Hoy Ping (now Kaiping) was one of the 4 counties in the hilly coast southwest of Canton (Guangzhou) and west of Hong Kong, who spoke a common dialect (Toisanese), from which many Chinese emigrated.
It is now classified as a city.
For a map (in Chinese) see:

Click on the map to see more detailed maps.
I visited some hamlets there in 2000.
