Activities include lessons on the ancient arts of paper-cutting and creating figures, as well as painting and creating clay figurines and Beijing opera masks. Dozens of delicate drawings on display feature captions giving an overall description of natural scenery, local customs, cultural charm and the international vision of Beijing. In conjunction with the event, the ICN TV Network's television program, "Glamorous Beijing," will be introduced.

This event is more than a display of Beijing, it also represents the beginning of a strong partnership between Beijing and Los Angeles tourism, and is another positive step in growing tourism between the leading gateways of China and the U.S.
