Nowadays, various cities around the world have developed their own carnivals, many of which are regarded as the symbol of the city.

As Hong Kong Carnival's first opening in Jiangxi province, Nanchang will give full play to the spirit of extensive mass entertainment, striving to build the province as a favorable tourist destination.
