    I prefer the north to the south for the accent. Chengde sounds interesting.

      In Hong Kong Cantonese is the language of choice and actually English 2nd. Little Mandarin is spoken in Hong Kong compared to mainland China, Taiwan or Singapore.

      It's true that nowhere in China can match the culture and history of Beijing. If that's what you want out of a trip to China, Beijing wins!

      Thanks for the comment Sam, absolutely worth a mention indeed. It was the capital during parts of the Ming dynasty after all!
