Zhangzhou is also spelled Chang-chow or Changchow, and is also written as Chiang-chew or Chiang Chew in Hokkien. Hokkien is the main Min Nan dialect spoken in Zhangzhou. It is the same Hokkien dialect from which Penang Hokkien as well as the Hokkien of Medan, Kedah and Taiping is derived. In comparison, Singapore Hokkien is derived from the Hokkien of Xiamen.

Today Zhangzhou comprises 2 districts, namely Longwen District and Xiangcheng District. It also includes 8 counties and 1 county-level city, which are Longhai City, Changtai County, Dongshan County, Hua'an County, Nanjing County, Pinghe County, Yunxiao County, Zhangpu County and Zhao'an County.
