In recent years, in line with the new trend of global tourism development, Diqing prefecture has strived to achieve a virtuous cycle of tourism, enhancing the brand value of Shangri-La and promoting the transformation and upgrading of the tourism industry.
The image store aims to continuously strengthen tourism exchange and cooperation between Diqing and Lijiang, so that more tourists can get to know and understand Shangri-La and boost winter travel to the area.
In addition, the image store fully displays Diqing's magical and beautiful natural scenery lake, rich ethnic customs and long history and culture.
