What is the antonym of 不如? E.g.:

今年我旅游很少, 不如去年 (situation is worse than last year)

And I need a word for the reverse situation:

今年我旅游很多, ???去年 (situation is better than last year)

不如 has a negative meaning so it does not suit here, as far as I know.

  • see any grammar on comparison, e。g。"实用现代汉语语法",比较的方式,第一节:比较事物、形状的同异,第一节:比较性质、程度的差别、高低,第一节,一、A 跟 B 一样,二、A 有 B 那么(这么)。。。第二节:一、"比"字句,二、"不比"句,三、"没有"句,四、"不如"句。It seems the most common way would be "比"字句: (今年)比去年好 ,may place "更"、"还"、"还要"before predicate (好 in present case), also 用程度补语"多"表示比较的双方差别很大。例如:这只鸭子比那只肥得多。 (今年)比去年好得多

Use 超过 or 胜过(more positive)

今年我旅游很多, 超过去年

  • Two more: 尤胜 and 远超, meaning 'far better'

  • And to specify "N-times better" - "超过去年几倍多" Commented Nov 30, 2017 at 7:14

Since 很多 has a positive meaning, simply 比起 (compared to) works:


  • 比起 has neutral meaning so it could be used in both sentences. I gueass there is still something for positive case. Any way it's very useful version "..., 跟去年比起来". Commented Nov 16, 2017 at 13:55

今年我旅游很多, 比去年还多

This year I traveled a lot, even more than (how much I did) last year.


像 = 如 in this context.

今年我旅遊很多,不像 去年。
