Landing in the same position as last year, China's Hong Kong remained eighth on the list, in which New York City claimed the crown with $3 trillion in total wealth as well as 65 billionaires and over 380,000 millionaires.

Dubbed the "High-tech Capital of China", Shenzhen, located in South China's Guangdong province, came in 20th on the list with a total wealth of $750 billion.

Tokyo came in second with a total wealth of $2.5 trillion, followed by the San Francisco Bay Area and London, both of which held $2.4 trillion in total wealth.

The "total wealth" mentioned in the report referred to the private wealth held by all individuals including property, cash, equities and business interests. Government funds were excluded from the figures, which were for June this year.

The construction started building guomao in 1984 left of the picture.Its called da bei yao. The buildings on right on the hand came after 1994.Even some of them were not there until 2005 , my last visit. Right behind the tall building gong yi meishu xueyuan dormitory where my wife study and live in dormitory.I use to ride bicycle from wangfujing and stay there almost everyday. Far in hujia lou the tall building called jing guang zhong xin was my work place in 90.That was then the tallest building in China.So many memory there in 1984- 87.We walked almost every corner there in the summer evening. Nostalgia!!
