So in doing some research on Asian planned cities, I did find two sites in China inscribed on the World Heritage Site list for urban planning and the principles of feng shui
: the city of Ping Yao
and the ancient villages of Xidi and Hongcun
. Would either of these sites work as Asian representatives for this urban planning category to diversify from the number of sites already listed from the Europe and North America and the Latin America and the Caribbean regions?
I couldn't find any good examples already on the list from India, though I did note that Jaipur and Delhi (including part of New Delhi) are on India's tentative list; no love for Jamshedpur, though. China also has the Central Axis of Beijing on its tentative list as another representative of urban planning.
Sorry for the confusion, Assif. I was thinking in terms of the UNESCO WHS regions, in which Israel is categorized with Europe and North America, rather than actual geographic regions, in which Israel falls within the Levant/Middle East/Southwest Asia (depending on who is naming the region).
