BEIJING, Aug. 21, 2014 /CNW/ -- On August 20th, Beijing Municipal Commission of Tourism Development and CRI Online jointly launched "Feeling Beijing" Online Contest for Global Audiences in six languages including Chinese, English, German, French, Japanese and Korean, which enables world participants to answer the questionnaire in their native languages by visiting www.cri.cn.

The event will last till October 20th. Questions in the contest cover a wide range of areas, including Beijing's history, culture, tourism resources, as well as the 72-hour visa-free transit policy. The contest is expected to encourage worldwide people to know more about Beijing's beauty. Participants will find it interesting by exploring Beijing's history, tourism or food in this contest.

CRI Online invited its foreign experts to help design questions according to their understanding of what interest people from other countries. For example, Germans and French like football very much, and the experts from German and French services raised a question about "the most famous football team in Beijing." Questions targeted to particular regions and countries as such can be easily found in the contest.

All participants submitting valid answers online may be awarded a free trip in Beijing. Each language service will select a lucky participant to visit Beijing and attend the ceremony of this event for free.

Participants could visit the web page in their native language to answer the questions, and may answer the questionnaire again if unsatisfied with their previous trials. The final version of answers will be seen as the valid answers. Participants should leave their contact information, including name, email address, etc. Interesting questions, simple rules and attractive awards will make the contest appealing to world netizens.

This contest, organized to showcase Chinese cities and their regional culture and urban economic development, is one of CRI Online's brand events. In recent years, CRI Online has cooperated with the State Council Information Office of China, Tourism Bureau of Sichuan Province and the Information Office of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region to organize events such as "Feeling China," "Travel in the Heaven on Earth" and "Closer to Xinjiang" which have achieved sound promotional effects.
