Some relevant page view data by country from https://stats.wikimedia.org/wikimedia/squids/SquidReportPageViewsPerCountryBreakdown.htm:

  • China: 52% enwiki, 7.8% jpwiki, only 5.6% zhwiki
  • Hong Kong: 68.4% zhwiki, 27.2% enwiki, 2.4% jpwiki
  • Taiwan: 88.1% zhwiki, 8.9% enwiki

The interesting thing is that zhwiki usage within China seems to be rather low. Most usage seems to be from outside China, primarily Taiwan, but also Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Macau.

zhwiki has been (mostly) blocked in China since May 2015.

Most usage seems to be from outside China, primarily Taiwan, but also Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Macau.

Yes - more precisely, in July 2016, 52% of pageviews came from Taiwan, 19% from Hong Kong, 9% from the US, 3% from Malaysia.
