什么出租车不按计价器打表。

Overall - A WONDERFUL COUNTYR TO GO TO

Oh yes food in normal restaurants is very reasonably priced. High end restaurants apart.

Hotels are neat and clean and Tariff is EXTREMLY REASONABLE

A THREE STAR KIND IS FOR Rs.2100 for a double bed with break fast for two. Avaiable in all big and small cities.

总的来说,这是一个值得去的好地方。

哦,还有,普通餐馆的食物价格非常合理。高档餐厅除外。

酒店干净整洁,房费也非常合理。

三星酒店的双人床房间,含双人早餐才2100卢比。所有大小城市都有。

 

Allen Allington, former Career Counselor and 50 years of world traveling.

I have spent more than 800 days in China and like it a lot. My wife owns homes there so we spend time hanging out with her friends and foreign teachers working there that I have met.

However, our home is about 200 miles west of Shanghai so winters are cold (snow) and summers are hot and humid (100Fnot unusual) so we mostly spend spring and fall there. We love Michigan in the summer and Laos, Cambodia or Mexico to hide from the winter cold.

I have found the Chinese people to be kind, generous, welcoming and optimistic. The cities are vibrant and filled with nice parks for relaxing.

I have traveled from Beijing in the north to Kunming in the southwest, Shanghai and Guangzhou and more. The buses are cheap and the high speed railway is fast and dependable.

My only disappointment is: not a lot of China is old, much of the ancient has been torn down and replaced with new buildings looking like the old one which stood there. It’s practical, the new building are safer and offer updated bathrooms and such but it’s nice to see and walk through antiquities.

我在中国呆了800多天,我非常喜欢那里。我妻子在那里有家庭,我们经常和她的朋友以及我遇到的在中国工作的外教一起玩。

不过我们的家在上海以西200英里,所以冬天很冷(下雪),夏天又热又湿(高达100华氏度也不奇怪),所以我们大多数时间会在春秋两季呆在那里。我们喜欢夏天的密歇根,喜欢冬天的老挝、柬埔寨和墨西哥。

我发现中国人善良、慷慨、好客和乐观。城市充满活力,到处都是令人放松的公园。

我去过很多地方旅游,足迹遍布北方的北京、西南的昆明、上海和广州等地。坐公共汽车很便宜,高铁又快又可靠。

我唯一觉得失望的是:中国没有多少古老建筑,很多老房子都被拆除了,取而代之的是有着老建筑外观的新建筑。这很务实,新建筑更为安全,配备了现代卫生间,但我更喜欢能看到老建筑,在老建筑中散步。(图)

Graham Paterson, Taught English at the Xiaogan University

Presumably, this question is asked by a foreigner who is interested in going to China. On that assumption, I can offer my personal comments. Spending a year at the Xiaogan University in the Hubei Province was one of the best experiences I have had in my life. I made many friends while there, and I am still in contact with some of them 13 years later. I returned to the Uni last year for a visit after a cruise down the Yangtze. I also met up with the publisher of my books when in Beijing and later, with Mr Zhu and his family, who now teaches Art at the Wuhan Uni.

Both before and after going to China, I became engrossed in modern Chinese history, particularly covering the early part of the 20th century. As background, you couldn’t do much better then read the 5 volumes of Han Suyin’s autobiography/history of that period, particularly her first volume, “The Crippled Tree.”

China is a remarkable country in every way, but you need to get out of the big cities and explore the beauty and uniqueness that is the real China. I cannot speak more highly of the hospitality and genuine welcome I have experienced from the many Chinese people I have met and come to know as lifelong friends

这个问题大概是一个想去中国的外国人问的吧。基于这个假设,我可以发表一下我个人的看法。在湖北孝感大学度过的那一年是我人生中最美好的经历之一。我在那里交了很多朋友,13年后我仍然和他们中的一些人保持联系。去年我乘船游览长江后回到大学参观。在北京时,我还与我的书的出版商见了面,后来又与朱先生和他的家人见了面,他现在在武汉大学教授艺术课程。

在去中国前后,我对中国近代史很感兴趣,特别是20世纪初的中国近代史。我先说一句,没有比阅读5卷韩素音的自传/那个时期的历史更好的做法了,特别是她的第一卷,“歪脖子树。”

中国在各方面都是一个了不起的国家,但你需要走出大城市,去探索中国真正的美丽和独特之处。我所遇到和认识的许多中国人都是我一辈子的朋友,他们的热情好客和真诚以待是我无法用言语来形容的。

Hannah Watson, studied at The High School Experience (2020)

Yes, for two weeks at age six.

I went there to adopt my little sister. My parents took me with them so we could start our new family together, which I really appreciate.

I only remember little bits, like the Great Wall, going to a store and getting a free pearl (I still have the pearl), having to ride in the front seat of a taxi in Beijing and on a translator’s lap, trying some tea, using the picture menu at McDonald’s, and using a squat toilet. My mom says I wandered off on the Great Wall and caused her to have a heart attack. Sorry, Mom!

It’s a very different country but I would love to go back. Seeing the Forbidden City again would be great since I don’t remember it at all.

是的,我六岁的时候在中国住过两周时间。

当时我是去中国领养我妹妹的。我的父母带我一起去了那儿,这样我们就可以一起组建我们的新家庭,我真的很感激。

我只记得一些画面,比如长城,逛商店并得到一颗免费的珍珠(我还保留着那颗珍珠呢),在北京搭乘出租车时只能坐在前排副驾驶位上翻译的大腿上,尝过一些茶,在麦当劳用图片菜单点餐,使用蹲式厕所。我妈妈说我在长城上走丢了,导致她心脏病都发作了。对不起,妈妈!

这是一个非常不同的国家,但我很想回去看看。如果能再去参观一次故宫就太好了,我已经没什么印象了。

 

Larry Chao, retiree in LA

Just got my air tickets for China, so excited, can't wait to leave dirty ,dangerous, downtown Los Angeles .Looking forward to seeing modern, beautiful, super safe Shanghai, Hangzhou and Beijing. No more dangerous guys around you smoking marijuana, no more watching out on the streets to avoid possible dangers. I can again walk at night on nice streets in Chinese cities

我刚买到去中国的机票,很兴奋,迫不及待地想要离开肮脏、危险的洛杉矶市区,非常期待看到现代、美丽、超级安全的上海、杭州和北京。不再有危险的家伙在你身边抽大麻,不再在大街上小心翼翼四处观察,避开可能的危险。晚上我又可以在中国城市的漂亮街道上散步了。
