On 25 September 2014, ACC organized and facilitated ASEAN diplomats in Beijing to visit Water Town and Simatai Great Wall located in Northeast Beijing. The area is a perfect match of natural and historical spots with towns renovated to their original look. The Simatai Great Wall is also praised as one of the the most impressive parts of the Great Wall. The participants were impressed by its unique and picturesque scene.
China and ASEAN are both source markets and travel destinations between each other. The two-way travel is driven by friendly relations between ASEAN and China. The aim of the Visit was to enhance better understanding about China as a diversified travel destination as well as to promote more visitors coming from ASEAN countries, which will contribute to people-to-people contact and boost economy in the region.
