Spread of the Yue (Cantonese) language

This smaller map removes the countries where Yue (Cantonese) is dominant. This map therefore only shows 5.9% of all speakers of Yue (Cantonese). The territories omitted are Hong Kong and China.

Yue Chinese, more commonly known as Cantonese, is most commonly spoken in the province of Guangdong, and the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau. As well as many speakers in other parts of Asia, there has been emigration from this part of China to Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia, so there are large Cantonese-speaking populations in these countries.

Territory size shows the proportion of all people who speak Yue (Cantonese) as a first language that live in that territory.
