Are their other Cities in China?

There are different types of China cities and this page lists those in the mainland which are graded as being "prefecture-level" or above.

"Prefecture-level" means these cities are, at a minimum, administered directly by their provincial government.

If you can't find a Chinese city in our list it likely means that it is a "county-level city", meaning it is governed by a "parent" prefecture-level city.

An example of this is Rui'an City in Zhejiang province which is governed under Wenzhou City, rather than at the provincial level.

Note also that this list doesn't include Hong Kong, Macau or the various cities in Taiwan.
