Governor of Yunnan: ‘Travelling in Yunnan with a mobile phone’ app is a great smart tourism experience

BY LI SHAOMING

Editor’s Note: Yunnan province is a major tourist destination in China. Last year, the province created the idea of ‘Travelling in Yunnan with a mobile phone’ application (app) in a bid to promote the development of smart tourism. On January 31, the Yunnan Provincial People’s Government held a press conference after the conclusion of the First Session of the 13th Yunnan Provincial People’s Congress. Governor Ruan Chengfa was invited to attend the press conference and answered journalists’ questions about the ‘Travelling in Yunnan with a mobile phone’ application (app) .

Mr. Ruan Chengfa said, “How shall we achieve the transformation and upgrading of our tourism industry? In practice, we feel that we must combine tourism with the Internet to develop smart tourism. ‘Travelling in Yunnan with a mobile phone’ is in line with the trend of digitalization and informationization. It aims to make use of the Internet, big data, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and other technologies to develop the new type of smart tourism.”

“Since the introduction of ‘Travelling in Yunnan with a mobile phone’, tourists can make bookings, enjoy services, and lodge complaints through the official applet and WeChat public before, during and after the tours. For example, tourists can be admitted to attractions by QR-code or human facial recognition, pass through highway tollgates using remote payment methods, enjoy gender- and season-specific E-tour guides, make online settlement and receive electronic invoices to protect their legal rights and interests, book parking spaces and locate nearby restaurants, check toilets and other public facilities, pay for and deliver authentic and high quality tea products and other specialties online and receive unconditional refunds.” said the governor

 “‘Travelling in Yunnan with a mobile phone’ is based on the concept of “one centre and two platforms”. A tourism big data centre guarantees the centralized management and storage, in-depth analysis and safe, effective application of tourism data. Meanwhile, the service platform provides tourists with comprehensive, authoritative and convenient services and a free, pleasant travelling experience.The management platform promptly meets the needs of tourists, effectively handles tourism-related emergencies and provides comprehensive real-time tourism management information so that the travellers can reach governmental management services everywhere. The ‘Travelling in Yunnan with a mobile phone’app will fully embody the concept of “region-based tourism.” I believe that the fulfilment of this goal will be a highlight in itself and will offer a great experience for smart tourism.” Mr. Ruan said.
