With the large amount of Chinese characters are Bitcoin addresses a lot shorter or do they just write them using our letters and numbers?

They would use latin numbers and letters, like we see here. If you tried using Chinese characters it would become a different addy. I think?

Bitcoin addresses are binary data, they are often expressed in Base64 to make them human readable, and allow for easy cutting and pasting. Although Chinese characters could use a similar scheme, as Base64, I'm not aware of any that exists at the moment.

Actually Bitcoin addresses are encoded with Base58 to avoid similar characters (0OIl). https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Base58Check_encoding

Using Chinese characters encoded with UTF-8 would lead to different address lengths as the UTF-8 length for Chinese characters is 3 to 4 bytes.

So the next question jumps clear;

Why don't the chinese people have a fork of the Bitcoin project in their base language?

Why do they care? Bitcoin addresses are just gibberish to everybody.

Thousands of character choices versus - what - 62 choices for alphanumeric characters... how much shorter could addresses be?

I read both just fine. It's easy to read both if you're versed in either one IMO. And no, Singapore and Malaysia use the simplified version exclusively, not the traditional version.
