There’s a bit of a “living in the future” feeling in China.
We resided in a few big Chinese cities and traveled to several others throughout the years, from skylines to QR codes the impression is there.
Many of the available techs were started or improved by the facilities WeChat and Alipay brought to the market. These are apps comprising a series of services in one, soon a whole video is coming on this subject to clarify it further.
The 24 hours convenience stores are handy for the metropolitan citizens who find themselves needing all sorts of things often on noncommercial times.
It is also cool to do things differently, something that hasn’t change for centuries and all the sudden a shift happens. Everyone likes to try new things, there’s this extra attractiveness to it.
