The "Na'vi" people in the American science fiction film "Avatar" became the latest tourist attraction in Hunan's Zhangjiajie during the May Day holidays.

It gained favor from both Chinese and foreign tourists, especially from children and younger visitors.

Not only did they marvel at the four "Na'vi" again and again, but also desperately tried to take photos with them. As a result, one "Na'vi's" tail, made from wire wrapping with sponge, was pulled apart by tourists.
