One reason is because China is socially free, while not politically free, and as mentioned by someone already it is a very safe place. In general, while petty crime does exist, that’s mostly as far as it goes. Occasionally there are public arguments or some slight physical altercation, but there are no guns involved! While the US has political freedom, in some ways it can get out of hand easily.

原因之一,中国社会自由,如其他人提到的那样,是非常安全的地方。
一般而言,虽然有轻微犯罪存在,但也就这样程度的犯罪了。
偶尔爆发轻微肢体冲突事件,但是不会出现枪击案!
美国有政治自由,某些方面容易失控。

Because most Expats in China check most of these boxes.
They’re white ( ish.)
They’re living in a 1st tier or upper 2nd tier city
They were relatively educated but not from super high level backgrounds.
I assume most check at least 2 . In this situation Yes China is probably better for them than in the US….. and…. it’s better for them than most Chinese.

大多数在中国的外国人具备如下属性:白人、住在一线或二线大城市、受过良好教育。

大多数人至少占两样。在这种情况下,中国或许对他们来说比美国更好。而且,也比大多数中国人过得更好。

Julian Mintzis ‘ answer notes that there’s Social freedom in China … that’s kinda only true for Expats, for locals there’s all sorts of cultural pressure, though unlike the States it’s usually more between your parents to you instead of between peers.
Meanwhile, there’s the irony of how China ( and a lot of other Asian areas) is actually where REAL White privilege plays out, although it’s no longer quiiite as silly as last decade where people literally hire random White guys as poster boys, there is still a lot of icky elements of this.

Julian Mintzis 答案指出,中国有社会自由;这点只适用于外国人,当地人面临各种各样的文化压力,尽管这种压力不像美国是同龄人给的,而是父母给的。

令人讽刺的是,中国实际上真正上演着白人至上,尽管这点已经不像十年前那样极端,人们雇佣白人作为海报模特。

And of course, being in the big cities you see most of China’s positives and a lot less of the negatives, and being foreigners means your relatively free from potential big brother problems unless you go asking for trouble.
And of course, being willing to be an Expat probably put you in a certain category of people, and you’ll end up in a community where it’s mostly birds of the same feather, where as back home that’s probably not the case.

当然,在大城市中,你会看到中国积极的一面,或多或少有消极的一面,作为外国人,意味着你相对不会面临“老大哥”的问题,除非你自找麻烦。

如果你乐意成为外国人,可能会把你归属一类人中,你的交际局限在外表相似的群体中,而在国内并非如此。

Aside from various physical and infrastructural points, and having lived in both countries, I noticed the Chinese people I dealt with at many levels were positive about their future and proud of their country. They have seen progress, their lives have got better over the last 15 or so years, and they expect their lives to continue to improve.
Many USA people I deal with or see, despite being “wealthier” in general (physically better off – more assets – higher incomes), just don’t see a future with progress. They saw things slipping, and some uncertainty as to their future well-being.

在两个国家呆过,从交往过的中国人来看,中国人对未来抱着乐观态度,为祖国感到自豪。中国人看到了进步,过去15年生活变得更美好,期望自己的生活继续改善。

很多我交往过的美国人,尽管总体而言“更富裕”(资产更多、收入更高),却看不到未来。一些对自己未来幸福并不确定。

These observations were limited to 2009 – 2012 (post GFC). The difference in positive attitude was noticeable then. I only imagine it’s way more so now.
To answer the question, I guess the positive attitude of the people that they deal with is one of the factors that impresses “foreigners” strongly.

这些观察仅限于2009年~2013年,乐观态度的差异显而易见,我想现在更是如此。

回到问题本身,我认为是,外国人交往过的当地人的积极态度,给“外国人”留下了深刻印象。

As an American… f u c k foreigner’s opinions. We don’t care what communist morons think. They don’t live here. They don’t get to vote. Their opinion doesn’t matter when it comes to US government.

作为美国人,我们不在乎GC主义的想法,他们又不住这里。他们没投票权,他们的看法对美国政府来说不重要。

I don’t think many foreigners think China is better than the US. Many Chinese people dream of moving to the US. I am an American that lives in China, so I am not sure if I am a foreigner or not in this scenario, but few people think China is the greasiest country. When I was living in the US I held the common belief that America is the best country. After moving to China I realized this idea is very complicated. In my opinion, America is only the best at being American. Even though I believe that some might even argue Canada does a better job at being American than America.

我并不认为很多外国人觉得中国比美国好。
很多中国人梦想着去美国。
我是住在中国的美国人,我不确定自己是不是题目所指的外国人,很少人认为中国是最贪婪的国家。
在美国时,我坚信美国是最好的国家。到中国后,我发现没那么简单。

Obviously, these foreigners have never been to China. Just like in 1950s,many Korean people who lived in Japan thought that North Korea was an earthly paradise. So maybe in almost every way, the United States is definitely better than China ,but we cannot deny that the propaganda system of China is really good,and their brainwashing is always successful.

很明显,这些外国人从未去过中国。
像50年代一样,很多住在日本的韩国人认为朝鲜是人间天堂。
或许几乎所有方面,美国比中国好,但不能否认中国的宣传做得不错,他们的洗脑一直很成功。
