Map of Chinese Provinces

China is a country made up of provinces. Unlike the U.S. administrative unit “state”, China uses “province” to represent the administrative unit next to the national level, and there are 34 totally. Most of it’s provincial-level units do not distinguish between ethnic groups, but since China is still a country with a large number of ethnic groups, some provinces are autonomous ones with a high concentration of ethnic minorities, such as Xinjiang (Uygur), Tibet (Tibetan), Inner Mongolia (Mongolian), Ningxia (Hui) and Guangxi (Zhuang). There are also special administrative regions including Hong Kong and Macao. On this map, you can find all of the provincial administrative units in China.

Something you can't find on the map- The eastern coastal provinces in China are relatively developed, while the western provinces are relatively backward, subject to the restrictions of regional transportation, population, and production resources. In recent years, the Chinese government has gradually stepped up the development of the western provinces, and government actions to develop the western economy have been carried out.
