On March 28, China announced the first batch of the country's best science-themed tourist destinations, with the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST), Three Gorges Dam on Yangtze River and Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center all on the list.

Developing science-themed tourist destinations is regarded as a step toward deepening supply-side reform in the tourism sector. It can also accelerate the integration of tourism and technology, according to reports.

In 2016, the China National Tourism Administration (CNTA) and Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) reportedly began consulting on the project in preparation to push it forward. To further cultivate science-themed tourism in the future, CNTA and CAS will highlight science and technology-themed tourism resources and build high-quality science tourism products.
