2-digit postcode areas China (defined through the first two postcode digits)

Postal codes (邮政编码 or 邮编/郵政編碼 or 郵編; Pinyin: yóuzhèng biānmǎ or yóubiān) in China are a numeric six-digit system for the whole country.

The first two digits show the province, province-equivalent municipality, or autonomous region; the third digit the postal zone; the fourth digit the prefectures or prefecture-level city; the last two digits the delivery post office.

Hong Kong and Macau, which have their own postal systems, have Chinese postcodes.[1][2] However, they are not widely used. Postal code for Hong Kong is 999077 and Macau 999078 which are given by China mainland. In fact it is not necessary to fill in the postal code for these two regions when mailing.[3]
