Unlike Beijing and Shanghai, where foreigners are found everywhere, in second tier cities you will be more of a curiosity. People will be approaching you, wanting to make friends, on an almost daily basis. Most just want to practice their English a get a free lesson but some will truly become good friends with you on a long term basis.
