5 Chinese cities suitable for retirement When we are old...
Recently there has been a lot of discussion on Internet about "retirement at 65" and many people are pessimistic about retirement.
In fact, what I'm saying is that instead of worrying about irreversible politics, it's better to cherish present, enjoy life and imagine your life when you get old after hard work and life, and then work hard for it.
Everyone will grow old someday. When day of retirement comes, where do you plan to retire?
Many people might say: when I retire, I will return to my hometown, grow flowers and vegetables on weekdays, show off and play cards with old people in neighborhood, and do things I haven't done before. have time to do when I was young.
Some people will say: when I get old, I will find a place with mountains and rivers, I will live a measured and comfortable life, enjoy my old age peacefully and count years that have passed.
