The first round of the 2014 Wonderful China Interview Tour wrapped up on May 31.

More than 10 journalists, including photographers and editors travelled to several cities in Shaanxi, Shanxi and Jiangsu provinces. Journalists from the major media brands of South Korea, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Nepal, Brunei, Myanmar and other countries were involved in the 10-day trip.

This event was hosted by China Daily, a member of Asia News Network, and was aimed at enhancing the Asian countries' awareness and understanding about China.

During the trip, all journalists freely recorded their impressions of China with their cameras and pens. Many of the participants said the event helped them get to know the real China.

In Xi’an, capital city of Shaanxi province, journalists visited Tang Paradise, the City Wall, Muslim Quarter and the famous Terra-Cotta Warriors. They also paid a visit to Chenlu Ancient Town where they were introduced to the traditional process of pottery making and learned about the long history of the city.

In Taiyuan, capital city of Shanxi province, besides Mengshan Mountain Giant Buddha and Tai Yuan Iron & Steel Industry District, journalists visited local vinegar workshop, and enjoyed the noodle making show. But what surprised the filming crew was the under going environmental protection measures.

In Zhangjiagang, Jiangsu province, journalists visited the yellow wine production facility and learned about Chinese wine culture . In addition, they got to take home an impression of the local Tang City primary school, which is for students whose parents are migrant labors, and YongLian Village, one of the most wealthy villages in China.
