Talk About Rush Hour!
You are about to see one of the most amazing “morning commute” videos EVER – from the MOST crowded country in the world!
Welcome To China!
I have been lucky enough to travel to some amazing places: the French Riviera, Italy, Spain most recently…and some amazingly unique places like Tokyo, Seoul and Bali…
But I’ve never had the chance to go to China yet – to witness THIS!
Congrats To Beijingcream!
Thanks to the great webiste “Beijingcream.com”, here is a look a tthe world’s most crowded subway system…talk about packed in like sardines!
Here’s what “Beijingcream” posted: “What you are looking at is Beijing Subway’s Line 13 on the morning of Thursday, July 18, around 7:30. It’s likely the Xierqi station — a picture of which, tweeted out by Joe Xu, we linked to on Friday — which is a transfer station and one of the cleaner, better-looking ones in the system.”
“It has, like other stations in Beijing’s vast underground transportation network, built-in artificial bottlenecks intended to relieve congestion in the form of gates and narrow staircases. On some occasions, however, those fail. For you see, in China, sometimes there are simply too many goddamn people.”
I love how “Beijingcream” wrote about the subway system…and here is their entire article on the subject:
But even better, they posted a video! Check this out!
Welcome To Shanghai!
First, take a moment to look at this Shanghai subway map – it’s like a Rubik’s Cube! It’s great to see that they have a terrific subway system, but talk about complex – and CROWDED!
Shanghai’s subway system is one of the most complex – and clean – in the world – but they just have SO MANY PEOPLE!
And They Love Their Robots, Too!
And you know, I’ve posted about unique aspects of China before….like the fact that they use Robots in their restaurants!

And They Love Their Flavored Potato Chips, Too!
And of course, I wrote all about their uniquely flavored potato chips!
Hot & Sour Fish!
Pepsi chicken chips are just the tip of the culinary iceberg – they also have hot and sour fish potato chips!
And, if you just want to read all about this unique country, then I have three words for you:
Troost, Troost, Troost!
And of course, read a terrific book all about China, from the hilarious travel writer J. Maarten Troost!
Thanks once again China for your unique – and crowded – take on everything!
