After experiencing the suona, He Zhuojia was deeply moved. She said, "Playing the suona looks simple, but it's very difficult to make a sound. Mastering the suona is not something that can be achieved in a day or two; just like being an athlete, it requires long-term practice and hard work."

Lily Zhang expressed that Chongqing is unique and poetic, with an interesting culture that is full of surprises. She particularly likes the city of Chongqing.
