  In Changde Taohuayuan Scenic Area, journalists experience the local bamboo dancing an entertainment of ancient living.


  Reporters are amazed by the night view of the ancient town of Fenghuang.


"It is quiet and beautiful here. When I sit down and pick up a leaf, my inspiration comes spontaneously," said Charlie, a journalist from the Daily Tribune in the Philippines. He said that such a beautiful surrounding might be the reason why Chinese famous poet Tao Yuanming could write such a classic work as "The Peach Colony" (《桃花源》 Taohuayuan).


They enjoyed the views of Zhangjiajie and the cultural performances named as Tianmen Fox Fairy and The Charming Xiangxi. "I was aware that Zhangjiajie has the beautiful scenery, but now I know that there are more ethnic and fascinating customs here," said Mani, a reporter of Lao National TV .


"The ancient town of Fenghuang is one of the most beautiful places in China where I've been. It is a picturesque and dreamlike place, and I feel particularly comfortable, relaxed and happy here," said Nattapung, a reporter of Thailand TV. He shot a lot of footage for promoting Hunan's beauty in Thailand.


Besides these compliments, the reporters are reporting Hunan by their coverage on different perspectives.


Charlie was attracted by the art of Hunan embroidery (or Xiang embroidery). He said, "I will use the words Hunan Tiger to cover the story about Hunan Embroidery to Filipinos."


"Changde's water, Zhangjiajie's mountains and Xiangxi's culture are typical symbols of Hunan province,"said Dai Zhigang (Chinese name), a reporter from Cambodian Khmer Daily. He said that every place of Hunan has its own characteristics. Johannes, a reporter from "Compass Newspaper" in Indonesia, said that Zhangjiajie's landscape should be introduced under the reports themed as "24 Hours of Zhangjiajie".


Csann Wei (sound),a reporter from Thailand Infoquest, concerns about the economic impact of Hunan's tourism. He will report how the local governments look for the opportunities to promote the tourism in foreign markets, and how to use tourism to boost local economy according the Belt and Road initiative.
