For most tourists, the first scenery that pops into their mind is perhaps the picturesque Erhai Lake when attractions in Dali, Southwest China's Yunnan province, are mentioned.

But director Gao Jieyu took a different point of view.

He was convinced that a grand party-like artistic program would probably attract young tourists to list the city on their go-to travel option charts.
