The most suitable city for the elderly in Northwest China, only 130 kilometers away from Xi’an, with low prices and less than 10,000 yuan


Perhaps because our country is gradually aging, more and more people are beginning to pay attention to places suitable for elderly care, so that many articles about elderly care cities are particularly popular with readers. I have been walking outside all the year round, and I have basically traveled all over the country, and this trip to Shaanxi made me discover a city that is really suitable for elderly care, that is Shangluo City in Shaanxi, regardless of climate, environment, pace of life, consumption level, etc. In terms of measurement, Shangluo, in my opinion, is a very suitable city for the elderly. Next, let me introduce it to you slowly. It was taken in Shangluo City, Shaanxi Province in June 2021. Speaking of Shaanxi Province, people first think of Xi’an, Yan’an, Baoji, Xianyang and other cities. For Shangluo City, which is also a prefecture-level city in Shaanxi Province, people don’t know much about it. It is precisely because of this that Shangluo has become a small city. A well-known treasure place for the elderly. Shangluo City is located in the southeast of Shaanxi Province, bordering Lingbao City in Henan Province and Shiyan City in Hubei Province. Everyone likes to divide the south and the north, and the dividing line is the Qinling and Huaihe River. The north of the Qinling Mountains refers to the north, with four distinct seasons in spring, summer, autumn and winter, and the climate is relatively dry; the south of the Qinling Mountains refers to the south, which is a subtropical region with relatively humid climate, wet and cold in winter, and humid in summer. Many people say that Hangzhou is a paradise on earth, but I, a Hangzhou native, don’t think so at all. Hangzhou’s winter can be as cold as the bones, and Hangzhou’s summer can make people cooked. Take the current rainy season, wherever you go, it is wet and dew, which is quite uncomfortable. Shangluo City is located at the southern foot of the Qinling Mountains, at the junction of the north and the south. It is blocked by the vast Qinling Mountains. There is neither the dryness and sandy sky of the north nor the dampness and cold winter and hot summer of the south. It has excellent climatic conditions. The origin of the name Shangluo is due to the Shangshan Mountains and Luoshui within its territory. It is a good place with mountains and water, lush vegetation, fresh air and beautiful environment. Shangluo is only 130 kilometers away from “Xi’an”, the capital city of Shaanxi Province and the ancient capital of the thirteen dynasties. Perhaps it’s because Xi’an is so famous that people overlook this close city. When the housing prices in Xi’an are rising all the way, Shangluo’s housing prices are quite stable. The highest housing prices in the entire urban area are only 10,000 yuan per square meter, and most of the properties are around five to six thousand. It is said that this has risen in the past two years. . So it can become a retirement city, such housing prices are very suitable. Although housing prices are low, the city’s municipal construction is quite good, with hospitals, schools, parks, and large shopping malls complete. The biggest impression that Shangluo gave me is a city that combines north and south. It has the atmosphere of the north and the fine detailing of the south, and the roads are clean and tidy. There is no crowded traffic, no fast-paced work here, and only a comfortable petty bourgeoisie life. When the housing price is low, the price of goods is low, and the cost of living is also low. Food is the top priority for the people, and everyone’s biggest concern must be food. Shangluo’s cuisine is dominated by Shaanxi dishes, accompanied by some southern dishes, and of course some local specialties, which are basically a combination of north and south, with sour and spicy flavors. Regardless of the red bowl of this dish, it is not spicy, but very fragrant. In terms of price, it is much cheaper than Xi’an. The prices of many restaurants are only one-third of Xi’an, not to mention compared with the big cities of Beijing and Shanghai. In addition, Shangluo’s food is quite large, and friends who come from the south will definitely be shocked when they see it for the first time. Like many cities in China, the nightlife of Shangluo people is also quite rich. In addition to various entertainment venues, the most are barbecue shops. I lived in Shangluo for a week. Don’t look at the bright sun during the day and the high temperature. At night, the breeze is very cool. This is completely different from the southern city that feels so hot that there is nowhere to hide. At this time, meeting three or five friends, beer and skewers, is really a great event in life. Of course, the price is also very cheap, you know it after you eat it. According to archaeological findings, there were ancestors living in Shangluo in the Paleolithic age more than one million years ago. In that primitive age, people would choose this place, which shows that it is very suitable for human life. Historically, this place was an important town connecting the north and the south that military strategists must fight for. It was guarded by many dynasties with heavy soldiers, and many cultural relics were left behind. Shangluo has also become an area where the natural and cultural landscapes of Shaanxi Province are combined. There are more than 1,200 cultural relics protection points such as ancient ruins and ancient buildings, making it a good tourist and leisure city. The above is an introduction to Shangluo from the aspects of food, housing, transportation, play, prices, climate, history, etc. I hope it will be helpful to everyone.
