Foreign visitors praise Wuhan's River-lake Tour
"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.
