The Zhangjiajie cultural exchange delegation returned from their “Promoting Tourism Culture of Zhangjiajie in Taiwan” tour on June 6, 2012.
The delegation made a string of visits to the cities of Taipei, Taichung, Tainan and Kaohsiung and attended a discussion on travel with the Taipei Trade Association. They also had a cultural exchange with aborigines of the Zou Tribe of Ali Mountain, learned the volunteer management system of Kending National Park, and attended a lecture on travel service by a professor from I-Shou University. During their visit, ten outstanding tour guides from the Hunan delegation gave several performances of rich local Zhangjiajie flavor, including Zhangjiajie Yang Opera, Lantern Opera, Sangzhi Folk Songs, and the Tujia Minority Hand-Waving Dance. Also during the visit, the group distributed thousands of brochures with information on touring Zhangjiajie.
Liu Zhixuan, executive chairman of the Taipei Cultural & Educational Exchange Association and chief of Chenfeng Travel Agency, spoke highly of the Zhangjiajie promotion tour, saying “Sharing the experience with other tour guides will improve our standard of travel service, and we look forward to seeing travel in Zhangjiajie being better and better!” .
