China is a nation that is diverse in its peoples and customs. It also has a secretive air about it. But with the pervasive nature of the internet, secrets and little known facts can find their way to the light of day. Here are some fascinating facts about China that some of you may not have heard about...until now.
China's urbanization is moving forward at a phenomenal rate. If it continues at the current rate, China's urban population will reach 926 million by 2025 and hit one billion by 2030. It is estimated that China will have 219 cities with more than one million inhabitants by 2025. To accommodate all these people, China will have to build 50,000 skyscrapers, or the equivalent of ten New York Cities.
