Popular song doubled tourist flow to Turkey from China (VİDEO)
The singer accidentally made an advertisement for the whole country.
The clip of popular performer Xiao Zhang made an unplanned advertisement of Turkey in China. The song “Dai ni qu luxing” (“I’ll take you on a trip”) promises to the girlfriend of the character “romantic Turkey”. At this time in the clip is a scene of flying balloons over Cappadocia. According to the Anadolu agency, the number of Chinese tourists visiting Turkey reached 191,000 people in the first half of 2018, which is 91% higher than last year, according to Hurriyet Daily News.
In this case, the main destinations for Chinese tourists were Pamukkale, Bergam, Ephesus and Cappadocia. Travelers themselves say that the clip had a big impact. “I would like to see Cappadocia on board a balloon”, they say. Interestingly, many other countries are shown in the video, but the biggest impression was made by several frames of Turkey.
