Papillionaire’s Row – Tseung Kwan O’s Papillions’ development combines absolute luxury with homeliness

Moneyopolis- which Metropolis has more mega-rich residents than any other place in the planet?

Much has been said and lists have been created by numerous groups and publications with their own ranking of which city tops other cities in terms of its Gross Domestic Product, number of millionaires and all other varying elements.
