The county spares no efforts to promote its tourism industry and through years of hard work, it has made great achievements in economic development and turning the county into a beautiful and highly livable area.

Since 1999, the art festival has become the largest-scale cultural gala in Hechi, providing the city with an important window to cooperate and communicate with the outside world. This year's festival will include an evening launch party, a cultural heritage show, an art show, a folk song competition, a calligraphy and painting exhibition and an awards show. It is expected to be a great opportunity for visitors to gain some insight into Hechi and Dahua culture while giving the local tourism industry and economy a strong boost.
