China Central Television (CCTV) conducted a hidden camera investigation into prostitutes operating out of high class hotels and karaoke bars in the city of Dongguan.
The news program had hotel staff workers bring prospective customers into ballrooms where prostitutes available for sale would be displayed. In some hotels, the news reporters were brought to rooms where a one-way mirror displayed the prostitutes.
According to a report by the Los Angeles Times, the price to have sex with the prostitutes in Dongguan started at $100.
