Their footprints not only covered municipalities like Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin, the developed coastal provinces such as Shangdong, JiangSu, Zhejiang and Guangdong, the capital cities of inland provinces, Sichuan, Shanxi, Hubei, Hunan and Guangxi, but also the less developed rural area of Jiangxi Province.
