Chinese city names keep changing to make them more authentic, at least that's the way it seems in English. No way to figure out what's what anymore.

They changed around twenty years ago to match the more accurate pinyin system of writing Chinese in English letters.

I always just type ngzhou and put whatever letter is needed at the beginning, trying different vowels, and if that doesn't work, then eliminate the "g" and try again. I first tried zangzhous and then zengzhou and I got credit for that one. Gungzhou, Hangzhou, Tengzhou, Wengzhou, Changzhou, Yangzhou, Wenzhou, Quanzhou, Lanzhou, etc.

Dozens of roads, railways and expressways pass through the city. Also in the center part of the eastern part of China, like Chicago is in the Midwest of the US.

The capital of Henan is Luoyang, not Zhengzhou.

Nope, Zhengzhou is the capital of Henan province. Luoyang borders Zhengzhou to the east. From Wikipedia: "Zhengzhou . . . is is the capital and largest city of Henan province in north-central China."

May 31, 2018
Madras and Rangoon both work, but Benares does not. In this case the quizmaster needs to change the accepted type-ins.
