The Nanyue travel authority of Hengyang City announced that Hengshan Mountain witnessed 636,200 tourist trips during the National Day and the Mid-Autumn Festival holidays, a year-on-year increase of 10.26%.
Scenic spots such as Zhurong Peak, Nanyue Great Temple, and Nantianmen (the Southern Heavenly Gate) were crowded with tourists. Flower-drum opera performances in Nanyue Ancient Town brought a cultural feast to them. The performance of “The Monkey King” at Water-Screen Cave Scenic Spot won applause from children.
This year tourists were attracted by rural travel with local characteristics, besides praying for blessing and sightseeing. A 200-mu (13-ha.) sunflower show at an all-for-one travel demonstration site in Nanyue drew many tourists. Water-Screen Cave Scenic Spot provided a specific and culturally diversified travel experience for travellers.
To ensure orderly operation, the Nanyue Scenic Spot intensified efforts to divert tourists in parking lot, ticket offices, and cableways. It increased signboards and controlled traffics efficiently in response to the rising numbers of self-drive tours. It also opened parking lots around governmental departments, schools, and residential communities, as well as vacant lots to the public.
