Gentlemen, in which city in the world would you live, if you were able to live there?

In my case, I would say Hong Kong. It's vibrant culture, people and it's design and architecture are wonderful.

That's not the way I remember it.

When were you there?
What is your experience with life in Hong Kong?

2010.

Don't mistake me, I liked it and sure there's some wonderful views, but that's only if you can get to the right spots, which many of them you can't under normal circumstances. If you were to go to China I'd recommend Beijing, the city is much nicer in my opinion, yes it's overcrowded but I can deal with that and I actually got a better vibe from the people there than I did in Hong Kong.

I think my main gripe with Hong Kong though was it's a little too westernised for my preference.

Now, to throw in my hat as to where I would live if I had to move; Aguas Calientas followed by Beijing, there may be other places I idolise but I'd never commit until I've been there.

Gentlemen, truth be told, the most juicy place that I've ever resided inside was the pussy of a woman called clementine. Round and red, ripe and juicy, this woman's pussy was delectable.

I understand your stance on HK being too westernised, but one should take into consideration that HK was under British rule for some 150 years.

You have to consider that this thread is about cities one would like to live in, and not about sharing one's sexual experiences.

I understand your sentiment and I don't begrudge the westernisation, I expected it, but I will admit it was more than I expected. After spending several weeks in rural China the culture shock is probably greater than if I had headed there straight from the UK.

Well, it is quite ungrateful to compare rural China with city part of Hong Kong, although, up to some degree, you could compare rural China with villages in New Territories.

I quite enjoyed living in Tokyo and Osaka during my time abroad. Alas, which I prefer is a hard choice.

What were your least-liked factors and favorite things? I have heard mixed opinions of Japan from Westerners who have had prolonged visits or lived there.

I would have to go with Japan. The enticing culture, both ancient and modern. The beautiful colors, and countryside. Japan would definitely be my choice. Or maybe I'm just a weeaboo

I've been living in Shenzhen, China, for almost 3 years now, and there's nowhere I'd rather be right now.
Most people here are 23-30 years old, they come from all over China (there's a bunch of expats as well), there's monday to sunday nightlife, parks, shopping, electronics, factories. All in all it's an awesome place.

I live about 20 minutes away from the HK border on foot, and I have to say I find Shenzhen to be way more pleasant. HK seems like it can be nice, if you've got millions in the bank. Otherwise I found it to be unwelcoming, compared to Shenzhen.

How were you able to live there? I'm curious because I'd like to live in a country in Europe butI've been told everywhere that living in another country is a bit of an onerous process.

Getting an international transfer as part of a job is the easiest way. Winging it and moving with the intent of starting anew is tantamount to suicide.

There's plenty of schemes for moving abroad. Most people elect to go over backpacking, find a job and get a work visa while they're there so they can stay as long as possible. You can also jump on one of numerous government schemes including the good ol' exchange program (basically the US will send 5000 workers per year to X and in return receive 5000 workers from X as part of a 'cultural exchange' program, you can normally stay 5 years but you have to organise everything yourself, they only supply the visas).

If you're American you can live up to 90 days in most EU countries. If you want to stay there permanently than yeah its difficult like in every country in the would.
If you think you'd like to live in one place go there for the 90 day and find a job in a hostel, that way you get to stay for free there and get the feel of the city without spending a lot of money renting. I've done it several times, it's pretty cool.

Hmm, good question. I would dream of living in Tokyo, probably. I really like Japan and I want to move there for a while someday. Only I don't know what to do with the job.

Well, you can find something remote. For example, here https://ca.jooble.org/jobs-data-entry-no-experience-work-from-home there are many remote work options. Try to find something that will allow you to travel from time to time or not require being in the same city. By the way, Tokyo is very cool, I also love Japan very much.

Cuba

Once they opened up to America the charm went away. Used to be you'd go across and they'd take tips in the form of goods (communism = no personal wealth), now they want US$.

Also; Starbucks.
