According to a plan by the Sichuan Provincial Tourism Bureau, five international tourism cities, 24 tourism towns and 47 ethnic villages will be built along the G317 and G318 highways. The evaluation, which was completed in late June, was attended by experts from the United Nations World Tourism Organization and Pacific Asia Travel Association as well as local officials.
Starting from Sichuan’s capital Chengdu and Shanghai, the G317 and G318 National Expressways stretch through western Sichuan to Tibet in the north and down south respectively.
With several major Tibetan tribes, the Sichuan Tibetan region has become a focus for European visitors and a hotspot for domestic cyclists.
The Tibetan areas of western Sichuan in Southwest China, have been earmarked as part of a world tourist destination that boasts the potential of attracting 600,000 tourists a year by 2020.
