1. Shanghai (17.3%)

“Respondents felt, first of all, that Shanghai’s sexiness derived from the city’s modern temperament, developed economy and general prosperity. Second, even those who hadn’t been to Shanghai had certainly heard about the Shanghai Bund, Oriental Pearl Tower, Huangpu River and so on…Shanghai’s sexiness comes from these ‘symbolic sights.’ Interestingly enough, respondents felt that the Shanghai World Expo contributed to the city’s overall sexiness.”

“Because of its celebrities and internationalism, Hong Kong ranks second, with 8.4% of respondents considering it China’s sexiest city.”
