A US travel magazine has listed Guangzhou and Shenzhen among the worlds top 20 most unfriendly cities, reports the Southern Daily, the official Guangdong Communist Party newspaper.
Conde Nast Traveler, a New York City-based luxury travel magazine, recently released the result of a survey on the worlds 20 friendliest and 20 unfriendliest cities based on responses from 46,476 of its readers. Guangzhou and Shenzhen, both located in southern Chinas Guangdong province, are ranked 11th and 14th on the most unfriendly cities list. In relation to Guangzhou, Readers think southern Chinas largest city is not as tourist-friendly as Beijing, Hong Kong, or Shanghai, and that may be because its a better fit for business travelers. Readers say the not nice city is best for work only because it is busy and extremely crowded. Another big business city (the Shenzhen Stock Exchange is here), Shenzhen didnt win over our readers. Though some like the shopping and spas and the proximity to Hong Kong, others complained it was too crowded and dirty, winding up at visiting only if I have to, the magazine said.
