Residents of Wuhan may have noticed about 50 advertisements on Wuhan Avenue that are promoting Jingshan county in Jingmen city, central China's Hubei province, as a tourist destination, and Jingshan's tourism bureau also aims to increase cooperation with Wuhan.

Jingshan officials see Wuhan, capital of Hubei, as a source of tourists, as it only takes one and a half hours to drive from Jingshan county to Wuhan, and the highway and railway are also very convenient. In addition, Yuanyangxi drifting in Jingshan attracts many visitors from Wuhan, and the authorities are also promoting bird-watching.

A series of activities have been held in Wuhan to promote Jingshan's tourism attractions, such as the China (Jingshan) tennis festival.

One tourist from Wuhan, surnamed Wang, was enjoying his time at Huzhua Mountain National Forest Park with his family, and he said that visitors to Jingshan can see camellias, and they also have many options, such as drifting, taking a bath in hot springs or playing tennis.
