New Tourism in China

Published by:

Over 700,000 visitors went to a light-show theme park in Haining and Mickey Mouse’ gang in Shanghai would sure be worried about the new blood of the showtime rivals. Haining is reportedly a city near Shanghai and it has China’s biggest leather mall. The visitors were amazed at the ten-minute water and light show of dolphins, tortoises, and virtual models wearing the newest leather and fur fashions.

One cannot deny that China has embraced the technologies more than any country in Asia. This includes ‘augmented reality’ and holograms and it did draw the people who love new thrills. According to The Strait Times, US$2.7 billion (S$3.6 billion) of venture capital has poured into the nation’s travel sector in the two years through 2016.

“In the past, people looked for only basic, low-end package tours – now they want better adventures. China’s policymakers are quite supportive as such experiential tours help boost consumption and the economy,” said Mr. Zhou Kai, a Beijing-based senior director at research firm Zero2IPO. Haining is expected to compete against Singapore’s finest: Sydney’s Opera House and Singapore’s Marina Bay. Aside from this is at least a dozen other cities in China. The biggest Internet veterans also wade in, in partnership with the local government.

One thing that Haining dominates is the leather goods in e-commerce. The Park opened last September and already attracted over 3.9 million visitors. They are paying 80yuan or $17 each ticket. “The idea is simple; tourists come here to shop for leather during the day and stay to watch the shows at night. It is not just the tickets – all of a sudden, your restaurants and hotels are also booming,” said Mr. Zhou Wei, founder of Nth Power.

“Do not underestimate the demand for these VR hologram theme parks and shows for the cities in China. Places like Hangzhou and Hainan – that are already tourist destinations – all want this,” Mr. Zhou added. Is this article helpful? Try checking in the Kroger customers’ feedback for more details.

China warship gets additional ‘feature’

China is believed to have acquired a key technology enabling the development of the electromagnetic weapon after the Global Financial Crisis in 2008 when it bought out the British firm Dynex Semiconductor.

China’s apparently odd choice of an amphibious landing ship to mount such a weapon is probably because of its large cargo capacity. Photos of the ship berthed at a facility at Wuchang Shipyard in Hubei province seems to unveil three large shipping containers braced on its open deck.

These entertained the electrical generators needed to supply the railgun’s intense magnetic field. A new control room added was added to the ship as well as a set of new sensors, above the superstructure. The gun was described to be huge. Roughly the same size as a 32-megajoule railgun the US has been testing. The US-BAE rail gun is intended to fire a 10kg projectile at Mach 7 (8500km/h) over 150km.

Combining this with new integrated electric propulsion systems in warships enables the use of electromagnetic catapults to launch fighters from carriers without the need for powerful nuclear power plants. It also makes fitting electromagnetic rail guns viable.

Moreover, military technology expert Wang Ping at the Institute of Electrical Engineering under the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing told Chinese outlet the new system meant electricity-hungry launch systems and weapons is currently available to be used by any powered vessel. A lot of fund in the bank was surely used.

On the other hand, the US Navy announced it had found software late last month to fix the problem of the USS Ford. But it is not expected to be available for high-intensity combat until 2019, News.com.au revealed.
