Jiangsu. It's comparable to many Eastern European countries.

Guangdong has a higher GDP per capita then Jiangsu, but I don't think that wealth is as spread out. Plus Guangdong is pretty big. The outlier areas of the province are very poor.

Tianjin is not even a tier one city. Its high GPD per capita is due to investment in recent years.

The tier one cities are: Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen.

The most developed provinces are: Guangdong, Jiangsu, and Zhejiang. As Mattks pointed out, Guangdong has some poor areas but Jiangsu has decent development everywhere.

Well, Tianjin, Beijing, Chongqing, and Shanghai are essentially province-level (省级行政区) as administrative divisions, so I think it's understandable why the OP wrote them as is.

Including those, it's Shanghai. Not including those, Jiangsu. Tianjin and Beijing might have higher GDPs per capita, but they belie the fact that they blow, though Tianjin much less so than Beijing.

Guangdong doesn't have a higher GDP per capital than Jiangsu. Jiangsu is almost 20% higher than GD. GD is not even number 2 or number 3.

And as you said, Jiangsu does not have any poor cities or counties. while Guangdong has plenty.

Thanks for the correction. Looks like Wikipedia is incorrect. Guangdong is 4-5th in GDP per capita. I figured with Guangzhou and the outskirts of Shenzhen, it would be wealthier.

but the northern Jiangsu is very poor.
almost all Province in China has its poor counties, even Zhejiang which claims that there is no poor county in the land(otherwise there are 16 Province -level poor counties in Jiangsu). the south part of Zhejiang is not advanced as the nort. counties like Kaihua, Taishun are not rich.

so if you ask which Province is the most advanced in China, Canton.

by the way, if you ask which part of China is most advance. i will say "Wu" which include Shanghai, north part of Zhejiang, south part of Jiangsu. people live in Wu speak Wu Chinese which is a distinct language.

Until it formally declares independence and no longer considered a province of both PRC and ROC, the most advanced is Taiwan.
