A cultural tourism promotion meeting for Xi'an – capital of Northwest China's Shaanxi province – was held on Feb 12 in Hangzhou, capital of East China's Zhejiang province.

It aimed to extend the influence of Xi'an's cultural tourism brand and increase the city's exchanges and cooperation with key domestic tourist cities. More than 200 people from the cultural, tourism and media circles of the two places participated in the event.

At the promotion, some of Xi'an's time-honored foods and its intangible cultural heritage products – like paper-cutting, shadow puppetry and huamo or decorated steamed buns – stole the limelight.

Adding to the fun, replica of cultural relics and handicrafts and cultural and creative products recommended by the Xi'an Museum piqued the interest of participants who wanted to explore Xi'an's millennium-old culture.
