How do they define a "city" in China?
It's hard to figure out a Chinese city. It seems many of these cities aren't really cities. They're more like counties or states, with a lot of rural areas thrown in. But then there are "real" cities, with some of them carrying same names as the larger areas in which they're located. Isn't this terribly confusing? You think you're traveling to a city, quite clear on that, while in fact there may be two entities that are quite different from each other.
