Yueyang Vice Mayor Qiu Hong recently took a cruise ship to inspect the city's water tourism development projects. She convened the leaders of various tourism units to discuss the water tourism development on site.

She led the team starting from the Yueyang Tower Marine Department Barge Wharf, passing Yueyang Tower, Baling Square, Bianshan Island, Missionary School, Taipingzui Wharf, Shangyang Custom (ancient Chenglingji Port), Hunan Chenglingji International Container Terminal, and Sanjiangkou (the river mouth of the Yangtze River and Dongting Lake in Chenglinji of Yueyang City), to inspect the development of water tourism, communicate with the heads of relevant functional departments, and listen to opinions and suggestions.

Vice Mayor Qiu requested that all departments should strengthen cooperation, form a consensus, and work together to develop water tourism projects. We should do well in integrating land, water, and air; South Lake with Dongting Lake; and, sightseeing and experience tours, to achieve coordinated and integrated development. We must focus on highlighting regional characteristics; digging deeper into the cultural connotation of water tourism; rationally developing water landscape resources; and, building high-quality water tourism routes. We should scientifically formulate implementation plans, steadily and orderly promote water tourism development, and achieve high-quality tourism development in Yueyang, she added.
