At the launching ceremony, the most representative traditional Chinese culture and art such as Tai Chi calligraphy dance performance, face-changing performance of traditional Chinese Sichuan Opera and dance performance of Flying Apsaras in Dunhuang Murals were also displayed. The foreign media reporters at the scene showed great interest and kept taking pictures of these wonderful performances.

With the help of the new technology, the magnificent “Panorama Qingdao”, people felt as if they were in the famous scenic spots of Qingdao, bringing a visual feast to everyone.
The group of “Travelogue of China” also visited CRRC Qingdao Sifang Co., LTD, Haier Group and the intangible cultural heritage exhibition. They not only witnessed the “speed” of China’s development in the new era, but also felt the extensive and profound “thickness” of Chinese culture.
