Each of us is aware that time is money. When these two are on hand, you can enjoy vacationing. So, where do the people with fortunes go on vacation?

We have already started the countdown of the domestic destinations most liked by Chinese millionaires, according to the Hurun Report.

Now it is time to get to the cream of the crop.

Number 5: Shanghai

Nothing is as easy as to fall for Shanghai’s unique atmosphere, making your head swirl with the city’s non-stop metamorphoses, staggering pace of development and a very sophisticated culture mix of both East and West.

When you’re in Shanghai, you’re surely living China’s dream. The dynamic metropolis, where one in every 175 citizens has personal wealth of more than 10 million yuan, doesn’t lack ‘home-bred’ millionaires. Above that, the city is like a lighthouse to welcome the super rich holiday-makers from throughout China.

Anything you can think of is at hand in Shanghai: luxury shopping, family activities, pulsating nightlife, music happenings and much more.

Number 4: Qingdao

A westerner coming to the city of Qingdao, Shandong Province, will be amazed by a great deal of European architecture, making it hard to understand, in which part of the world you're actually are. For many years, the enchanting seaside city was Germany’s colony.

Qingdao is just the right place to quench your thirst, thanks to the iconic local beer named Tsingtao. The city also boasts the Qingdao International Beer Festival, which is, in a way, the city’s very own Oktoberfest.

Come and have taste of Qingdao!

Number 3: Yunnan

A whole province on the list? Surely, Yunnan Province is a special case for Chinese millionaires. And so is it for everybody else.

Where else in China life comes in such a plethora of cultures? Out of China's fifty-five officially recognised ethnic minorities, twenty-five can be found in Yunnan, giving the province additional cultural value in terms of colourful festivals, unique customs, versatile clothing styles and the cuisine which will surely take your taste buds into paradise of peculiar flavours.

It would be wise to start exploring Yunnan in the capital city of Kunming. One of the good destinations to continue could be the Old Town of Lijiang founded by the Naxi people. In 1997, this “Venice of the East” was claimed the UNESCO World Heritage site.

Number 2: Hong Kong

Number two is Asia's World City. Hong Kong is proud to have a nickname that perfectly reflects its multinational nature and diverse cultural influences the city has absorbed. The vibrant metropolis has always been loved by tourists, but be ready that Hong Kong may easily overwhelm.

Here, you can find all that money can buy. But if it’s not ultimate luxury that you’re looking for, visiting Hong Kong is full of simple, and therefore, not-so-pricey pleasures as well. Priceless memories are not necessarily at a high cost.

By the way, maybe some of you would like to experience Hong Kong in 24 hours?

Number 1: Sanya

And the winner is… Sanya!

A similar place can’t be found anywhere else in China. Probably, that’s why Sanya currently enjoys the status of the most popular domestic destination for the Chinese rich.

The atmosphere of the resort city, lying on the country’s southernmost point, at the tip of Hainan Island, is so different from other places in China. The lifestyle here seems to be so relaxed, easy and carefree that you may get lost in time and space finding yourself wondering if you’re really still in China, the land of Confucius, dragons and pagodas.

With 20 kilometres of sandy beaches, welcoming sunshine all year round, palm trees and an enchanting tropical oceanic landscape, Sanya is a perfect destination for devout beach holiday-makers.

Have a stroll in Sanya’s Luhuitou Park which is also known as Deer Turning Head Park, breathe in its romantic atmosphere derived from the touching ancient myth about invincible love and feel the love for Sanya arousing inside your heart.

The top 10 destinations so much loved by Chinese millionaires and domestic luxury travellers are full of diversity. Everyone will find their own place to travel under the China’s sunny or cloudy skies, no matter if you travel by train or private jet.
