    Chinese tourists: Why are Americans so poor and can hardly afford to go on vacation?
    Americans: Because our government spends all our money on military bases around the world and bombing other countries instead of making the livelihood of the average American better

    With $20,000 you can rent monthly a most luxurious home with a big courtyard and swimming pool in Pakistan.

    the whole luxury spending and age difference between US and China is a cultural thing. In China, your parents money are your money because most of them are from the single child policy, and culture has a deep root in this. It's a different story for the US. exception are there but generally this is true for most people.

    I think a Country's economic strength is best defined by its middle class or by the class of which the majority of people fall into. I believe it's more important to focus on the number of people not living in poverty or have had upward mobility per capita in any country.

    This totally against normal Chinese philosophy. These hotels only cater to a fraction of "top tier" consumer in China. The vast majority of Chinese do not enjoy this level of excess or opulence.

    Where does China find time to open luxury hotels when they're busy harvesting organs from the Falun Gong while they're alive, running the concentration camps for the Uygur, and beating down students in Hong Kong? The CCP is one of the (but probably number one) worst human rights offenders in the world and I don't care if they have luxury hotels. I hope Trump keeps the pressure on China...because nothing good ever comes out of the CCP. Nothing. It's tyranny at its finest.

      Shenzhen is just regular city in Guangdong province. So we don't count Shenzhen as single market. It is in stats in Guangdong province. Shanghai is a special administration city same level as province. And Beijing, Tianjin , Chongqing, are the rest of other 3 special city.
