The British electronic media, telegraph media, published an article describing a list of their overseas tourist destinations. In the survey conducted by telegraph media, which covers the UK and more than 20 European countries, Wuhan has surpassed Beijing and Shanghai as the most concerned Chinese cities, and many people have expressed interest in visiting Wuhan after the epidemic subsided.
Wuhan, overshadowed by other Chinese cities
Before the outbreak, many Britons didn’t know the city of Wuhan. Although Wuhan is a huge city with a population of 11 million, but in the more famous cities of China, such as Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an, Hong Kong, Wuhan is not so eye-catching. It does not have the status of political and economic centers of Beijing and Shanghai, a long history comparable to Xi’an, or the title of Hong Kong’s convenient transportation and international port. But with the outbreak, more and more foreigners know about Wuhan. Knowing that it is not famous for those cities mentioned above, China is still a very important city: the national government once established its capital here, is one of the important transportation hubs in China, and the first shot of 1911 Xinhai was fired here. In the outbreak, the city made enough sacrifices to record in history.
For these reasons, more foreigners are attracted to Wuhan. Donna chambers, a professor of tourism at the University of Sunderland, believes that once China reopens to foreign tourists, Wuhan’s historical and modern beauty, coupled with the popularity of the epidemic, will certainly prompt a surge in foreign tourists. “A lot of people outside China have never even heard of Wuhan, so it’s not necessarily a bad thing. Many people will be interested in such a city,” Dr. Chambers said.
With the gradual development of free travel, “curiosity” and “curiosity hunting psychology” create no less tourism opportunities. Although we can’t really compare Wuhan with places like Chernobyl, the epidemic really ignited the interest of foreigners to go to Wuhan. Many travel agencies in Europe have begun to design travel routes to Hubei Province, which are mainly small teams of about 10 people, with Wuhan as the core. The itinerary usually lasts for 7-10 days. Most of the itinerary will enter Beijing or Shanghai first, and then transfer to Wuhan. Even some travel agencies have designed the Yangtze River cruise line to go upstream from Shanghai. These lines are very attractive to foreign tourists.
Wuhan’s cultural and historical landscape, all in the design of these lines at a glance. Among them are yellow crane tower, botanical garden, Hubei Museum, and even cherry blossom of Wuhan University.
Wuhan is an introduction. China will surely attract more overseas tourists after the outbreak.
Since the spread of the epidemic, we can proudly say: China’s control of the epidemic is the best! Other countries also know this. There is no doubt that China’s performance in the epidemic has attracted many overseas tourists. At present, the international tourism industry and related industries, including hotel and aviation industry, regard China as the most potential market, and have begun to make plans to resume operation as soon as possible after the end of the epidemic. And the United Nations Tourism Organization has always regarded China as the life-saving straw of the world tourism industry, and constantly expressed the hope that China will play a greater role.
After the epidemic, China’s tourism industry will not only take the lead in the export of tourists, but also attract foreigners to come for tourism.
