Hunan is home to five national archaeological site parks, 39 national historical and cultural cities, towns and villages, and 658 traditional Chinese villages.

The province has 310 Red tourist spots, including 28 national-level Red tourist spots and 57 national A-level tourist spots.

Last year, the number of tourists who visited Hunan's Red tourism spots exceeded 140 million, a year-on-year increase of 25 percent.

The comprehensive income from those visits exceeded 130 billion yuan ($18.26 billion ), a year-on-year increase of 28 percent.

Li Aiwu, head of the Hunan Provincial Department of Culture and Tourism, said that with the goal of building a culturally strong province and a famed tourist destination, Hunan is aiming to achieve a total tourism revenue of more than 1.3 trillion yuan by 2025.

"Our goal is to receive 750 million tourists per year with per capita consumption exceeding 1,500 yuan and the added value of the tourism industry accounting for 6.5 percent of the province's GDP," she said.

"We are shouldering responsibilities and making new contributions to cultural tourism in the construction of a modernized Hunan."
