Full integration of history, tradition cultural innovation and light decoration
Chongqing’s 2019 Spring Festival light decoration integrates such elements as technology and wisdom and lays emphasis on the full integration of history, tradition cultural innovation and light decoration to present the charm of Chongqing as a land of natural beauty and a city with cultural appeal.
For example, the Spring Festival light decoration of Shapingba District incorporates the education, science, culture and hygiene, Shaci (Shapingba and Ciqikou) Culture and Hongyan Culture, so that tourists could feel the cultural glamor from the combination of tradition and modernization.
Relying on the landform, Beibei District lays emphasis on the decoration of main roads, bridges and tunnels, and highlights the Jinyun Mountain Fitness Trails centering on the highest elevation to achieve a perfect combination between the natural scenery and man-made environment.
Dazzling light decoration along river banks
Speaking of Chongqing’s light decoration, we cannot miss the Jialing River bank and Yangtze River bank. Giving prominence to “mountain, water, downtown and bridge”, the light decoration along Jialing River and Yangtze River banks becomes one of the highlights of Chongqing’s Spring Festival light decorations. A dreamy romantic environment where light and shade stagger in Juxianyan Magic Forest is created through light projection. Nine commercial buildings in Jiangbeizui CBD and HNA-Poly International Center in Yuzhong District work together to display the background and history of Chongqing and incorporate the tourism, enhancing the interaction and participation of both citizens and tourists.
Information from the Chongqing City Management & Administration Execution Bureau said that, after the completion of 2019 Spring Festival light decoration, it will release Spring Festival light routes featured by landscape city, history and culture and riverside scenery and cruise scenic route of Spring Festival lights along the Yangtze and Jialing River with the theme of “Spring Festival · Fall in Love with Chongqing”. Chongqing’s night scene will be more charming as all these lights are lit up. (Translated by Xu Mengmiao, Fathom Language Limited)
