'I'll use my beauty to get what I want': The eye-opening travel plans of Ju Peng, 19

The 19-year-old - named by Weibo users as Ju Peng from Shanghai

A 19-year-old girl who is funding an epic trip across China by offering to date a different man in every city she stops in has created a sensation on the country's social networking website Weibo.

The girl - named by some Weibo users as Ju Peng from the eastern city of Shanghai - had posted an online ad looking for "temporary boyfriends" who must be "good looking, under 30, taller than 1.75 metres and, of course, rich".

Ju says: "They will fund my transport to their city and all my expenses while I am there and they need to be generous."

She adds: "In return, they get a whole night with me, my undivided attention, and a chance to show themselves off in the company of a truly beautiful girl."

Ju says she has already travelled all over eastern China this way and wants to see the rest of the country but does not have enough money to fund it herself.

She said: "It is sort of like hitch-hiking. It's nothing to be ashamed of."

But some critics are concerned about her welfare, while others say the deal is nothing but prostitution and have called for the ad to be taken down.

One Weibo user Hsin Tao said: "If she was taking cash we'd all know what to call her. This is a disgusting way to carry on."
