The head of Inner Mongolia’s tourism bureau, Wei Guonan, pointed out that Inner Mongolia’s snow and ice tourism differs from that of Heilongjiang province, which is also popular for winter tourism, because Inner Mongolia’s involves fewer urban areas and more nature and ethnic flavor.

Wei went on to explain that its main item is Nadam, which has different levels —the national, regional or family —then added, “We can tailor a Nadam to fit the tourist’s needs,” and that tourists can experience the life of herdsman, and there are other winter tourism choices.
