Travel: What it’s like to visit China – Super Clean Beijing and Shanghai

This is part of my Travel Series.

I hear this is something that is not normal in other Chinese cities, but Beijing and Shanghai were SPOTLESS.

Not a single speck of a speck to be found.

They had a whole army of cleaners going around, cleaning everything, wiping things, it was kind of eerie.

They were sometimes eco-friendly, using bamboo leaves as brooms:

These cleaners are everywhere in Shanghai and Beijing.

Then you also had people who recycled items for a job, which helped cut down on any littering.

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.
