China's forestry tourism is seeing rapid growth and there is huge potential in the future, a senior forestry official said on Saturday. The value of such tourism was 650 billion yuan ($103 billion) in 2014, accounting for one-fifth of the country's tourism revenue, says Zhang Yongli, deputy head of the State Forestry Administration.

The rapid development of the forestry-tourism sector shows its huge potential and wide prospects, he said at the opening of the country's forestry tourism festival in central Wuhan city.

Visiting forests for a breath of fresh air and relaxation has become increasingly popular among China's urban dwellers.
