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 a healthy life”. Since the Yunnan exhibition was undertaken by Lijiang City in the 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.
