My First Few Days In China
This is what motivated me to come here, and to work for The ODM Group to improve and expand upon what I have previously learnt about cultures and business practices. The beginnings of what will one day hopefully set me on a path to a successful career.
Starting my journey off in Hong Kong my initial impressions of China was of a dense, exciting, Multicultural place with massive skyscrapers the like of which I've never seen before.
After spending one night in Hong Kong I travelled next to Macau a similar place due to its high western influence but a big twist of being very much casino and gambling orientated city that definitely deserved the title of 'eastern Las vegas'.
Finally it was off to Zhuhai, where I will be living for the next 2 months. When I arrived I found a city with big open green spaces and pleasant beaches contrasting to the claustrophobic manic streets of Hong Kong and Macau. What I wasn't expecting was the vast difference between the post-colonial settlements of Hong Kong and Macau and mainland China . Everything from the food, landscapes, mannerisms and the lack of english speakers all overwhelmed me at first! But now I have managed to take control of the situation and I'm ready to go head first into the remainder of my time China and I can honestly said I'm filled with immense excitement of whats to come.
