|Wuzhong to launch Yellow River night tour in May|
A new night tour route around the Yellow River will debut in Wuzhong, Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, in this May, according to a recent tourism conference of the city.
Head of the city's tourism bureau Jiao Yuzhu said the route features the combination of running water and solidified ancient-style buildings at both banks of the Yellow River in the region.
Jiao said the banks will introduce art performances, featured food, souvenirs, sculptures and other fun facilities in a bid to build a "Dynamic Sleepless Town around the Yellow River" and attract more tourists.
He said the city will pack other attractions along the river-front area into the route and strive to edge the selected route on the list of the national 5A-level attractions named by the National Tourism Administration
In addition, Jiao said the city will develop the local Hui and red revolutionary cultures to open new tour routes.
Statistics show that Wuzhong registered 1.75 million visits and 950 million yuan (US$151 million) in tourism revenue in 2011, up 17 percent and 20 percent year-on-year respectively.
