During the broadcast, the anchors introduced many famous tourist attractions and historical sites such as the Nanyan palace on the Wudang Mountain to audiences. Nanyan palace is a perfect combination of nature and culture on the Wudang Mountain. People build palaces, pavilions, and halls according to the unique structure (cliffs, caves, and other dangerous places). It is really amazing.
The anchors also highly recommended special local snacks and dishes of Hubei province. For example, they mentioned Huagu Opera, Yellow Crane Tower, and Yangtze River in the live stream. In terms of food, they mentioned hot and dry noodles, steamed Wuchang fish, and bamboo preserved pork, which showed how warmhearted and hospitable they are.
By the end of the live broadcast, a total of 1.37 million users had watched and participated in the interaction. On July 14th, "I endorse my hometown" will also lead you to Chengdu, Sichuan.
