7. Cleanliness

America is cleaner than China. 'Keep America Beautiful' is something that is deep in the mindset in the USA. Its part of our cultural mindset. Public toilets are much cleaner than the ones I've observed in China.

IMO, China strives to be cleaner, simply because there are people sweeping the streets, washing down guardrails and retaining walls, planting, etc. I was shocked to see dirty pavements and dusty walls in the states. Here I've yet to step in a wad of gum but in the states you have to watch where you walk lest you get stuck to the pavement.

i hear more Chinese people complain and being unhappy with their lives in China, perhaps more so because of, among other things, family forced career and marriage choices than in US, or repressed emotions or feelings due to cultural beliefs.

I fully agree, but I hear of instances of violent crime that are not reported in the news as openly as in US.

If you want a better education that teaches you to think and express yourself, then I would say the US. If you want a place to enjoy and experience different cultures in one country, then I would say China.

If you want a clean environment where there are more efficiencies in our daily lives, then I would say the U.S.  If you want a place to savor delicious and a wider varieties of food, then I would say China.

If you want to be reminded ever now and then of personal hygiene and common courtesy, then I would say the U.S. If you want to be able to travel inexpensively and via public transportation, then I would say China.
