#123 Do Beijing and Shanghai look down on each other? 北京和上海互相看不起吗?

大家好!欢迎回来MaoMi Chinese!

一说起中国,很多人就想起北京和上海。这是中国最有名的两个城市,也是中国最重要的两个城市。在很多人看来,北京人和上海人都互相看不起。看不起,意思是不尊重一个人或者一个东西。听说,一些北京人看不起上海,一些上海人也看不起北京,他们互相看不起。这是真的吗?北京和上海又有什么一样和不一样的地方呢?今天,我们一起来聊一聊北京和上海,中国最重要的两个大城市。

北京和上海都有外号。北京的外号是帝都,上海的外号是魔都。都,意思是都市,也就是大城市。北京的外号为什么叫帝都呢?因为这以前是皇帝的都市。北京有故宫,有长城,有很多和以前的皇帝有关的东西。上海的外号为什么叫魔都呢?这和英文‘modern’有关系。上海是一个国际化的都市,非常‘摩登’。又因为上海和中国很多地方都不一样,人们说上海就像一个特别的‘魔鬼’,非常吸引人。

北京和上海都有自己的特色。北京人觉得北京最好,北京有古老的文化,也是皇帝曾经住的地方,还是中国的首都。北京人也很真,说话很直接。上海人觉得上海最好,上海的经济很好。上海人也很温柔。一些北京人觉得,上海人想得太多,斤斤计较。一些上海人觉得,北京人经常忘记自己答应过的事情,和他们做生意很难。有人说,我们要和北京人做朋友,因为他们觉得朋友很重要,为了朋友可以上刀山下火海,意思是为了朋友可以做任何事情。我们要和上海人做生意,因为上海人很冷静,总是能做出最好的决定,赚最多的钱。

其实,北京和上海都是独一无二的城市。独一无二,意思是最特别的。中国不能少了北京,也不能少了上海。北京是中国的政治中心和文化中心。上海是中国的经济中心。它们对于中国都特别重要。虽然它们有一些不同,但是它们有更多相似的地方。第一,它们都有很多人,两个城市的人口都超过了两千万。这两个城市都吸引了很多年轻人。第二,北京人和上海人的工资平均都很高。这也是这两个城市吸引了很多年轻人的原因。第三,北京和上海的房子都很贵。虽然很多年轻人来这两个城市,但是能在北京或者上海买房的年轻人实在是太少了。

总而言之,萝卜青菜,各有所爱。如果你喜欢历史和文化,你可以在北京住。如果你想要做生意,想要方便的生活,你可以在上海住。在你的国家,最重要的城市是什么?人们怎么看这个城市?欢迎给我们留言和分享!

Hello, everyone! Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese!

When it comes to China, many people think of Beijing and Shanghai. These are the two most famous and important cities in China. In the eyes of many, people from Beijing and Shanghai look down on each other. To look down on someone means to disrespect or have a low opinion of them. It is said that some people from Beijing look down on Shanghai, and some people from Shanghai also look down on Beijing. They look down on each other Is this true? What are the similarities and differences between Beijing and Shanghai? Today, let’s talk about these two important cities in China.

Both Beijing and Shanghai have nicknames. Beijing is known as the Imperial Capital, and Shanghai is called the Magic City. “Du” means metropolis, which is big cities. Why is Beijing called the Imperial Capital? Because it used to be the city of the emperors. Beijing has the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, and many things related to the emperors of the past. Why is Shanghai called the Magic City? It has to do with the English word “modern.” Shanghai is an international city, very “modern.” Also, because Shanghai is different from many other places in China, people say it’s like a special “devil,” very attractive.

Both Beijing and Shanghai have their own characteristics. Beijing people think Beijing is the best. It has ancient culture, was once the residence of emperors, and is the capital of China. Beijing people are also straightforward and speak directly. Shanghai people think Shanghai is the best. Its economy is strong, and Shanghai people are gentle. Some people from Beijing think that Shanghai people think too much and are too concerned about trivial matters. Some Shanghai people think that people from Beijing often forget the things they promised and it’s difficult to do business with them. Some say that we should be friends with people from Beijing because they value friendship a lot and are willing to do anything for their friends. We should do business with people from Shanghai because they are calm and always make the best decisions to make the most money.

In fact, Beijing and Shanghai are both unique cities. “Du yi wu er” means the most special. China cannot do without Beijing or Shanghai. Beijing is the political and cultural center of China, while Shanghai is its economic center. They are both especially important for China. Although they have some differences, they have more similarities. First, both cities have a large population, with over 20 million people in each. These two cities attract many young people. Second, the average salaries of people from Beijing and Shanghai are high. That’s also why these two cities attract many young people. Third, houses in Beijing and Shanghai are expensive. Although many young people come to these two cities, very few of them can afford to buy a house in Beijing or Shanghai.

In conclusion, different people have different preferences. If you are interested in history and culture, you can live in Beijing. If you want to do business and have a convenient lifestyle, you can live in Shanghai. In your country, what is the most important city? How do people view that city?
