With the arrival of the second China Tourism Day, our reporter interviewed five ordinary Chinese people and recorded their understanding to the Tourism Day and their love for travel.

The Tourism Day belongs to people who love life

I love both photography and travel and I love to record everything I see with my camera during the journey. My most impressive trip was the journey to Yichang city, Hubei province, where I recorded people's living in the Three Gorges. I hope that I can record the disappearing history with my camera.

Travel means not only enjoying different sceneries but also knowing about people in different regions and their lives and customs.

To be honest, I really do not know much about China Tourism Day, maybe because it was just set up or there is not a holiday for it. However, I am still happy that there is a festival belonging to all of people who love travel and life.

The "travel talent" expects more holidays
Guo Xu, female, 30
Location: Beijing
Occupation: Office worker

I am a native of Beijing. When I was a little girl, I had a dream to measure the world with my feet. Since I love travel, I always pay special attention to travel information. I have my own travel strategy about what time and where to travel and what the most cost-effective way is. Therefore, my friends named me as "travel talent."

I know that many tourism zones give tourists various preferences and hold large-scale performances on the Tourism Day, and I really want to participate in. However, the National Tourism Day of China is still not a national holiday. Therefore, I had to spend the day working this year.
