it is really hard to say which is better than the other, city life or rural life, because each has its merits and shortcomings.
living in a city, people have certain advantages. first, people enjoy various entertainments, both foreign and domestic. second, there are more cultural activities in a city. third, city dwellers gain acceto better information service and educational facilities. however, problems exist. the overcrowded population, traffic jam, housing problem, industrial pollution and other issues may result in depression, nervousneand diseases. laving in the country, people can enjoy living in pure nature. they lead a si-mp-le and trouble free life. but rural life may not be that perfect. people usually lack cultural activities. they are relatively ill informed . things go fairly slowly there. and people misome golden opportunities of ma-ki-ng a fortune. the chances of their children being admitted to colleges are slim.
obviously, whatever life they lead, people can never feel perfectly satisfied, for conveniences and inconveniences always coexist. people wish that they could enjoy the pleasures of both lives. with the rapid economic development, nowadays city dwellers can relax themselves in the country during vacation; and country people have chance to experience city lifestyle when they come to cities.
life in the city is very different from life in the villages and on the farms. people in large cities are much more careful to respect the privacy of the individual. sometimes this feeling seems to be one of indifference, but it is a convention of city life to curb one's curiosity about the personal affairs of strangers. villagers and farmers are likely to show a great deal of interest in all their neighbors. opportunities for bright young people are greater in the cities and there has been a steady stream of hopeful jobseekers from the villages and farms to the large metropolitan areas.
