Like in China, as a foreign guy I could go to the most upper-class seafood restaurant in town without reservation and dine on a 3 course meal. Have a constant flow of beer and tea and struggle to spend 60 Yuan, which is equivalent to £6 in English money. In contrast in England I would have to reserve a table, turn up in a suit and tie and squint when the bill arrives because it will be in the ballpark of £100. You can rent a top class hotel for 100 Yuan a night which is about £10 in English money. The equivalent hotel in England would be closer to £80 a night. For this reason, many people have decided to emigrate from Europe to South East Asia to live like a millionaire!
