It must have appeared on may sites. Laughing

A little add-on to the names.

Place names at the first level in China come with postfix of either Province or Autonomous Region apart from the four cities, namely, Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin and Chongqing.

E.g.

Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region
Xinjiang Uigur Autonomous Region
Tibet Autonomous Region
Guangxi Autonomous Region of Zhuang Nationality
Ningxia Autonomous Region of Hui Nationality

Those regions have the largest concentration of ethnic groups.

The rest are provinces. E.g. Jiangsu Province

I just want to note that kennedy is not skennedy. I am skennedy and I have students from the East coast of China to the far West and in the South as well as the North. I still communicate with several even though I have not been back since 2002. I am retired but teach ESL part-time now. China is as diverse as the USA- the landscape and the people . I'll answer what I can about the country and I really like the colorful map of the Provinces. Thanks
