Efforts Enhanced for Tourism at Dalian

Dalian, a coastal resort in northeast China's Liaoning Province, is making vigorous efforts to attract both domestic and inbound tourists.

The city, known for its tidy environment, elegant architecture, and magic football club, last year raked in a tourism revenue of US$ 1.1 billion, or 8 percent of the port city's gross domestic product (GDP).

The city has sent dozens of tourism promotion missions to southeast Asian countries and has established friendly cooperative ties with more than 20 overseas tourism organizations since 1999.

The city has invested heavily in improving transportation facilities, afforestation, building new plazas and renovation of scenic spots.

Mount Wuyi Opens World Heritage Festival

Mount Wuyi, a key nature reserve for preserving biological diversity and World Heritage site in east China's Fujian Province, opens a World Heritage Festival Thursday.

Over 1,200 guests including UNESCO officials and representatives from 27 World Heritage sites in China present at the opening ceremony.

The festival will include workshops on the protection and administration of world heritage sites and exhibitions on the scenic spots of China. A special fund for protecting world heritage sites will also be founded during the gala.

In 1999, Mount Wuyi was included on the World Heritage List by UNESCO, to become the largest of China's World Heritage sites in addition to the other 26 scenic spots on the list. China has become one of the countries with the biggest number of world heritage sites.

Covering a total area of 997.85 sq. km., Mount Wuyi is home to 3,728 varieties of plants and 5,110 kinds of animals, many of which are on the protection list.
