The activity of “Photographers Across Taiwan Strait Take Photos-24 hours in Western Hunan” was launched in Changsha on October 28. On the evening, Director of the Hunan Publicity Department Xu Yousheng met with the delegation from Hong Kong China Tourism Press headed by vice president Wang Miao.
Hosted by the Hunan Publicity Department and Hong Kong China Tourism Press, the activity invited over 40 photographers from Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and other provinces. They would leave for scenic sites, ancient towns and minority villagers including Wulingyuan Scenic Spot of Zhangjiajie, Fenghuang Ancient Town of Xiangxi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture and Hongjiang Ancient Commercial Town, in order to record the picturesque landscape, minority cultures and lifestyle and customs with their photographic lens.
Director Xu extended welcome to the photographers. He expected them to capture the brilliant moments of ethnic groups in Western Hunan, showcase a magic, fascinating and advancing Western Hunan, and further upgrade its travel image and raise its fame home and abroad.
Mr. Wang stated that Western Hunan boasts unique multiethnic cultures and splendid scenery. Taking the activity as an opportunity, the photographers will make Xiangxi play a more important role in promoting travel and cultural exchange between Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and mainland China.
