BEIJING – Binzhou city in the northern part of Shandong province is holding a tourism festival from September to October.

Binzhou is famous for being the hometown of Sun Tzu (born 535 BC), a strategist and high ranking military general during the late Spring and Autumn Period and the author of The Art of War.

The Art of War is one of the most successful books on military strategy and is widely known throughout the world. It has inspired many leaders and generals, including Mao Zedong, General MacArthur and Napoleon.

One must-seeing scenic spot in Binzhou is a "military city", which shows 36 military strategies in the book.

Binzhou is also famous for its big and juicy jujubes, and visitors will have the opportunity to pick dates in the city’s suburbs.

"Binzhou has fantastic scenery, and I’ve been there three times," said Wei Xiaoxia, a senior reporter at China Tourism News.

Binzhou provides individual and grouping tourism service to benefit tourists.
