Chongqing's administrators painted a bright picture of the world's most populous city.

According to a new blueprint released at a government conference yesterday, in 2015, Chongqing's GDP per capita will reach USD 8,000, twice as much as current level; the city's regional GDP will by then reach 1500 billion yuan, surpassing Shanghai's current level; the income gap between urban and rural residents will be shrunk to 2.5:1. These projections, once achieved, will make Chongqing "one of the happiest regions" in China. Or at least the Chongqing government officials would like you to believe so.

The big image shows a bride in an angel wing dress descending by a wire at a local wedding ceremony. The groom who choreographed the thing said it took him three months to come up with the idea.
