Guizhou province's Bijie city recently held a news conference in Beijing to promote its cool summer weather, picturesque scenery and culture.

Performers in traditional Miao ethnic group costumes played the reed-pipe instrument lusheng and danced at the event.

According to the city's deputy mayor Wang Yimin, Bijie is a perfect place to escape summer heat and enjoy the ethnic group's culture. The authorities are also upgrading facilities in some scenic spots in order to improve the visitor experience.

In summer, the average temperature in the city is 21 C because it is surrounded by mountains and has a lot of greenery.

Since 2013, Feixiong Airport in the city has flights to 16 Chinese cities including Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chongqing. It takes two and a half hours to fly to Bijie from Beijing, with a flight every day except Saturday. It takes about eight hours from Beijing to the provincial capital, Guiyang, by high-speed train, which is about 230 kilometers from Bijie.
