Pity I didn't get the point for Turkmenbashi, but good quiz, you learn some things from it. Could Turkmenbashi be valid for the town name?

Tried Kaosiung, Caosiung, Kaoshiung, Caoshiung, the "h" was misplaced, close enough. And somehow I got Bhutan but have no idea how, I was trying to write something else but don't know what. That one was a freebie

Still lack of cities... I typed Hohhot/Baoding/Qiqihar for China, Taitung for Taiwan, Niigata/Satsumasendai/Naha/Nagasaki/Kagoshima for Japan and Rason for North Korea. Still nothing response.... Are these cities not qualify as cities?

I've taken the quiz for every continent and the world, and I absolutely respect the top 8 rule and am not complaining about it, but it annoys me when I put in a city in and it doesn't accept it. I know 5 in each of Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, and Thailand, and 3 in the DPRK, but...

Spelling error alert! Nakhchivan is the correct spelling I believe.
