China Unicorn, on its official microblog, said that it has received over 300,000 order requests in the first week after it began accepting online reservations. Beijing was the place from where most number of online reservations are received and the two cities that follow Beijing are, largest provinces Guangdong and Shandong, and then the city of Shanghai.
