China claims to be as large as 9.6 million square kilometers. And yet [we] have to sleep this way?
It looks like a place for laying dead bodies.
Only China’s firefighting brigades will let this inn run! You will be chocked to death even by smoking.
Why it looks like a place for locking up dogs in those American movies?? A dog shelter??
It can be marketed for sleeping berths on the train.
If you fart, you will be killed by your own stinky gas.
Is it necessary? We can only be like this when the government doesn’t regulate housing prices? This is also an insult on people.
So they leave a huge number of houses empty and let us live in the cage?
There is no place for rabble to hide despite 9.6 million square kilometers of land.
It reminds me of Auschwitz concentration campThe difference is, you have to pay here.
Not bad. Will try if I have a chance.
If one man snores, the rest will not fall asleep.
It’s actually quite nice. Let’s have more in the country.
