The Tiexi district of Shenyang -- capital city of Northeast China's Liaoning province -- recently moved to capitalize on its rich century of industry history.
On Oct 30, Tiexi launched two industrial culture-themed hands-on learning tour routes, offering a new choice in industrial cultural tourism to domestic and international tourists visiting Shenyang this winter.

The second route highlights several top domestic and foreign companies engaged in high-end equipment and automobile manufacturing, including the BMW Tiexi Plant and Shenyang Yuanda Enterprise Group. Visitors can get to know more about the internet plus and intelligent manufacturing and understand modern industrial culture there.
Industry insiders said that the two tour routes explore new paths and new driving forces for cultivating and developing the industrial cultural tourism sector.
Moving forwards, Tiexi district will continue to promote the integrated development of its industrial culture with other industries. It will design and launch more thematic hands-on inquiry-based learning tours, to attract more visitors to experience the industrial culture of the district.
