In recent years, the area has been striving to develop its culture and tourism industries and build a cultural tourism industrial cluster worth 100 billion yuan ($14.2 billion). Its unique strengths and rich history make it a perfect place for exploring Chinese civilization.
For the upcoming New Year and Spring Festival holidays, the area plans to hold a variety of activities and implement preferential policies for Xiamen travelers, such as discounted tickets and subsidies for Xiamen travel agencies, according to local officials.
At the promotional event, tourism sites in Xixian New Area signed cooperative agreements with tourism enterprises in Xiamen. In the future, the two sides will work together to propel the development of the tourism industry and explore new models for cooperation in the culture and tourism industries.
