Travelers, from ASEAN countries including Laos, visit Hunan scenic spots during the 2018 Hunan Spring Rural Tourism Festival.


Du Jiahao, CPC Hunan Provincial Committee secretary and Hunan Provincial People’s Congress Standing Committee director, and Xu Dazhe, CPC Hunan Provincial Committee deputy secretary and Hunan governor, met with Bounnhang Vorachit, Laotian president and general secretary of the Lao People's Revolutionary Party (LPRP) Central Committee in Changsha on June 1. They attended the “1,000 Hunan tourists visit Laos” launching ceremony.

Flights between Changsha and Luang Prabang are expected to open this year. This follows the opening of direct flights from Changsha to Vientiane and the establishment of Consulate-general of Laos in Changsha. This provides convenience for more personnel exchanges and closer cultural exchanges and cooperation between Hunan and Laos. Cooperation in tourism, economic and trade, culture, education, and poverty alleviation will be significantly promoted.

Hunan Tourism Development Commission (HTDC) Director, Chen Xianchun, said that the event will strengthen Hunan-Laos cultural tourism as part of tourism cooperation between Hunan and countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). A cultural tourism exchange and cooperation mechanism will be established at the levels of tourism authorities, tourism industry associations, tourism colleges, and tourism enterprises. The mechanism will further cultural tourism project cooperation between Hunan and ASEAN countries such as Laos.
