I had previously added an entry to the suggestions wiki page, but I did
not see it in this email:

* University
  (Shanghai is famous for its universities)

To pick one at random, the "University of Shanghai for Science and
Technology" is a place in Shanghai; I think that meets the requirement
for "physical or human geography".

It's a point of pride that Shanghai has so many renowned universities,
so I think it's a good choice and one well worth considering.
