BANGKOK — Unlike Beijing — noisy, crowded, gagging on pollution — China’s newest prefecture is tropical and breezy. In a nation of 1.3 billion, it is virtually uninhabited. It's more than 99.9 percent water. All of its residents (under 1,000 people) could fit comfortably inside one of Beijing’s popular nightclubs. Beijing calls it Sansha. Others call it expansionism that makes Putin’s Crimea grab look like child’s play.
