The fantastic performances gave the audience a new impression of the city's cultural heritage and glamour, according to Zheng Conghui, deputy head of the tourism commission of Sanya.
"When it comes to Yantai, the first thing that comes to my mind is Yantai apple and red wine," Zheng said, adding that the unique tourism promotional event organized by Yantai offers a new way for tourism operators in Sanya to tap into his city's abundant resources.
The promotional event reflects Yantai's ambition to develop an "all-for-one tourism", where different sectors and various resources are involved to meet tourists' needs.
