Will Dongguan become a hole city ?

Popularity 7Viewed 847 times 2015-10-15 22:43 |System category:Others| hole, city

How many component do you think constitute a  modern city ?For instance, the people ,the vehicles ,the buildings ,and the plants and so forth .As far as I am concerned ,of all the basic elements the most important element is human beings .What if  there is no people ,obviously there is no vitality .The whole city is a deserted city or ghost city .

Dongguan which is well known as “the world factory ”.You can see factories everywhere ,even in the center area .However you may also be shocked by the old and shabby industrial park. There is nothing into it expect some rampant rats after the company closed down. Due to enormous fees of reconstruction, most of the plants were abandoned , empty at last .

As for the public transportation  ,only bus and high-speed railway ,no subway .Whereas you may feel a pity that there is also no fixed station for the bus .You can ask the driver stop anywhere along the way as long as you want .That sounds good ,right ?No ,always I would be confused by the rules of taking bus ,I don’t know where to wait the bus.Besides ,the fare are various from bus to bus ,except some of the city bus .Even though I have been stayed there for one month ,the regular pattern still baffled me .

From the point of Mallow's hierarchy of needs theory, security is the top demand factor after physical needs. No one would like to live with all kinds of threats. Nevertheless this city brings me lots of sense of insecurity. Personally experienced swindle, the policemen failing to do its job. Seeing one strong man being robbed in the morning…….Is that the reason why plenty of people leave Dongguan ?

One day my friend asked me suddenly, “ Do you think will Dongguan become a hole city ?””Hmmm, that is a question .I have never thought about this. But I hope not . And I think everything will be ok in future .As you can see ,many new buildings are springing up .” “Oh, ok ,let’s bet .”Even though I don’t like this city at all ,I still prefer to give with hope ,fill my heart with desire .

A city is more than just the physical buildings and transportation. It is also about the people and the culture of the city.

A home is where you build your life and family. A city is where you find work.

To make a city a home, there need to more than just building and jobs. It need to be a place you can are happy to raise a family in, a place you feel your children will be safe and have a future, a place you can be proud of and feel good whenever you return back from a trip.

I am not sure what you meant about a whole city. A city need not be complete as long as it is growing and vibrant and has a future you can have pride in. Be proud!

Yes ,it is not suitable for living .As for the unsafe accidents ,it is really true ,personal experience .Even if you call the police ,they will tell you "sorry ,the man who takes charge of your case is off duty today ,come tomorrow ,ok ?"or just let you wait wait wait ....delay your time on purpose .From then on ,I realize that I has been cheated so many years ,the police are not omnipotent.
