United Kingdom (UK) residents recently had an opportunity to admire the scenery, intangible cultural heritages, food, and ethnic culture of southwest China's Guizhou province, following a promotion activity of Guizhou's culture and tourism that was held in London on April 1.

It is the second time that a Guizhou delegation brought such activities to the UK. Over the past few years, Guizhou has strived to go global and gain attention with its abundant tourism resources and multicultural society, said Chen Wen, minister of the Embassy of China in the UK.

Representatives of ethnic groups from Guizhou perform traditional songs and dances at the activity. 

Artists from Guizhou performed traditional songs, as well as showed off instruments, and the manufacturing methods of intangible cultural heritages during the activity, giving local UK residents a chance to learn more about "colorful Guizhou."

As one of Guizhou's inbound tourism markets, people in the UK have shown great curiosity to Chinese culture and are keen for more activities of this kind to enhance the communication between the two countries, said one of the UK guests at the event.

Wu Chunxiu, inheritor of intangible cultural heritages from Guizhou, demonstrates the manufacturing methods of the traditional silver ornaments and embroideries of the Miao ethnic group at the activity. 

According to John McLean, vice chair of the City of London Ambassador Group of the Institute of Directors, laid a solid foundation for China and the UK to explore more collaborative opportunities in other areas, while cultural exchange is a good opportunity to bring the countries closer.
