China - Differences Between North and South

There are many regional differences in China, which is the third largest country in the world area-wise.

One of these differences is the divide between the North and the South.

Whereas average Chinese tend to consider the Yangtze River as the line between the North and the South, scientifically speaking the line in question actually lies somewhere north of the Yangtze River and south of the Yellow River.

The difference between the lands of China south and north of this line are geographical as well as cultural.

Whereas the North features a large plain and has relatively dry weather, the South is more mountainous and sees more precipitation year-round.

The crop of the North is wheat while that of the South is rice.

The North was where the Chinese civilisation first developed, and the South was not opened till later. Partly because of this, the Northerners seem to be conservative in their outlook while the Southerners seem to have a stronger pioneering spirit.

No wonder then that while Hong Kong was where the Chinese connected with the West, Beijing stands as the proud capital of the Chinese nation.
