South has Hongkong and north has Hegang.

Hongkong is very famous in the world and almost every one knows it. Hongkong is in the south of China, but in the northeast of China is Hegang. Hegang is a small city in Heilongjiang province , I think you must  hear of  it for the first time, but I am familiar with it because it is my hometown. I was born there and I have lived there till now.
Hegang is a border city next to Russia. Heilongjiang River  joints Russian and Hegang. Every spring peole like going to Mingshan Town beside  the Heilongjiang River to eat the fish , which is caught from the Heilongjiang River that  has just melt after the long winter, so the fish is very fresh and delicious. 
Standing at the side of the Heilongjiang River, you can enjoy the beautiful endless  running water, at the same time you feel broad-minded. At the other side of the river is a small town of Russia. From this side you can clearly see the house, cars and people of Russia and so on .
Hegang City has a population of about over 1 million, it is mainly located on hilly ground, so in the city, there are many gentle slopes everywhere. When we see many floods  and some infectious diseases somewhere in the south of China on TV, the people here all sigh that though our small town isn't rich enough , it is a very good place, there is no natural disaster, maybe it is just a joke.
Hegang is a coal city. It covers about 1500 square kilometers .Though Hegang City is small, if walking along the street downtown, you will feel the taste of morden city. Tall buildings , wide roads, gorgeous street lamps and busy traffic must make you feel you are in Hongkong, but the  price here is much lower than Hongkong, because Hegang City is still a developing city.
At the south edge of China's mainland  is Hongkong, and at the north edge of  China's mainland is Hegang.
Welcome to my hometown to have a look at the small border city

Is the North  Pole Village  not faraway from your hometown, it's said it's also a beautiful place, with many people love to travel and sight-seeing?

The north Pole Village is the northernest village in China. It is also beside the Heilongjiang River next to Russia. It is a border village in Heilongjiang Province and the northest place where people live.The North Pole Village is upper stream of The Heilongjiang River, and Hegang is downstream . If I go there, I need to take the train about 30 hours. It's a pity that I haven't been there. If possible, I must go and have a look at the northernest village of China.

Harbin is near to my hometown. I need to take about 10 hours' train to get there. I'm similar to you, when I was young, I heard the storytelling too. It was told by Wanggang. Could you tell me if you are Chinese or foreigner? I guess you are Chinese.

Since you know Heilongjiang Province, I think you must know Harbin, the capital city of Heilongjiang Province. My hometown is in the north of Harbin, you can search the map for my small city.

    I'm sorry I can't understand your views. In China, respecting the old is Chinese traditional virtue. I think this is the disagreement of different cultures.

    As the lone foreigner in my neck of the woods, I get the exact opposite reaction. I am a bit older than most of my students'... parents, therefore they feel they have to help me to death, whether I need help or not! And they would, if I'd let them.
