Hu Xuefan, director of the Anhui provincial tourism administration, said "Anhui is well positioned to develop such culture tours. The province is rich in tourism resources including history, culture, customs, religions, food, architecture and opera.”

At the forum, two new culture tour routes around Hefei also made their debut--“viewing Hefei through paintings” and “Images of Hefei”, which cover almost all local attractions, restaurants and famous entertainment spots.
