12 Yunnan projects enter the list of national selected sports tourism projects
12 Yunnan projects were selected into the list of national sports tourism projects at the 2019 China Sports Culture Expo and China Sports Tourism Expo (CSCTE) held in Guangzhou from November 28 to 30. This made the province rank 4th around the country in terms of the number of selected projects this year.
This year, the expo covered an area of 46,000 square meters and featured six exhibition areas, bringing together more than 400 branded enterprises from China and abroad.
Yunnan has taken part in the CSCTE for years. This year, the province’s pavilion was themed “Colorful Yunnan—a destination for healthy life”. Since the Yunnan exhibition was undertaken by Lijiang City in northwest of the province, Lijiang elements like featured architectures, water wheels and the jade-dragon snow mountain were integrated into the design of the pavilion. During the exhibition, Lijiang Dongba culture and Naxi dances were presented.
The 12 selected Yunnan projects fall into four categories which are the scenic spots, tourist routes, sports games and destinations. As far as scenic spots are concerned, two projects from Yunnan were selected, and they are the Binchuan Jizu Mountain Scenic Spot and the Xinping Mopan Mountain International Outdoor Sports Park. The Kunming Ten-peak Sports Tourism Mountain-Climbing Routes, the Route of Chinese Expeditionary Army, the Pudacuo Niru Hiking Route were selected as national tourist routes. Under the category of sports games, five Yunnan events were selected and they are the China-Myanmar Ruili-Muse Cross-border Marathon, the Shilin Yi People’s Wrestling Games, the SCO Kunming Marathon, the Jiangcheng China-Laos-Vietnam Ball Throwing Carnival, the Menglian Fish-catching Contest, and the Anning Dahei Mountain Mine Motorcycle Endurance Games. And the Kunming Jialize Plateau Sports Town was selected into the list of national destinations. (Text from Xinhua; Photo from Yunnan Daily)
