They were representatives of government departments, enterprises, finance sector, educational circles and international organizations, etc. from more than 20 countries and regions. They shared experiences on and insights into smart tourism, digital economy, and the integrated development of both culture and tourism.
How can smart tourism make a better life? After the meeting, the guests from all over the world set out for Kunming Shilin Scenic Area to feel it for themselves. The scenic area has been rated as “World Geopark” and “World Natural Heritage Scenery” by UNESCO.
Here, the guests used Go-Yun-Nan, the authoritative and convenient smart tourism platform jointly created by the Yunnan Provincial Culture and Tourism Department and Internet giant Tencent as their terrific assistant.
1. Guide of touring scenic areas
With the guiding function of Go-Yun-Nan, a tourist can view the map of scenic areas, locate his/her current location, and listen to the introduction of each small scenic spot. In a word, it is just like carrying “a tourist guide” in your pocket.
2. Discern flowers by means of shooting them
When a guest encounters any unknown plants, he/she can just take a picture of them and then will know their names. Yunnan is called the Kingdom of Plants, boasting more than 15,000 kinds of plants. Growing in sunshine and with abundant rain and dews, they await the exploration of tourists.
3. Find a toilet
When you have to answer the call of nature, Go-Yun-Nan can help you find the nearest toilet.
There is actually only one scenic area in Yunnan, which is just called “Yunnan.” It’s a gift from nature. Yunnan is home to the most number of ethnic groups in China so that tourists will be able to experience the splendid and colorful ethnic cultures here.
Now Yunnan opens its arms to welcome tourists from all over the world. It is expected that the English version of Go-Yun-Nan will be launched in September 2019 which will surely become an excellent tool to assist tourists from all directions to have a wonderful tour of the province in a more relaxed, more assured and happier manner!
