Of late, Ten Red tourism routes were opened and introduced in the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region as part of the celebrations for the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China.
Region’s Department of Culture and Tourism actually developed the routes. It would permit tourists to unravel the best of what the region has in store in the history of the people of China and their fight against the old social structure and foreign aggressions especially those led by the CPC－before the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949.
They cover extensive areas across Guangxi and give the travelers a peek into the history spanning from the Taiping Rebellion against the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) in the 1850s and 1860s, to the New Democratic Revolution that started with the May Fourth Movement on May 4th, 1919, the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (1931-45), and the reform and opening-up of the country as well as the achievements of modern development.
“Guangxi is an important birthplace and inheritor of our Party’s revolutionary spirit,” said Lu Xinshe, Party secretary of the autonomous region.
Many revolutionary forerunners, like Deng Xiaoping, Wei Baqun and Li Mingrui, fought tremendously for national liberation and happiness of the people in historical events like the Baise, Longzhou and Xiangjiang uprisings, Lu said.
