I have never experienced a culture shock in the countries i've visited thus far. Shangai is the first. It's ironical that although being a chinese, i would actually suffer a culture shock here, in another chinese land.
There's no doubt Shanghai is fast becoming a vibrant and happening city. But the people are still lacking of basic etiquette. I had to commute daily using the public bus from my sister's apartment to the city. So everyday, i witnessed the crude behaviour of the people. Their pushing and clambering up the bus. Their shouting and spitting. The young bullying the old over the seats. And eevryday, i would hear arguments on the buses i travelled on. The louder one is, the greater the chance of getting your way.
And as i walked the streets in the city, lost and seeking help, i only received rude stares and cold silent treatment. Otherwise, i practically had to run after them to hear their replies! It's totally exasperating!
The only truly enjoyable experience i had is the food. Delectable!
