To inspire professional tour operators and travel enthusiasts to travel to China, the event focus on “Discovering Splendid China in Autumn and Winter”, inviting Malaysians and Indonesians to explore the beauty of China’s autumn and winter seasons. Participants are encouraged to design a travel route with themes such as “Nature Landscape”, “Gastronomic Delights”, “Wellness”, “Family”, etc. by discovering the splendour and charm of China’s autumn and winter.
