Exotic art performances, a world-heritage photography exhibition and gourmet food was offered by Asia at the recent Asian Culture and Tourism Exhibition.

 

Hosted by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the three-day event started in Beijing on May 16, showcasing the latest tourism developments in China and other Asian countries.
Participants in the event included governments, travel agencies, hotels, resorts and airlines from Chinese provinces along with more than 30 Asian countries and regions, including South Korea, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.

 

“Asia is a cradle of the human civilization,” said Luo Shugang, minister of culture and tourism.

 

China’s Great Wall, Cambodia’s Angkor Wat, Laos’ Luang Prabang, Japan’s Nara, Iran’s Meidan Emam and India’s Taj Mahal are all wonders of Asian civilization that attract travelers from around the world.

 

At the Nepal pavilion, new destinations that would open in 2020 were unveiled.

 

Traditional scarves, scented paper and a photography exhibition were displayed, which attracted flocks of curious visitors.

 

Chinese holidaymakers made 150,000 visits to Nepal last year, going up by 46.8 percent compared to the previous year, according to Nepal’s tourism authority.

 

The Laos and Cambodia pavilions also attracted lots of attention with their art performances. Laos received around 800,000 visits from Chinese travelers last year. At the Cambodia pavilion, Cambodian artists performed local dances.
