Northern Central Region of China.



Other destinations


This is one of the areas where Chinese civilisation first developed, along the Yellow River.


As anywhere in China, Mandarin is the lingua franca; nearly everyone can speak it. The Mandarin spoken in this region, especially around Beijing, is the standard dialect.

As elsewhere in China, English is not widespread but some people speak it quite well.
