In the spa which is known as one of the most luxurious spas in Beijing, the full body massage treatment in a private room with a bathtub is 2,300 RMB (about $375) per 1.5 hour. China has pledged to double household incomes over the coming decade in a bid to close a wealth gap so wide it threatens social stability. Although the proportion of extreme poverty has fallen over recent decades, about 12 percent of the country's 1.3 billion people still live on less than $1.25 per day, according to a 2013 United Nations report.
