We have no idea what part of China our Lily Kate will be from, but it's interesting to compare some statistics between China and the United States. China is a country of 3,696,100 sq. miles; not much larger than the US, which encompasses 3,537,441 sq. miles. The difference in population however, is pretty staggering; China has a population of 1,307,743,319 as compared to the U.S. number of 296,410,404. That means that China has more than 4 times the population of the United States, in roughly the same amount of space.
When we travel to China, we know that we will be flying into Beijing, which is is the capital and the second largest city of China. The total area of Beijing is approximately 16,800 sq km, and has over 7.23 million people, 3 million of which are temporary residents. The temporary residents are comprised of business persons, teachers and students. Beijing's permanent residents are from all of the different ethnic groups found in China with the Han's comprising over 96% of the population. Mandarin Chinese is the language spoken in Beijing, with Beijing's dialect being the standard form of Mandarin.
