Rising Chinese cities and Taiwan’s anti-Korea attitude rears its ugly head again

31 Mar

I think this is fairly obvious but it’s still good to read about it. Yes, besides Beijing and Shanghai, there are other happening cities in China. Rapid progress is being made in cities like Hangzhou and Chengdu in business, industry, travel and even conference hosting. As the article points out, China has the most number of hotels in the world at 406,480 hotel rooms, and business travel spending expected to approach US$245 billion this year. I can’t quite fathom what these numbers mean exactly, except that these are huge amounts.

For some strange reason, Taiwan has a long-running grudge against South Korea that manifests itself as envy, jealousy, bitterness, and self-righteous whines about being bullied and taken advantaged of. This Chinasmack piece shines a spotlight on a recent occurrence of anti-Korean attitudes in Taiwan, this being after Korea’s victory over Taiwan in the World Baseball Classic. Some of those signs by Taiwanese fans are really classic.
