With the introduction of the “Thousand Parks + Thousand Trails” policy, Guiyang, a city known for its reputation of “mountains within the city and city within the mountains”, is continuously expanding its green spaces, connecting the city with nature, and providing more outdoor recreational destinations for its residents.
Among these numerous parks and trails, there are many stunning “internet-famous check-in spots”. Moon Lake Park is one of the best. The park’s camping base, cycling paths, and light intensity outdoor activity areas provide a rich and colorful experience for the citizens.
In addition to Moon Lake Park, Guiyang City has also partnered with “Mafengwo” to establish its domestic headquarters in Guiyang.

The core of tourism consumption is ranging from tourism, travel to leisure activities. As long as leisure activities are very professional, the customer group is willing to pay for their interests and hobbies. Therefore, we need to understand the needs of the customer group and then provide new supply, create a tourism+ model, such as combining trendy sports with art, local culture.”
