Thank you davidyao! So we have pretty high certainty for 2020 through 2024.

2020 - Quanzhou: Song and Yuan Maritime Trade Center
2021 - Badain Jaran Desert—Towers of Sand and Lakes [+ Minor Boundary Modification Hubei Shennongjia]
2022 - Ancient Tea Plantations of Jingmai Mountain in Pu'er
2023 - Migratory Bird Sanctuaries along the Coast of Yellow Sea-Bohai Gulf of China (Phase II)
2024 - The Ancient Waterfront Towns in the South of Yangtze River

The "offcial English name" for Quanzhou is 泉州:宋元中国的世界海洋商贸中心(QUANZHOU:EMPORIUM OF THE WORLD IN SONG-YUAN CHINA)

2024 TBD

Can anyone explain the two Chinese Silk Road tentative sites? Is it a QA problem with Unesco, with us or is this intentional? Or is one a former site and should be flagged as such?

Unesco:
2016 - The Chinese Section of the Silk Roads
http://whc.unesco.org/en/tentativelists/6093

2008 - Chinese Section of the Silk Road: Land routes in Henan Province, Shaanxi Province, Gansu Province, Qinghai Province, Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, and Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region; Sea Routes in Ningbo City, Zhejiang Province and Quanzhou City, Fujian Province - from Western-Han Dynasty to Qing Dynasty
http://whc.unesco.org/en/tentativelists/5335

The 2016 seems to be a more recent incarnation of the 2008 one.

We just follow the UNESCO list is and they just represent what China tells them their Tentative List is at a given moment.

Being confined within China's border, the only travel choice I have is to tick different components of WHS as well as the many TWHS.
In my search, I found that we miss Jianglangshan in our map. Also the current site website listed is not working. Here are the official sites of each component - except for Danxiashan, they have English language but limited info compare to Mandarin.

1. & 2. Chishui - West Section andEast Seaction
(Tourism Site URL) english.csdxcn.com
3. & 4. Taining - North Section and South Section
URL: www.taininggeopark.com
5. Langshan
URL: www.langshanhong.com
6. Danxiashan
URL: www.toursdxs.com
7. Longhushan - Longhushan Section
URL: www.longhushan.com.cn
8. Longhushan - Guifeng Section
URL: www.guifengly.com
9. Jianglangshan (missing in map)
N28 31 44.4, E118 33 36
URL: www.jlsnbd.com

Surprisingly, most of these are easily accessible and close to some airport. Five components (Taining North and South, Longhushan, Guifeng, Jianglangshan) in particular can be ticked in a 3day weekend if planned properly.
