Hangzhou recruiting families for 'Global Tour'


In an effort to promote Hangzhou as “one of the happiest cities in China,” the Hangzhou Tourism Commission is inviting two families, one American and one Chinese, and a “storyteller” to participate in its social media campaign, Global Tour 2015.

The campaign is accepting submissions from families and storytellers who wish to partake in a free 30-day trip beginning with seven days in Hangzhou, before hitting Dunhuang, China; Mykonos, Greece; Dubrovnik, Croatia; Venice; Geneva; Paris; Boston; and ending in New York.

To enter, families must complete a questionnaire and submit a video via YouTube (30-60 seconds) convincing both the public and panel of judges why they should be the ambassadors for Hangzhou. Journalists or social media enthusiasts who wish to be considered for the role of storyteller must complete two writing assignments and are encouraged to post on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to show their social media expertise and influence.

The contest is open for submissions until June 11, and the winners will be announced on June 18. The Hangzhou Global Tour will take place from July 24 to Aug. 22.

Hangzhou expects to welcome 4 million inbound tourists annually by 2017.
