The 2014 Hebei Media Tour got off to a roaring start, on June 22, in Shijiazhuang, the capital of Hebei province, with several dozen journalists from key news sites across the country taking part in exploring the nature and cultural beauty of Hebei over the next seven days.

The organizers are drawing on the success of last year's Media Tour, this year, with a theme of "Beautiful Hebei" to promote its newly developed North Taihang Mountain tourism at home and abroad. These journalists will get a field trip around the cities of Shijiazhuang, Handan, Baoding and Zhangjiakou to give them a taste of the new Hebei that is part of a Beijing-Hebei-Tianjin integration plan.
