Chengdu \VS/ Datong-Which is better? Created by Edgar Lee. All rights reserved? nope.

-EARTHQUAKES.

The earthquake that just happened in the video above (Magnitude 7.5) has the power that equals 200,000 tons of TNT.

But the fact you need to know, is that earthquakes do not kill people. Buildings do.

CHENGDU HAS EARTHQUAKE-RESISTANT BUILDINGS ALL OVER THE CITY AND HAS INSURED THE BUILDINGS SO THAT THE GOVERNMENT WILL HELP PAY TO FIX THE DAMAGE EARTHQUAKES HAVE DONE TO BUILDINGS.

DATONG IS NOT YET PROPERLY *EQUIPPED* WITH EARTHQUAKE-RESISTANT STRUCTURES, BUT THE EARTHQUAKES IN THE AREA HAPPEN IN AN AVERAGE INTERVAL OF 12 MONTHS AT AN AVERAGE MAGNITUDE OF M3.0 OR ABOVE.

-OVERVIEW OF DATONG AND CHENGDU

A view of the urban area in Datong, Shanxi, China. You can see many buildings under construction far out there. The majority of the jobs in Datong is coal mining. The biggest company in Datong is the Datong Coal Mining Group, and it is one of the big coal mines all over China.

This is the urban area of Chengdu. Big companies' buildings are all located in the metropolitan area of Chengdu, and almost all of the jobs in Chengdu are located here. Also, more than 500 companies have settled in Chengdu until 2012.

"ECONOMY"

_The cost of living?

According to www.expatistan.com, the cost of living in Chengdu is 18% cheaper overall than Datong. A month of rent for a furnished 85m2 apartment is 5,000 chinese yuan, and it is very cheap for a furnished 85m2 apartment.

-EDUCATION!

Wondering which university that your cute children will go to? Go to Chengdu for 30+ universities waiting for your child, and 20+ international K-12 schools in the area. Datong only has schools that the government built, and one of the schools in the area is built by the big coal mine company. It is at a very poor condition, and the education there, is not recommended by the local people, according to google maps reviews about the place.

So this is pretty much it!

Reasons why the climate and food in Chengdu and Datong weren't listed? Because the two cities have nearly the same climate, which is a humid and fairly cool climate all year long. The local food actually didn't matter, because we aren't going to be going outside to eat meals every single day.
