Last summer, I went to Inner Mongolia in China. It is a place with lots of grasslands and the livestock industry there is thriving. Nomadic population still exists and the government tries to encourage more youngsters to join the Nomadic lifestyle with some beneficial policies. One of the highlights in the place is the Sino-Mongolian cross-border. Over the bridge (there is a huge green fence with words saying “keep away” at the entrance of the bridge), you can see the lands of Mongolia, the only landlocked country in East Asia.
The Sino-Mongolian cross-border tourism based on the Arxan-Songbeir Port was set up in September 2014. The launch of the tourism development there was regarded as a celebration of the diplomatic relation established between China and Mongolia.
Visitors love to take pictures under the gateway of China in the Arxan Port. The enormous gate showcasing the words “People’s Republic of China” in sharp red. With a national emblem on top, the gate looks preeminent in the vast expanse of grasslands.
