Disambiguator[edit]

@Philg88, Anna Frodesiak, and Colipon: I've moved the article back to its original title Wuzhishan City, because using Hainan as disambiguator does not work in this case, as the city and the mountain it's named after are both in Hainan. See similar cases of Huangshan / Huangshan City, Jinggangshan / Jinggangshan City, Hami Prefecture / Hami City, etc. -Zanhe (talk) 06:49, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Hmmmmm, tricky situation. On one hand, Wuzhishan, Hainan is good because it gets some distance for the word "city", but there is the ambiguity. Then again, the other article is called Wuzhi Mountain so it is not that ambiguous. On the other hand, Wuzhishan City is good because visitors clearly know it's not about the mountain, and there is the lead and lead image which clarifies. I know! Let's call it Wuzhishan Prefecture-Level City and Greater Area That is Named After a Mountain But Not a Mountain But Includes a Mountain and a City Which is Really a Town That is Not Actually on the Mountain. It is quite fitting, just like calling the equivalent of Canada's Boxco something like China National Box Manufacturing and Assembly Industry Conglomerate Concern Company Limited.
