Culture and Tourism Promotion Show "Huangsi Mama City Exploration" Premieres

By SHIHAN YANG|Dec 09,2022

A journey connects picturesque landscapes, and a nursery rhyme evokes thick nostalgia. "Huangsi Mama City Exploration," a culture and tourism promotion variety show of Chongqing Satellite Television, is aired weekly from December 9.

"Huangsi Mama" means ant in the Chongqing dialect. It reminds every Chongqing people of the nursery rhyme deep in their memory. It symbolizes their "ant character" and can arouse the homesickness of Chongqing people who have left their hometown to make a living. The "Huangsi Mama Club of City Explorers" customizes city exploration services for Chongqing returnees with the help of foreign members who are familiar with the city. They take returnees to explore the city, scenery, and people in Tongliang, Yubei, Banan, and Wansheng districts, discover new places in Chongqing and tell the story of the Chongqing people.

In the show,  explorers will start a business in the Chongqing Shibati Scenic Area. Actor Max Zhang, head of the Club, will entrust the "Club of City Explorers" composed of manager Tang Yunyi and two foreign residents to satisfy the appeal of returnees. They will customize a personalized travel route in Chongqing for returnees every week.
