Chinese Girls

As mentioned above, China is a country which has an extremely large population. With 1.4 billion people residing in the country, it is obvious that there shall be vast diversity in the population. Stereotyping the women of the whole country would be nothing but a gross generalization. However, it does not imply that it cannot be done.

The women of China are raised in a very different atmosphere. Chinese traditions and cultures are a stark contrast from that of the cultures of the Western world. The people of China take these cultures and traditions extremely seriously and the women are no different. They have been raised with these traditional values from childhood itself. The women are also quite spiritual, religion in China is something which is quite difficult for westerners to understand but all one needs to know that it is a blend of Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism. This does not interfere in their daily lives, much like certain other countries in the Middle East, where women are oppressed by their roles defined by religion and enforced by society. The women are undoubtedly judged by the elders in society, but with the onset of a more global, care-free, live life on your own terms approach, things are rapidly changing.

The women who reside in some of the biggest cities in China are very much in sync with global culture, though the internet services are severely censored, women do have means to read about global trends, movements, and happenings. The average woman living in a major city in China is quite empowered and unafraid to voice her opinion. On the other hand, the women in China who are living in smaller towns and villages are not as empowered as their city counterparts and they do lack confidence and are dependent on their families in many ways. Chinese culture is such that most of the women in the country are not completely independent. Familial values yet hold a lot of importance in Chinese culture and one cannot but help to notice the constant influence of other male family members in a woman’s life irrespective of her age and status.

If we begin to stereotype the women of the country of China, on the basis of their appearances, you shall see a similar trend. Most of the women of China have stereotypical Asian features, this would include the short stature, with most women ranging between 152 - 165 cm (5′0″ - 5′4″). Women also have a pale complexion and round-ovular faces. They have small eyes, coloured eyes with delicate facial features. The women are known for their long straight hair which are usually of naturally occurring darker shades. The women have petite figures and small to medium sized breasts and buttocks.

Over the past few decades, China has seen tremendous growth as a country and this can be seen in their education system as well, where the number of women graduating from colleges has increased exponentially. The country at present is home to some of the most prestigious universities across the globe and women who hail from the bigger cities in China prefer attaining a bachelor’s degree post their high school graduation. The path might not be as easy for the women in the smaller towns of China but with changing times, the literacy rate among such women is also on the rise. Most of the women after graduating do opt to apply for a job and add to their family’s income, while some women earn enough to gain financial independence, some yet don’t make the cut. Overall, with a large population, the competition is cut-throat and most of the women are focussed and goal-oriented. Despite the global culture penetrating the censored boundaries of the country of China, most of the women are oblivious to various aspects of foreign cultures and the biggest obstacle of them all is language, as most women only speak Mandarin and cannot communicate in English.

RatingLooks Looks of girls: 3 / 5

How to Pick Up Girls

Picking up girls in the country of China is NOT going to be an easy task. The culture of the country is such that the women are shy and not very interactive. They prefer to mingle with local people and any kind of interaction with Western men is not a common occurrence because most of the women tend to have preconceived notions about them. To top the already existing issues, most of the women are not familiar with English and communication is a massive barrier. Therefore, to pick up girls, men need to polish their Mandarin skills, try and meet women who have some kind of global exposure, and most importantly men need to enlist appropriate local help to socialize with women.

RatingPickup Chance of picking up: 2.5 / 5

The chance of picking up horny girls in the country of China is pretty average.

Tips for Daytime

The daytime game in the country of China is definitely not promising. The women in some of the major cities of the country are rushing in dense crowds to get to their workplaces, their places of education, or even stepping out to get their daily chores done. Therefore, hitting on such women while the sun shines brightly shall not yield too many results. In the smaller cities, the day of an average woman does pan out at a more leisurely pace and you could get lucky but at the bigger cities in the country, there is very little chance. To add to your woes, most of the women are shy during the daytime and do not reciprocate well to advances of strange foreign men. Not to forget, their communication skills in English are often pathetic. Therefore, if you wish to approach women successfully during the daytime, read on to find out more.

How to approach the girls?

If you wish to approach women during the daytime in the country of China, you shall have to work extremely hard. Firstly, your success depends upon the status of the woman i.e. you shall have to take into account the type of woman you want and the type of woman she is if she is rich, or is she available? Or is she willing to talk to you? Once you have the answers to some of these questions, you can try to approach her. As a foreign man you already have the advantage as women are curious to date foreigners, but then again they are shy to talk as they cannot speak in English at most times. Hence, before approaching the women, dress up well, work on your Mandarin and break the ice with a simple compliment. Then as the conversation proceeds ask her name, perhaps her phone number, and if you feel things are moving forward positively, ask her out for a drink or for coffee. The culture in China isn’t one where men directly approach women on the street, but you can play that to your advantage and approach her with confidence while being soft-spoken, humble, and charming throughout the conversation.

RatingDaytime Chance of picking up at daytime: 2 / 5

Chances of picking up women at daytime are strictly below average and one must have a plan before approaching any girl. This shall ensure that you do not run of things to speak about mid-way nor shall you get shot down at the earliest. The rating given above justifies the point being made here.

Best Places to Meet Girls

The country of China has various places to meet horny girls throughout the day, but then again, most of this depends upon the city you are in. As mentioned earlier, women in the country of China aren’t really friendly during the daytime and they shall most certainly not entertain any flirtatious advances from strange male tourists. Hence, it is of utmost importance that you visit appropriate places to meet girls who shall respond positively to you. Given below is a list of the best places to be at, in some of the biggest cities in the country of China:

Wangfujing pedestrian street in Beijing

The above-mentioned places are some of the best shopping places and malls across the four biggest cities in China. These places are densely populated with Chinese beauties during the daytime and if a tourist wants to hit on them, there is hardly any better place while the sun still shines brightly.

Tips for Nighttime

Like most of the countries across the globe, in China, one can experience a better pickup game at nighttime rather than the daytime. It is at night that most of the women get free in this incredibly populous, busy, and hectic country. After they are done wrapping up their chores, they prefer putting on their best dress and stepping out for a good meal, a few drinks, and perhaps a wild night of partying with their close friends. So, if you wish to meet women in China and charm them at night, the best places to meet them are the nightclubs, the pubs, and the bars. Dress up well, brush up on your Mandarin, perhaps learn a few lines, a compliment or two, and then approach them with confidence. Make sure that you aren’t too loud or annoying. Approach them politely, be humble, and subtly compliment them. Moreover, two important points to remember would be to meet women with a group of guys as single lonely men are considered to be losers and secondly book a hotel room close to the party venue, just so that you can take her to bed quickly if she agrees.

RatingNighttime Chance of hooking up at nighttime: 3 / 5

The chances of hooking up at night time are much better than the daytime. However, it is no cakewalk, one shall have to be at their charming best and bring their A-game to make shy Chinese girls warm up to them.

Mature Ladies and Cougars

In the country of China, the chances of picking up younger women depend upon the city you plan to visit as the mindset of the girls depends upon their exposure to the ways of the world and immediate surroundings. While on the other hand if you wish to pick up mature ladies in the country of China, your chances shall remain to be pretty low across the entire country. This is because most of the women who are above the age of 40 shall have been brought up in an extremely conservative atmosphere. In Chinese culture, women are supposed to conduct themselves with dignity at all times. They are supposed to be ideal role models for the younger generations. Most of the mature ladies are expected to be ideal daughters, faithful wives, and perfect mothers. Therefore, with such roles that are defined for them by society, they shall seldom stray away and hook up with foreign men. If hooking up with mature women is a must, then a tourist could try interacting with women on online dating apps and websites or even try visiting some of the upscale restaurants, bars, and cafes which are frequented by mature women as you might get lucky with a forty-plus woman who is either divorced, widowed, or luckily-yet-single.

We cover Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan in separate articles. From the traveller's practical point of view, they are distinct as each issues its own visas, currency and so on.

Politically, Hong Kong and Macau are Special Administrative Regions, part of China but with capitalist economies and distinct political systems. The slogan is "One country, two systems".

Taiwan is a special case. At the end of the civil war in 1949, the Communists held most of China and the defeated Nationalists (the former government of China) held only Taiwan and a few islands off the Fujian coast. Taiwan has had a separate government for over 60 years and is completely independent in every practical sense although it is not now represented at the United Nations and its sovereignty only recognized by a very few small nations. Beijing strongly rejects any international recognition of Taiwanese autonomy and both the Chinese and Taiwanese governments support eventual reunification in principle.

Weed and Drugs

The use of drugs is prevalent in some of the big cities in China. Most of this involves recreational drugs such as weed. Stronger substances are also available, but tourists are recommended to stay away from narcotics as they are illegal in China and if caught, the penalty is quite rigid.

Health, Fitness, Gyms and Massage

Stay Safe

China is a huge country that shows a huge regional difference in crime rates but in general, it poses no more risk than most Western countries.

Violent crime is very rare, though scams and petty crimes are common, so it pays to be prudent and secure your valuables properly. As with anywhere else, a little commonsense goes a long way.
