I know you know nothing about the postal services either in China or in Hong Kong. It's probably b ...

If you addressed a letter to the USA in foreign language it would either be delivered very late or not at all.
Why would you expect China to be any different?
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Who in their right mind writes an address in a FOREIGN language, Deer? In the USA, all addresses are written in ENGLISH. If you choose to write it in Russian, with Cyrillic letters, it stands to reason that it will not arrive, or not arrive in time.

In CHINA, what prevents an ordinary letter from making it to its destination can be a triviality such as the envelope being one you brought from overseas and not having the six cases on the front side to hold the figures for the six-digit postal code. Even if you write the postal code on the top of the address as is custom in the PRC, and the whole address in Chinese, your letter is likely to travel as short a distance as that from the post office counter to the rubbish bin.

And it will have cost you the regular postage.

Who writes the address on a postal item in a FOREIGN language? In the USA you write the address of course in ENGLISH. If you write a known address in Russian, using Cyrillic letters, it goes without emphasising that that postal item will take longer to make it to its intended recipients.

Why do you posit such childish questions, Bobby?

Over in CHINA, your letter will probably cover the best part of the distance between the post office counter and one of its rubbish bins even if you write the address in Chinese but on an envelope you brought from abroad.

If the envelope does not come with five little cases side by side on the top the post office will refuse to accept it, or if they accept it, refuse to carry it to its intended destination.

This is because the standard envelope in use in China comes with those little empty cases meanbt for the five-digit postal code.

It's so ridiculous that you have to submit to this stupid red tape. Every time you send a letter you must stuff it into an official standard envelope. These are horrible and cheap things with no self-adhesive flaps. You even have to glue the stamp on the envelope.

How terribly backward!

Indians are extremely racist towards Chinese and non Indians.  Just go to any workplaces dominated by Indians.

So you won't accept a better China Post service if it is made available to you courtesy of Indian problem fixers? There goes YOUR racism.
