Wang expected to see "further breakthrough" in the number of the US tourists in Beijing in the future.

Wang's enthusiasm was shared by her counterpart of Washington DC, Beijing's US sister city since 1984.

"This has been fantastic," said Theresa Belpulsi, vice president of Tourism of Washington DC, talking about Tuesday's event.

"We are very excited these photos are absolutely exquisite. We are very excited again just another event that really highlights the culture and the friendship that we have between Washington DC and Beijing," said Belpulsi.

Governments from both sides have launched a series of measures to boost tourism. Now, China is the fourth largest international source of visitors to the United States, while the latter has become the third largest international source of visitors to China.
