www.ijjnews.com, Nov. 28 -- Jinjiang is not only a city of sports, but also a city of humanities. On November 26 and 27, taking use of the spare time of the KELME 2019 FISU University World Cup - Football, Jinjiang guided athletes and coaches of 14 teams from 12 countries to Wudianshi Traditional Blocks to experience Minnan culture and the cultural charm of Jinjiang city.
Athletes listened to the simple and elegant Nanyin in Laiyi Hall, watched the unique Gaojia Opera in Zhuangyuan Street, and enjoyed an interesting puppet show in the Family Motto Hall of Buzhengya Mansion... Jinjiang City's "Reception Hall" - the colorful cultural experience in Wudianshi Traditional Blocks left a deep impression on the athletes.
"I am very glad to have such cultural exchange activities. I hope I can know more about Jinjiang, experience more Jinjiang culture and feel its charm." An athlete from Thailand said, "During this cultural exchange, I saw many interesting and fresh things that I have never seen before. It was great!"
On their way, foreign friends also took the initiative to interact with the citizens and take photos, waving hands, clapping and hugging affectionately ... people of different skin colors found the "common language".
In the next two days, Jinjiang will continue to organize athletes and coaches of the teams to visit Laojunyan at Qingyuan Mountain in Quanzhou, Quanzhou Overseas Transportation History Museum and Quanzhou Vocational and Technical University to enhance exchanges and interaction and experience the beauty of the city.
