Nanjing looks to connect with Canadian agents and travellers via social media


Nanjing looks to connect with Canadian agents and travellers via social media

The Nanjing Municipal Tourism Commission has launched dedicated Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube channels, in a bid to promote the ancient capital city to North American consumers, tour operators and the travel trade.

The new social media channels are Nanjing Tourism and PHG Consulting’s latest efforts to increase inbound visitation from the U.S. and Canada and follow the launch of the English-language website GoToNanjing.com in November 2016.

The channels highlight Nanjing’s history, gastronomy, arts, culture, and architecture to showcase this city, "where past empires and ancient traditions intersect with breathtaking natural scenery and contemporary Chinese culture," the tourism commission said. The destination’s top attractions featured in the channels include Dr. Sun Yat-sen’s Mausoleum, Xuanwu Lake, and Nanjing’s vibrant culinary scene.
