More than 30 international guests paid a visit to W-town in Beijing’s Miyun district on May 9.
They included government officials and business representatives from Croatia, Germany, Switzerland, Canada and Austria.
“The water town is only a few years old, but does look thousands of years old under the shadow of the Simatai section of the Great Wall,” said Noah Fraser, China managing director at the Canada-China Business Council.
“It’s an incredible vista, a feast for the eyes.”
Fraser got a good taste of what the water town has to offer during his stay.
“We have a beautiful hotel room, overlooking the Great Wall,” he said.
“It’s all very modern. Five-star all the way.”
The water town has been working to boost inbound tourist visits in recent years.
It received more than 100,000 visits from international travelers in 2019, up 30 percent compared with the previous year, said Wang Zuoquan, an official with Beijing W-town.
More tourism products and services will be developed to cater to the needs of tourists from different parts of the world, Wang said.
