Trying to make a guess.

"Northeast" - examples Shenyang, Dalian, Changchun, Harbin. Probably 3 provinces of Manchuria.

"North" - examples Beijing, Tianjin, Jinan, Qingdao, Shijiazhuang.

That covers Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei and Shandong.

"East" - examples Shanghai, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Ningbo.

That would be Shanghai, Jiangsu and Zhejiang.

"South" - examples Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Fuzhou, Xiamen, Nanning, Sanya.

That means Guangdong, Guangxi, Hainan, Fujian

"Central" - examples Wuhan, Changsha, Zhengzhou, Hefei, Nanchang.

That includes Hubei, Hunan, Henan, Anhui, Jiangsu.

"West" - examples Chongqing, Chengdu, Xian, Kunming, Urumqi, Lhasa.

That includes Yunnan, Sichuan, Chongqing, Shaanxi, Tibet, Xinjiang.

And now to borders.

Is Guizhou to be classified with "West", "South" or "Central"?

Is Shanxi "North" along with Hebei or "West" along with Shaanxi?

Is Inner Mongolia "North" or "West"?

wouldn't it be better to accept any cities under provinces of that perspective region...rather than exclusively provincial capitals and big ones?

for example

"Northeast" - examples Liaoning, Jilin, and Heilongjiang

"East" - examples Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, and etc


Edit: then sticky all the provincial capitals and big ones in their perspective region.

put all the threads on the front page like "Forum Related Issues 论坛有关的问", China's Economy - News and Projects III,‎ and Technology and Scientific development of China into the right section under city hall or Tea House. If not eliminate tea house and put all the thread on the front page?

Guiyang has been seen in West.

That leaves 2 other regions on the borders of West.

Is Shanxi West like Shaanxi, or North like Hebei?

Is Inner Mongolia West or North?

Actually I combined Southwest and Northwest because there're not many posts in Northwest. I may split them later when the post number grows.

Guangxi

Can you explain the division of Guangxi between South and West?

Considering Nanning is an example of South - but Wuzhou and many others are seen in West?

^^ good finding. Guangxi shoule be in the South instead of West. Fixed.
Could you write all the provincional capitals under each region. Lanzhou, Guiyang, Xining, Yinchuan aren't under the WEST section, same with Taiyuan and Hohhot under the NORTH section. Please place them as sticky in their repsective forums.

+1

To promoto big cites is good, but not better to promote provinces instead

West should be divided into Southwest and Northwest, big different two areas.

Chongqing, Sichuan, Hubei, Hunan, Guizhou, Yunnan


Northeast(东北)
Liaoning, Jilin, Heilongjiang, Inner Mongolia

Currently only tier-I cities are made sticky. Provincional capitals are not always having good development or importance in their area. For tier classification, please check city index thread at,
