" [$ t( j. F  L% cService in Hong Kong is famously rude, unless you're paying top dollar for 5-star, 'western' treatment. I don't think it's intentional, but perhaps just because the place is so crowded. Try getting polite service in any local restaurant in Wanchai at lunch time. The staff just don't have the time for the niceties of manners. They will often be friendly and cheerful, but this is not the same as giving good, polite, attentive service.

I'm going to add to what I wrote before, to say that a lot of what people are writing here seems to be considering western-style services. Hotels, for example. Sure, a 5-star hotel in mainland China isn't going to be like one in Hong Kong or elsewhere (except some major chains such as Hilton etc. in the big cities such as Shanghai). But try a local, budget hotel and you'd be surprised how accommodating they can be.  If you tell them you are a non-smoker they may even reconnect the smoke detector in your room (they'll leave the ash tray, though).
  E9 [$ X' f0 _7 ^1 O! W
1 Y# r7 @( f* x2 `+ ~) b' C0 H: o7 f我要为我之前写的内容做些补充,谈谈关于有很多人在这里写的东西看起来都是用西方服务标准来考虑。以宾馆为例,毫无疑问,5星级的宾馆在大陆和香港的或者任何地方的(包括那些大的连锁例如希尔顿等等)不会一模一样。但是到当地去试一试,经济型的宾馆,你会惊讶的发现他们是多么的好打交道。如果你告诉他们你不吸烟他们甚至会在你的房间安置烟雾报警器(尽管如此,他们还是会留下烟灰缸)。  R, O8 B) S3 V6 a( s+ j
; H# g/ w, k# f3 _. x' N
The use of local hotels and restaurants, though, does get better if you can speak Mandarin. I think perhaps some of the problem is communication. There's a whole lot of good stuff out there and polite, helpful people, but they're a bit shy about approaching foreigners, have low confidence in their English ability and generally struggle to give foreigners the same level of customer service that they would be able to give to a local. That being said, though, they would seldom run away from me, even back in the day when I couldn't speak Mandarin. Most everyone seemed really friendly and curious and keen to talk to me, even if I couldn't understand a word, back then.2 a0 d# `+ W4 b# M3 y
3 \( O. A& k% g  l8 m4 H
如果你会讲普通话,怎么说,当地的宾馆或者餐馆的用处会更大。我想也许问题在沟通上面。那里到处都是优秀的服务生和有礼貌的,乐于助人的人们,但是他们对于和外国人接触有些害羞,对于自己的英文水平没有自信并且通常争取提供给外国人和他们能够提供给本地人的一样的服务。就像之前说过的,尽管如此,他们很少避开我,甚至是我在我不会说普通话的日子里。那个时候,几乎大部分人都真的友善的好奇的渴望和我交流,即便我一个字都听不懂。) z/ r$ `- j3 n' G9 v

- g  B; L; }, F' r, ?. h; J( nSomeone mentioned that everything costs more in mainland China. Well that's because you buy only imported goods at international outlets. Pretty much everything actually costs an awful lot less. I lived there for several years and most of the time I spent only a dollar or two each day (except when I needed to travel places, bribe policemen, bribe doctors or bribe a tax-collector). In Hong Kong, where I live now, that wouldn't even cover the cost of my morning newspaper.9 Y$ f* l8 s; @# M" R! E

7 b( Q  ^4 a2 Y2 ~  J% n有人说在大陆所有的东西都更贵。那是因为你只在国际商店购买进口商品。几乎所有的物品都有一个可怕的价格或多或少。我曾经在那里住过几年,大部分时候我一天只花一两个美元(除了当我需要旅行,贿赂警察,贿赂医生或者贿赂税收人员)。在香港,我现在住的任何地方,那些都不够我早上买报纸的钱。

There are huge differences starting with how people drive (mainland is insane), politeness (HK wins), food (well, mainland variety is best but you need to stick to hotels or well known restaurants), Hospitals (OMG, mainland...no way!!!), Scenery (China wins hands down), People (well, I have friends in both places and have had good and bad experiences in both..same in USA and everywhere I've been. Shopping...China and HK have the same stores but HK is much cheaper. China has enormous import taxes on imported goods. Buying in a Dept store can be frustrating since person waiting on you cannot take your money. You have to go to a separate counter to pay, get a receipt, then return to get your goods. Takes twice as long as in HK or anywhere else. Loyalty, once you get to know people in both places they are just as loyal. Patience? Chinese have no patience at all and resort to creating a huge scene when they don't get what they want. This spills over in public and even when driving around. Don't ever get involved in an accident in China. They will demand instant monetary compensation.8 y; y! e1 [2 Q# p

: r5 _! {8 K7 Q0 S( |( H  T 我在香港住了15年,在大陆住了9年。两地的差距很大,从开车说起(大陆开车简直是疯了),礼貌(香港胜出),烹饪(嗯,大陆的品种最多,不过你得去宾馆或者有名的餐馆去吃),医院(老天,大陆的医院……没治!)景点(大陆毫无悬念胜出),人(嗯,两地我都有朋友,在两地我都有过好和坏经历……跟在美国和其他我去过的地方一样)。购物……大陆和香港都有类似的店,不过香港便宜很多。大陆对进口商品征收很高的进口税。在百货商店买东西很让人抓狂,卖东西给你的人不能直接收你的钱。你要另外走到一个专门的柜台去交钱,然后凭着发票,回去取你的东西。比香港或者其他任何地方花了多一倍的时间。忠诚度,一旦你跟他们认识了,这两个地方的人都很忠诚。耐心?中国人根本没耐心。要是他们有什么不满意,最后肯定会闹得鸡飞狗跳。这种情形在公众场合很多,连开车也不例外。在大陆千万别出车祸。他们会要你马上赔钱的。

I also disagree on number 5, stayed at western hotel chains in China and no one spoke English and few people were helpful. For point 4, If you get lost, ask a local for directions? Even mainlanders who spoke English wouldn't help us when we were lost. HK, though, is totally different, we have had great experiences every time we visit . . .# X0 C* S( F, U) e' g6 ~4 x/ R7 `- o0 k

: T, U  X6 Q* ~& i' t; E''If tourists get into trouble, they'll probably find local police in both places just as unhelpful and hospitals pretty much as expensive as anywhere else.'' -> I strongly disagree with this! If you ask for help in HK, the services offerred by Hong Kong Police as well as hospitals are much better than that of China! My friend had a very bad experience in China. Her father died in China and she has to bribe the government officials in order to get back her father's corpse... It is inhumane!

: ^/ z& l* Q0 o+ ^8 B+ n+ zNever been to China or Hong Kong, but I have read a good deal about both places. My vote is that visiting Hong Kong does not count as visiting China. If someone were to visit Hong Kong and China, I would say that they had visited two different countries. English is much more in the Hong Kong culture than it is in Chinese culture. While I would say Hong Kong is Chinese, it's not China.

I have to totally disagree with the last point. I've both worked in the hotel industry, and been on numerous business trips in China, I have to say the standard of service is nowhere near the same, even for a 5-star international chain brand. One of my experiences was from a 5-star international chain hotel in Beijing, there were 2 front desk staff and no guests, and when I approach them, they didn't address me or even look at me, I stood there for a good 2 minutes. They only begrudgingly acknowledged my existence after a loud "a-hem" from me. This would not happen in HK.

我完全不同意最后一点。我在宾馆行业工作过,也到中国出过很多次差。我得说服务标准差远了,即便是在5星级的国际连锁品牌酒店。我曾经在北京的一个5星级国际连锁酒店住过,那里有2个前台工作人员,就是没有顾客。当我走进他们的时候,他们根本不向我问候,连个眼神也没给。我站在那里足足2分钟。在我大声地”咳“一声后,他们只是嘟嘟囔囔地应答了我。这样的事在香港绝对不会发生。 4 `% k; m. x) O, o* Y1 R

I live in the Chinese town of Zhang Mu Tou, Dong Guan city. A 20 minute train ride from the Hong Kong border so we get lots of HK people. So much that it's called "Little Hong Kong" here. About the alcohol drinking, the big problem is not pricing. Rather it's counterfeits. I would say that at local bars here 25 to 50% of beer, hards and Chinese wine are questionable. In Hong Kong I have never had quite the headaches suffered here.+ H7 U, |5 @: ^* u$ {! g+ ?

As a frequent flyer to both Hong Kong (HK) and Mainland China, the basic difference that I havenoticed is that of people. HK has the business bug overwhelmed at every corner. Somehow thathumanness, smiling or being polite, is sadly missing in HK. Totally opposite in Mainland Chinawhere one can lost the count of how many smiles you receives in a day, that too from unknownstrangers. Its a more inter-personal experience that makes one feel more welcoming in China thenin HK. I don't blame HK people for there behavior, after all, they have more tourists then the totalpopulation of HK everyday in the city thus hard to be friendly with all.Food is great both in HK as well as in China. What I like in HK is that after spending a week inChina I need some authentic western or European food and HK is just the right place for it. Plentyof options on the street as well as top notch restaurants. The local street food too is fantastic. Butthen, the original Hunan or Sichuan or Dong Bei (North Chinese) or the very famous Beijing Duck,you have to be in China. I have travelled to all the corners of China,except, XinJiang and Tibet thatI hope to visit sometime, and the diversified authenticity and pureness of the people in MainlandChina makes them so much different from those in HK.Overall, both HK and China have there own unique identities. Difference is that most of the citizensgets visa on entry in HK, but need a sticker visa on passport for China. Thats where the differencestarts.  G5 J$ ]1 O) W7 t

我经常飞去香港和大陆,我注意到这两个地方的差别就是人。香港到处都弥漫着商业的气息。在某种程度上,香港的人性、笑容和礼貌正慢慢丢失,真令人悲哀。在中国大陆则是完全不同,你根本记不住每天会有多少人会对你笑,即使是陌生人也会对你笑。这种人与人之间的交流会让你感觉在中国要比在香港更受到欢迎。我并不埋怨香港人的举止,毕竟,每天到香港旅游的人比香港本地人口还多,因此他们没办法对每个人都表示出友好。/ n9 p% b' J% y2 I7 F

在香港和大陆菜都很不错。要是我在中国待上一个星期后想吃点纯正的西式或欧式的菜,香港就非常适合了,这就是我喜欢香港的地方。在街上,在顶级餐馆里,可以吃的东西太多了。当地街边小吃也很不错。不过,要吃原汁原味的湖南或四川或东北菜,或者是有名的北京鸭,你就得去大陆了。我去过中国各个角落,除了XJ和XZ。我希望将来有时间能去这两个地方。各种地方特色还有人民的淳朴,使得中国大陆迥异于香港。8 d2 A2 Z- q, ?, k, Z

总之,香港和大陆都有自己独特的地方。差别只在于,大部分人到香港可以入境后签证,去大陆得先拿护照办好签证。这就是去这两个地方的第一个差别。! Y  R" n* f) e; V/ Y- U* U

I spent 8 days in China in April and really enjoyed it. I was in Chengdu and Beijing. The ForbiddenCity is awesome and enormous, although not very handicap-friendly. I had a guide for a day inChengdu and had a great time visiting some of the sights. The food from the food stalls on JinliStreet was delicious. I had some good meals in Beijing too. I stayed at Ibis hotels in both cities andhad nice rooms with good service. I want to return to China and see more of the country. I haven'tbeen to Hong Kong.

( u# b, M" Y' c- E, hI just read the below comments. And I am sorry to hear that complaints from foreign tourists who ever come to China. I have to say that China is socialist and developing country, which is certainly different from USA on many aspects. And nowadays China indeed exists problems that all of you referred to. But I believe that most Chinese are kind and friendly. I am sure that as long as you turn to Chinese for help, they really can do their best to find ways to help you. I am the one of such a big family. And China is improveing day after day. When all of you come to China again, she will give you a surprise.

You can't take it for granted that everywhere things are the same. And the reason you come to Mainland China or Hong Kong is for its difference, isn't it! So always be open-minded when what you see in your eyes and what you hear with your ears contradict with what you have expected in your mind. Cause the fact is the former is the real it. And when something lets you down, try to find the reason, other than let the bad feelings control you. Though the world is becoming a global village, it doesn't mean when a time comes, the village is there. It's every person from different culture comes to understand each other that makes the world a village. This is a long long journey to go. And everyone of us around the world is participating in it. Let's start from searching for mutual understanding.6 b1 g+ P# V( B- g! v" V
