Create Classic Chinese Tour Line

On April 3, just 28 days from the beginning of 2010 Shanghai World Expo, the Expo travel caravan arrived in the Beijing Bird's Nest after 18 days. At the same time, the National Tourism Awareness Week 100 City Expo has just begun. Since then, the Expo has been promoting tourism throughout the country.

World Expo 2010 Shanghai China, like the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, is an international event.

"To some extent, the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai is even more important than the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games," said Stephen Perry, Chairman of British 48 Group Club. "The Olympics lasted only three to four weeks, while the Shanghai Expo will last for several months, showing China's rich history and culture, and attracting people around the world to visit. They can not only see the face of China now, but also through the Expo, to imagine the future of China's development prospects."

Compared to Olympics, the Expo is a longer ongoing process that promotes the entire industry and all of China's tourism resources. As of now, the Shanghai, Yangtze River Delta and the inland provinces and municipalities have launched t30 "Shanghai World Expo Tour" lines, covering the 55 Yangtze River Delta's "trip Expo" lines, the 96 Expo theme of Experience Tour" of the demonstration site .

National Tourism Administration shows that in "Expo tourist routes Guide" manual, recommended tours cover the main tourist cities nationwide. "Development of tourism is not just limited to the Expo itself. We also consider the after-effect of the Expo," said Chengmei Hong, director of Shanghai Municipal Tourism Bureau. "We hope eventually the tourist routes established during the Expo will be retained and become classic travel routes in China."
