Overall, around 3 million Chinese tourists visit the United States annually in recent years.

Kathryn Smits, vice president of international tourism of the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board told Xinhua, "LA is proud to be the city to welcome over 1 million Chinese visitors."

Los Angeles received a record 1.2 million visitors from China in 2018, according to Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board.

Wu is working hard to expand her office's ability to reach the American public too, through the judicious use of media spots in the newspaper and on TV, alliances and co-sponsorships with local companies, museums and heavy-hitters like the NBA, and other innovative ideas.

In this instance, she arranged for dozens of photographs of China to ring the walls in the Huntington's domed, open-air pavilion, to showcase a variety of stunning color images featuring many of the most beautiful and culturally significant attractions that China has to offer.

"I think this photo exhibit is a fantastic way to showcase China, as is Chinese food. That really resonates with Americans," said Smits.

The photos depict China's 53 gorgeous UNESCO World Heritage sites. China has one of the most complete sets of heritage sites over a broad range and boasts the largest number of World Cultural and Natural Heritage Sites. These designated sites constitute some of the most popular and compelling tourist attractions amongst China's rich natural and cultural resources.
