UK cities are all so close together and aren't separated by vastly different climate zones or landscapes. If you remember Harbin has an ice festival and lots of Russian architecture, you're unlikely to get it mixed up with Wuhan or Guangzhou in a map quiz.

Agreed. It would be like expecting someone to identify every city in the Ruhr Valley on a map of Europe. They're far too close together for a map that big.

True, and other quizzes just count Guangzhou and Shenzhen as one city, so there's no real need for two dots in this quiz.

Just in case someone thought I was agreeing with the Macau post, I feel it's worth pointing out I was being sarcastic. On a map of this scale it would obviously be ridiculous to fit in a whole lot of PRD cities.

It looks a little bit too much like Guangzhou is an inland city when in reality it simply sits further back along the same bay Hong Kong is in.

It does kinda look like it's smack bang in the middle of Guangdong, but with this scale, can't really be helped.

Is there no possible way to add more cities? It's quite clear that Shenzhen can't be added, due to its proximity to Honk Kong and Guangzhou, but what about cities like Tianjin, Hangzhou, Suzhou (granted, Hangzhou and Suzhou are close to Nanjing), Qingdao, Jinan, Xiamen, etc.?

If it merely went by population, then, for sure, Tianjin, Hangzhou, and Shenzhen would be there. The problem is their proximity to bigger/more significant cities. Thus, Urumqi, Lhasa, and Harbin make the cut, since they are clearly distinguishable. Qingdao, Shenyang, Xiamen, and Kunming might be good adds.

I think the OP implied that Tianjin should be here, considering it is also a prominent city of China. But maybe it is very close to Beijing on the map this big so it didn't make the cut.

Any good device/historical/cultural thing you guys know of to not constantly switch up Chongqing and Chengdu? I know at least a little bit about all the other listed cities except Shenyang but placed that on correctly on the etymology being so different.

Here's a few distinctions between the two that might stick:

Chengdu - the capital of Sichuan province and famous for its panda breeding centre, it is the largest city of Western China. Its name and location have remained unchanged for thousands of years, and during the Warring States Period it was the capital of the Shu Kingdom, before conquest by the Qin.

Chongqing - sits in its own municipality, which has been split off from Sichuan (on a map quiz, you can use the borders to distinguish it from Chengdu). As a municipality it has a status among Chinese cities only shared by Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin. It sits on the Yangtze River and for that reason served as temporary capital during WWII, after the fall of Nanjing. I often think of it in terms of the string of major cities along the river - starting at the sea: Shanghai, Nanjing, Wuhan, Chongqing. Visually, it has a striking skyline tightly enclosed in a loop of the Yangtze.
