With an area of 9.6 million km2, the People’s Republic of China is the third largest country in the world with a wide variety of climates, landscapes and natural resources. The vast nation is composed of 56 ethnic groups, the largest being the Han, and has over 5000 years of history which have created a rich heritage of traditions. The hospitality and kindness of the Chinese to foreigners is admired on an international level. Nowadays China has the fastest growing economy in the world thanks to its strong commercial relations with other countries and it now welcomes many businessmen and workers from abroad. The foreign elite tend to live in the large cities of Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong which are known for their skyscrapers, numerous luxury properties and endless entertainment. In addition, many hospitals, prestigious hotels, banks and other amenities are exclusively aimed at the foreign community. The economic success of the country has created a highly developed luxury property market: for example the classic high-class homes or “Hutong” in the Chaoyang and Xicheng districts of Beijing, the European-style villas with gardens in the Jing’an and Xuhui areas of Shanghai and the exclusive duplex apartments in the residential towers of Hong Kong. These cities never sleep with their shopping centres, nightclubs, restaurants and wine bars. Those looking for more tranquil surroundings should consider the smaller towns of Dalian, Suzhou, Xiamen and Sanya which offer more natural landscapes and a traditional lifestyle. These are ideal places to buy a beautiful luxury villa.
