The Chengdu tourist bureau, Chengdu Culture and Tourism Development Group and Ctrip.com, an online travel service provider, brought 10 travelers from Britain, the United States, Singapore, Australia and China's Hong Kong SAR - Chengdu's five largest sources of tourists outside the Chinese mainland - to experience the capital of Sichuan province from Dec 23 to 25.
The travelers were selected in early December from nearly 1,000 applicants from more than 20 countries and regions. The 10 were then divided into five groups to experience different aspects of the city: Qingcheng Mountain, the Dujiangyan ancient irrigation system, the ancient town of Anren, the giant pandas and their natural habitat, and Chengdu's downtown area of restaurants.
Five teams of cameramen filmed their travels, and the footage will be packaged as reality TV programs to promote the city.
The campaign is part of the China Travelers' Forum, to be held in March 2016 in Chengdu and which aims to promote the city as a global tourist destination. The forum is being organized by the three agencies and more than 1,000 travelers, tourism officials, entrepreneurs and experts are expected to attend.
Organizers hope that the 10 travelers, who have a total of more than 1 million fans on their social media accounts, can take advantage of their followings to increase Chengdu's popularity.
