For­eign vis­i­tors praise Wuhan's River-lake Tour

Changjiang Weekly - - CONTENTS - By Cheng Yan & Zhong Qinru

"East Lake is re­ally big and beau­ti­ful with lo­tus flow­ers here and there. The land­scape de­sign of Bi­tan Guanyu is unique, a typ­i­cal Chi­nese style," re­marked Thomas when he was strolling on the East Lake Green­way on Sept. 11. Thomas, from Ber­lin, Ger­many, was trav­el­ling on a cruise ship from Chongqing to Shang­hai, to­gether with 260 other se­nior vis­i­tors from coun­tries like Ger­many, Aus­tria, and the U.S.A.

Wuhan is the fifth stop of their Yangzte River tour in China. They landed at Jiang­han Cus­toms House, vis­ited the Chime Bells at Hubei Pro­vin­cial Mu­seum, and took a walk on the East Lake Green­way. Ac­cord­ing to the di­rec­tor of Swan In­ter­na­tional Travel Ser­vice of Wuhan Tourism De­vel­op­ment and In­vest­ment Group Co., Ltd., this is the sec­ond ma­jor for­eign tourist team to visit in Septem­ber.

Wu Zhan­lai, vice chief man­ager of Wuhan Tourism De­vel­op­ment and In­vest­ment Group Co., Ltd., said that since April, the river-lake tour has gained pop­u­lar­ity, thanks to the Tourism Min­is­ters' Meet­ing of the SCO Mem­ber States. This con­fer­ence greatly pro­moted Hubei's in­ter­na­tional fame and the in­creas­ing de­vel­op­ment of the tourism in­dus­try in the Yangtze River eco­nomic belt.
