The "2011 Amazing China - The Most Attractive Chinese Cities for Foreigners," an online poll for foreigners to choose their favorite cities, invites all interested foreigners to cast their votes.

Last year, when the poll began, it attracted 179,000 votes from across the world, according to organizers.

This year, 353 cities at prefecture level or above (excluding HK, Macao and Taiwan) are on a list for the preliminary round of selection, which ends on Aug 30.

The top 20 cities with the most votes will enter the next round starting Sept 1, in which voters can vote online for a second time.

Selection of the final top 10 most attractive cities will be based on the results of the second round of online voting, votes by a group of 400 foreign talents and comments from a board of 40 foreign experts, including 34 Chinese Government Friendship Award recipients.

The final results will be announced in early January.

Four major criteria will be considered during the selection of candidate cities: policies attracting and serving foreign talents, the administrative environment, working environment and living conditions for foreign talents.

Organizers of this event include International Talent Magazine,, and China’s Research Association of International Talent Exchange and Development.
