I missed Switzerland... The quiz shouldn't have Hong Kong & Macau included as the hint says it's only about mainland China

Mainland Chinese tourists. And it asks you to "name the countries". Neither Hong Kong or Macau count as countries. I think the "mainland" is to stall the arguments involving Taiwan.

Mainland China is a geopolitical area under the direct jurisdiction of the People's Republic of China. It excludes special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macao. Has nothing to do with Taiwan and a lot to do with why Hong Kong and Macao are on the list.

Neither Macau nor Hong Kong are part of Mainland China. Mainland doesn't include the Special Administrative Regions. And Taiwan just straight up isn't China. It's a completely different country with state sovereignty and its own currency regardless of what the Chinese government may try and claim

I think it is a bit strong to say 'has nothing to do with Taiwan' since clearly mainland China does not include Taiwan, no matter what one's views are of their post-war separation politically. HK & Macau are SARs, as you said, and would be apart from consideration - in addition to Taiwan.

Yes, I strongly say "has nothing to do with Taiwan" because it doesn't . Because the phrase 'mainland China' in this quiz has nothing to do with Taiwan. I know, because I made the quiz. This quiz used to have Hong Kong and Macao as travel destinations and therefore the quiz also included 'Mainland China' (not implying to Taiwan like 'sillie' suggests but to actual Mainland China and mainlandchinese tourists).

I live in Hong Kong and I don't really accept the mainlanders. However, Hong Kong is still in China and in 2047, Hong Kong will not be a SAR and be a part of China. Therefore, Hong Kong and Macau is not a country. Moreover, Taiwan is a country and has it's own government, citizenship, military etc.

Did QuizMaster take Hong Kong and Macau off the quiz? Maybe you should remove the caveat.

To embrace the Chinese culture you could even accept "Chinese Taipei"

That's just the olympics and world politics occasionally... nobody calls it that, and nobody regards it like some renegade province unless they work for the government.

Good they shouldn't be included since they are officially part of China now and no longer "countries".

You see Chinese tourists all over the place these days and all over Europe, too, even small East European countries without many other tourists. But I didn't guess Switzerland.

Very surprised not to see the UK here. I live here and I know we have a huge Chinese community. Or is that immigration and therefore a whole different thing?

Japan still has an image problem. Lots of people including my husband who is from Shanghai refuse to go to Japan since they have never officially apologized for the Nanjing massacre in WW2.

Interesting fact if you look up the Shanghai World financial centre the original design had the top as a circle but there was large protests against that since the architect was Japanese and people said it would look like the Japanese flag. The design had to be changed to look more like a square.

Indeed there is quite a bit still. Correction the architect was American but the developer was Japanese/American. :)

I worked for a major airline for years and a few years ago we hired a number of people from China, South Korea, Philippines, and Japan and put them all in the same training class. The Chinese, Korean, and Filipino new hires refused to attend class with the Japanese.
