Alphabetical list of all cities and townships (Tongyong Pinyin)[edit]

Tongyong Pinyin was the standard of Chinese romanization of Taiwan between 2002 and 2008. Although the standard was shifted to Hanyu Pinyin from January 1, 2009, the change to signs and documents using Tongyong Pinyin is not complete. There are still some signs using Tongyong Pinyin on highways and roads.
