Winners could get a free trip to the Chinese capital
August 26, 2014: On August 20, Beijing Municipal Commission of Tourism Development and CRI Online jointly launched ‘Feeling Beijing’ Online Contest for Global Audiences in six languages — Chinese, English, German, French, Japanese and Korean. It enables people from around the world to answer a questionnaire in their native languages by visiting www.cri.cn.
The campaign will last till October 20. The questions cover a wide range of areas, including Beijing’s history, culture, tourism, as well as the 72-hour visa-free transit policy. The contest is expected to generate interest in Beijing’s history, tourism or food.
China Radio International (CRI) Online invited its foreign experts to help design questions according to their understanding of what interest people from other countries might have in Beijing. For example, Germans and French like football very much. Experts from German and French raised a question about “the most famous football team in Beijing”.
Participants may answer the questionnaire again if unsatisfied with their previous trials. The final version of answers will be seen as the valid answers. Participants should leave their contact information, including name, email address, etc. Each language service will select one lucky participant to visit Beijing and attend the ceremony related to this event for free.
This contest, organised to showcase Chinese cities and their regional culture and urban economic development, is one of CRI Online’s brand events. In recent years, CRI Online has cooperated with the State Council Information Office of China, Tourism Bureau of Sichuan Province and the Information Office of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region to organise events such as ‘Feeling China’, ‘Travel in the Heaven on Earth’ and ‘Closer to Xinjiang’, which have achieved sound promotional effects.
