Guiyang has made great progress in tourism

  In just 10 years, Guiyang has made great progress in tourism, with visitors increasing five-fold and revenue growing 11-fold, according to statistics from the Guiyang tourism development committee.
  In 2007, Guizhou's provincial capital received 23.14 million tourists, earning 12.53 billion yuan ($1.88 billion), while some 111 million tourists visited the city in 2016, bringing in 139 billion yuan.
  More than 70 million tourists visited Guiyang in the first half of this year, up 28.8 percent year-on-year, with total revenue reaching 90.7 billion yuan, increasing 30.7 percent compared with 2016.
  With an average temperature of 23 C in August and many attractive scenic spots, Guiyang has become a popular tourism destination. The local airport has added some 20 routes to connect China's hottest cities, including Chengdu, Wuhan, Changsha and Guangzhou, with Guizhou province.
  Qianling Mount Park, located in the northwest corner of Guiyang, is a good choice for people to enjoy nature and relax. The park was built in 1957 and is home to more than 1,500 species of trees and flowers. Visitors to the park increased sharply this month, with around 30,000 entering the park daily.
  Huaxi National Urban Wetland Park has seen a similar influx of visitors, with some 432,000 tourists received from January to July, up 20 percent year-on-year, according to official statistics.
  Jiaxiu Tower stands over the Nanming River in the center of Guiyang, capital of Guizhou province. The magnificent, three-story pavilion has well-preserved upturned eaves and white stone pillars. Ascending the tower, visitors can enjoy a nice view of the surrounding scenery. The tower was first built in 1598 during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) to honor the first scholar of the time, and encourage more scholars to follow his example. So far, the tower has been reconstructed six times. The scenic spot includes Fuyu Bridge connecting the two banks of Nanming River, the main pavilion and Cuiwei Garden. For 400 years, the tower has been a symbol of Guiyang, witnessing the city's history and ongoing development. It was listed as an important heritage site under State protection by the State Council in 2006.
  The quick development of tourism has also created opportunities for many related businesses. There are 200 tourism agencies and 56 star-rated hotels in Guiyang, providing high quality catering and accommodation services for visitors.
