Which city in China is the poorest?
Poor travelers in China may be less likely to buy goods from local brands, according to data from a Chinese travel consultancy.
But there are some notable outliers, including the city of Wuhan in southern China’s Guangdong province, where travel agencies have found that almost two-thirds of people have no bank account, compared with the national average of 71 per cent.
And in the city, the poverty rate is particularly high, at 37 per cent, according the Shanghai-based Shanghai Tourism Bureau.
The city has been the focus of much media coverage over the past year, with several bloggers and social media users pointing out the glaring inequality between the city’s rich and poor.
The number of people living below the poverty line in Shanghai, a city with a population of 4.5 million, has tripled in the past three years, the bureau said.
In January, the Shanghai Economic Commission said there were more than 3.3 million people in poverty in the Shanghai area, up from 2.8 million in 2014.
“In this situation, it’s not surprising that the public’s perception of poverty is higher,” said Li Li, an analyst at the Shanghai office of consultancy consultancy KPMG.
For some, that perception is reinforced by the increasing use of mobile apps that allow residents to manage their own finances.
While the city is still a relatively small city with just 1.2 million people, it is rapidly becoming one of the world’s most populous, with more than 40 million people living in the capital and some 10 million elsewhere.
But while it may not be the first place on the planet, it may be the most populous.
The city has more than 2.5 billion people, or about 17 per cent of the planet’s population.
Even if it were to become a “world class city”, as some have predicted, it would still be “a city of the rich”, Mr Li said.
It may not come as a surprise to learn that poor travelers in China are a relatively new phenomenon.
A number of studies have documented a growing number of impoverished people, and there have been increasing reports of them seeking help from travel agencies.
Since 2007, when China began making a concerted effort to eradicate poverty, a number of cities have become destinations for people who are looking to escape the country’s poverty, according a report by the China Institute of Social Science and Policy at Tsinghua University.
One of those cities is Wuhanyu, a port city on the Yangtze River that is home to about 200,000 people.
The poverty rate among those in the area is about twice the national rate, but the city has managed to survive.
Wuhanyo is the city that started the trend of poor traveler.
It’s no wonder that they’ve taken to the internet,” said a local villager, surnamed Zheng, who asked not to be identified.
Mr Zheng, 38, said he was lucky to have a wife and four children who worked for their mother.
He lives in a one-room house in a village in Wuhanya township and said he had spent the past two years looking for work.
His father is unemployed and his mother works at a restaurant.”
If I were to get out, I wouldn’t have the means to support my family,” he said.
