"Red tourism", featuring visits to historical sites with China's revolutionary legacy, is gaining more popularity across the country, as July 1st of this year marks the 95th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China (CPC). Meanwhile, this year also marks the 80th anniversary of the victory of Red Army's Long March as well as the 85th anniversary of the Red Detachment of Women's establishment.

Among all scenic spots, Ji'an city in Jiangxi province, as an important part of the Jinggangshan revolutionary base, attracts many visitors including CPC party officials to commemorate the party's 90th anniversary.

A report released by China National Tourism Administration suggested China's red tourism sites received more than 4 billion tourists in the past decade, with numbers growing by 16 percent annually.
