China trip – 9. China’s super rich

Around the corner from my youth hostel were many luxury hotels.  Some more from typical western type places, and some with more of the character of China itself.

As well as luxury cars parked outside the hotels, some big hotels have large windowed showrooms being rented out to sell new prestige cars.

Also, this vintage vehicle was there.   I think this belonged to a previous leader of China, maybe even Chairman Mao.
