Hangzhou topped other mainland cities as the most suitable place for living in retirement, according to an article in the Chinese edition of Fortune magazine published yesterday.
Hangzhou is followed by Qingdao, Chengdu, Zhuhai and Xiamen as the most suitable cities for retirees. Hangzhou has occupied the top spot for three years in a row.
The magazine polled 25,000 senior executives chosen from its reader database and received 1,038 responses to its questionnaire from May 18 to June 18. The questionnaire covered quality of living, social welfare, and cultural environment.
However, some people joked about the list. One twitter named “Youzi9811” said Hanghzou is hotter than Guangdong in summer and is colder than Northeast China in winter. Its traffic is worse compared with Beijing and its housing price is more expensive than that of Shanghai.
