Get all regions inside a given one

Using the `childRegions` method, implement on your website a convenient choice of the city for the user: at the beginning he will choose his country, then the division, and then the city.

If your site shows search results linked to a region (for example, a list of profiles on a dating site), then you can add a list of child regions at the bottom of your pages so that the user can refine his search.
