The Irish Girl — Annie Becomes the Winner of “My Chinese Love Story” Campaign 2018-10-11

As the winner of “My Chinese Love Story” campaign launched by Hangzhou, the 21-year-old Annie from Ireland published her declaration of love to her boyfriend — Dave on a full page of The New York Times on this year’s Valentine’s Day.

 

Hangzhou, a heavenly city in China, is well-known for its picturesque scenery and cultural and historical relics scattering around. In its numerous scenic spots, West Lake, which was inscribed into UNSECO's World Heritage List on June 24, 2011, is definitely one of the highlights. All these helped Hangzhou become the most romantic locale in China and the place where many amazing love stories have happened. It is in Hangzhou that Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai, a Chinese equivalent to Romeo and Juliet, challenged the feudal ethics and fell in love; It is in Hangzhou that Bai Suzhen, a white snake spirit, met her human husband Xu Xian; It is also in Hangzhou that the long-hair girl Li Yanhua proposed to her boyfriend who lived in a different city. In order to further encourage couples from all over the world to speak out loud of their love, Hangzhou Tourism Commission launched “My Chinese Love Story” on its Facebook page on Dec. 3, 2013 and Annie is the winner.

 

“My Chinese Love Story” campaign is the sub-activity of “Modern Marco Polo” which aims to inspire European tourists and help them to further know Chinese culture presented by Hangzhou. Through a series of activities, “Modern Marco Polo” will pick a spokesman for modern Hangzhou, an ambassador who can share Hangzhou with the world. The spokesman can get an annual salary of €40,000 and 15-day Hangzhou Exploring Tour.
