My hometown and Guangzhou are different in many ways. Firstly, people in Guangzhou speak several languages. For example, local citizens speak Cantonese, and the immigrants speak Mandarin. And there are many foreigners and oversea people living in Guangzhou. They mainly speak English. Once I traveled in Guangzhou, I found it a little difficult to understand Cantonese. Thus I tried to communicate with them in Mandarin. Sometimes when I met some foreigners, I also chatted with them in English. However, people in my hometown always speak local dialect.
Secondly, people in my hometown are selfish, because they only care about their own benefits. But people in Guangzhou are much more generous. They are willing to help others when people are in trouble.
Thirdly, Guangzhou is in the south of China. With Pearl River running across the city, Guangzhou enjoys a warm and wet climate. While my hometown is deep in the mountains, and the weather is so changeable. Sometimes it’s as cold as winter, and sometimes it’s as hot as summer in a day, which make me feel so irritated.
Besides, the food in my hometown is too hot and spicy. But Cantonese food is much lighter. It’s neither too salty nor too light.
Finally, the environment in my hometown is polluted seriously, because of the tail gas emitted by private cars. And the waste gas and water from factories is also a main cause of pollution. Nevertheless, in Guangzhou, trees and flowers are planted everywhere, which can fight against the pollutants and provide us with fresh air. So the sky is fairly clean and bright. We will feel pleasant when getting around in that city. That’s why I get so tired of my hometown and how much I dream of living in Guangzhou!
