"Xi'an deserves millions of photos. The Song of Everlasting Sorrow in Huaqing Hot Spring, the first Chinese great historical pantomime, is impressive. I have never seen such a great performance in my life," says Md Amran Hossain from Bangladesh's Daily Star.

Tianjin is a city with a unique East-meets-West atmosphere. Old buildings in its financial areas, the ancient culture street and little Italian neighborhood are all well preserved and have different charms.

At the same time, the metropolis' impressive urban construction and economic development are demonstrated in Tianjin port and national animation industry park. What draws most attention from the cameramen is the cultural attractions with typical Tianjin style, such as Clay Figure Zhang and Tianjin Yangliuqing New Year paintings.

Thanis Sudto from The Nation, Thailand, is fascinated by Tianjin's unique culture.

"I love the nice ancient cultural street that offers novel and fancy things all around you, and I had a chance to buy the xiaorenshu, a small book drawn by hand for children in the past decades in China," he says.

The high temperature in Zhejiang, Southeast China does not spoil the photo team's fine mood when experiencing the picturesque "Jiangnan" (lower reaches of the Yangtze River). Photographers are engrossed taking photos of Nianbadu old town, Mount Jianglang and Guyan town.

Many journalists are amazed at Zhejiang's natural beauty. "The scenery there is magnificent and I have taken many fantastic videos. I will surely go back to Zhejiang. I love Zhejiang, the picturesque province," says Lance Matthew Crayon from China Daily's website division.

As part of the public relation campaign initiated by the Information Office of the State Council and National Tourism Administration in 2013, the Beautiful China event plays a significant role in promoting foreigners' deeper understanding of China. The event was held from July 22 to August 5.
