The "Your Yunnan Story" relay event was officially launched on July 15 by Yunnan Tourism Information Network Co., Ltd. The company promoted the event across various media platforms such as ifeng.com, China Youth Online, NetEase, Sohu, and also created anticipation for the event by promoting it on TikTok through the @visityunnan account, inviting participation from the international community.
During the event, we received over 50 video submissions from international students and foreigners residing and studying in Yunnan. These videos portrayed their perspectives on Yunnan, ranging from its local cuisine, scenic attractions, ethnic attire, and intangible cultural heritage handicraft.
For instance, Zhu Shicui from Vietnam saw Yunnan's charm in the ever-blooming flowers in every season. Nanfeng from Laos, a wildlife enthusiast, found Yunnan's uniqueness in its adorable and rare animals. Stephen from Madagascar recommended his favorite Yunnan snacks on camera, while Dai Beibei from Malawi danced in traditional attire to display her newly acquired dance skills. These beautiful moments collectively depict how Yunnan is perceived by our foreign friends.
These submitted videos were later edited and compiled into the final relay video. In August, the relay video was shared on the TikTok account @visityunnan, allowing people from various countries and regions to experience the essence of Yunnan online.
Yunnan's character lies in its persity, and its charm shines in its vibrant colors. Here, you can fully immerse yourself in the beauty of its natural landscapes, rich history and culture, perse ethnic traditions, and biopersity. Through the perspectives of our international friends, we aim to showcase Yunnan's unique features, allowing the world to "share" Yunnan's beauty and inviting more people to come and experience "Yunnan: A Many-Splendored Life".
