ĦĦĦĦIn recent days, Shaoshanchong, former residence of Chairman Mao Zedong, received a sea of teenagers from across the country, forming a special tourism peak. Shaoshan became an ideal choice for schools and families to get a brand-new patriotism education on Tomb Sweeping Day.
ĦĦĦĦAccording to the statistics of tourism department in Shaoshan City, tourists coming to Shaoshan in March hit a record high of 483,500. Among them, about 40 percent were students from colleges and primary and secondary schools. He Lang, deputy director of the Publicity Department of the Shaoshan Municipal CPC Committee told the reporter that just on March 31 and April 1, 3,000 junior school students from Changsha visited Shaoshan in two batches. Divided into 30-odd batches, all the commentators in Mao Zedong Memorial Hall and Mao's Legacy Museum provided service for the students. The teenagers showed great interest in the life story of Chairman Mao and the displayed cultural relics. The commentators were up to their neck in explaining and answering questions raised by the students.
