Shanghai has topped a list of the “sexiest” cities in China, with respondents saying that it was more than twice as sexy as its nearest competitor, Hong Kong.
In a survey featured on Ifeng.com, the website of Hong Kong-based Phoenix television, 17.3 per cent of respondents from 30 Chinese cities said that Shanghai, with a renovated Bund, gleaming Expo infrastructure and stunning skyline, was China’s sexiest destination.
Hong Kong’s international vibe and celebrity appeal earned it a second-place finish, while Chongqing’s beautiful girls, good food and mountain scenery saw it placed in third place.
China’s capital city, Beijing, was ranked fourth, with respondents praising its variety, its rich history, the legacy of the 2008 Olympic Games and the spirit of its residents. Rapidly growing Chinese holiday destination Sanya was ranked eighth, and the country’s gambling haven Macau came in tenth place.
