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?

2016 - The Chinese Section of the Silk Roads

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

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)
3. & 4. Taining - North Section and South Section
5. Langshan
6. Danxiashan
7. Longhushan - Longhushan Section
8. Longhushan - Guifeng Section
9. Jianglangshan (missing in map)
N28 31 44.4, E118 33 36

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.

Awaiting Advisory Body Evaluations [2020 - 2021]
- Quanzhou: Emporium of the World in Song-Yuan China
- Badain Jaran Desert - Towers of Sand and Lakes

Official Nomination for 2022
- The Ancient Tea Forest Cultural Landscape of Jingmai Mountain

In the pipeline
Migratory Bird Sanctuaries along the Coast of Yellow Sea-Bohai Gulf of China [Phase II]
The Ancient Waterfront Towns in the South of Yangtze River

Upcoming Priority Candidates?

Recent reports (linked below) indicate archaeologists at Sanxingdui have made new discoveries and that construction has begun on the "Sanxingdui National Heritage Park", which includes a new museum. Additionally, based on Els and Zoe's reviews, this nomination might have full support from ICOMOS when it comes to OUV. Lastly, the Beijing Central Axis nomination seems to be making progress on formulating a nomination, at least the early stages. Recent renovation work on the Drum Tower have been completed.

- Sanxingdui Culture [full name: Archaeological Sites of the Ancient Shu State: Site at Jinsha and Joint Tombs of Boat- shaped Coffins in Chengdu City, Sichuan Province; Site of Sanxingdui in Guanghan City, Sichuan Province 29C.BC-5C.BC]

- The Central Axis of Beijing [components: Yongding Gate, Temple of Heaven, Temple of Agriculture, Tian'anmen Square complex, Imperial Ancestral Temple, Altar of the Land and Grain, the Forbidden City, Jingshan Hill, Bell Tower, Drum Tower, Nanluoguxiang, Yandai Bystreet historic area, and the Beihai water system]
