China on the move

A growing number of wealthy Chinese are choosing to live and work abroad.

Almost two-thirds of Chinese with more than 10 million yuan ($1.6 million) in the bank have emigrated, or are planning to, according to Hurun, a research firm that studies trends in China.

The idea is less popular among the super rich. Only a third of those worth more than 100 million yuan ($16 million) say they want to emigrate.

And moving abroad doesn't mean wealthy Chinese are leaving for good -- only 15% are planning to give up their nationality.

So where are they heading? Europe has become more popular recently, while more traditional destinations are still proving attractive. Here are the hotspots.
