Due to the "tonality" of Chinese, or rather, Mandarin Chinese and Cantonese, I don't seem to like it as much as, say, Japanese or Korean. Honestly there are more European languages I like than Asian. But it's really a "to each their own" thing.
I'm a firm believer that China and Chinese culture has something for just about everyone. Don't let the Nationalists fool you. Chinese culture isn't all about the Han. There are plenty of ethnic groups in China and diversity. China isn't simply made up of one race. And don't like the haters get to ya' as well. The government definitely needs some work, but it isn't as bad of a place to live as many people say.
I'm personally a bit of a Harbin fanboy. I kind of like Xinjiang, as well.
