Northern Guangdong, commonly referred to as Yuebei (Chinese: 粤北; pinyin: Yuèběi), is a region of northern Guangdong province, in southern China. It is a region encompassing mountainous and hilly terrain, and includes the region of Guangdong north of the Tropic of Cancer.
Yuebei is a multiethnic region, with a large population speaking Yuebei native languages (粵北土話／Yuebei Tuhua), Cantonese, Hakka, among others. While it has a history of engaging with variously government/NGO-led poverty alleviation projects since the 1980s, the region is increasingly becoming a location for the development of industrial parks, tourism, and organic food production.
