Verdant pastures in North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region have all turned a lush green this month, and the whole region has now entered its peak tourism season, according to local media reports.
Large numbers of tourists from China and abroad come to travel across the grasslands, visit forests and experience local folk customs.
It's still early days, but with the arrival of the peak tourism season, over 90 percent of the tourist attractions in Inner Mongolia have resumed operation.
During the Dragon Boat Festival holiday on June 7-9, the region welcomed 7,496,300 tourists, up 8 percent on the same period last year. The region's tourism revenue hit 4.66 billion yuan ($674 million) for the holiday, a 14.4 percent increase on last year.
At present, the region has launched its own eco-tourism projects featuring its unique regional characteristics – including the grasslands, deserts, forests, borders, the customs of its ethnic minorities and cultural relics -- on the basis of its world-renown grassland scenery and folk culture tourism resources. The projects focus on creating a number of high-quality tourism routes to prepare for the arrival of more tourists.
