Ren Zheng (27), Han, noodle chef

I’m from Shanxi province, and I came here in Xilingol on this March, because my relative lives here and needed my help.

I use an iPhone 5S, and use Kuaishou app (biggest social video sharing app in lower tier cities) to watch videos. For a young person like me, here in Xilingol, there’s not much to do.

Wurentuya (28) Mongol, museum manager

I was born in Xanadu and I live here. I used to own my own retail shop, but I quit it two years ago, and now I started working here at Yuan dynasty cultural center of Xanadu. I love my work. I use Vivo phone, and my favorite app is Meitu. I love taking photos, either selfies and the scenery of Xanadu.
