What are Anthony Zhao’s favorite cities to visit?
I like Kunming [China], because the weather is so ideal, like it’s eternally springtime. They have a great quality of life; people are more laidback than in other cities. You’ll see people sipping tea all day. Kunming is great because you can use this city as a base and go nearby for hiking, rock climbing and rainforest trekking.
I love San Francisco because the people are so friendly and it’s such a mixed culture. We really love to eat and, in San Francisco, even simple food tastes so good and fresh, and there’s so much organic produce. San Francisco has such great outdoors; you can drive for 20 minutes and find a mountain, the beautiful ocean, an oyster farm and Muir Woods. For me, it’s like heaven.
