18 February 2014 Last updated at 20:10 GMT

Internet users in China have taken to social media to write positive things about the city of Dongguan after state media exposed widespread prostitution there.

The city's police chief has been sacked and the government is cracking down on the sex trade following the expose.

But some social media users have been attempting to show that there is more to the town than sex.

Anne-Marie Tomchak from #BBCtrending reports on the 'Dongguan you may not know'.
