A total of nine tourism projects worth 6 billion yuan ($892.9 million) in southwestern Guizhou province's capital, Guiyang, were signed at the city's tourism promotion conference in Beijing on August 4.

The projects include a geological tourism town, a camping site and a Red tourism zone.

Guiyang is known as a summer getaway for its year-round cool weather and primitive lush forests.

It received 110.92 million visits from home and abroad in 2016, up 31 percent over the previous year.

Tourism income surged 33.5 percent to 138.95 billion yuan.

Local government expects the number to break 194.87 million by 2020.
