Fifteen cultural and tourism companies from Taizhou, East China's Zhejiang province are attending a tourism trade fair in Sichuan province.

Taizhou's cultural and creative products, food and intangible cultural heritage are being showcased at the fair, which is slated to run until Nov 3.

A photo exhibition has also been launched to promote eight tourism routes with different themes in Taizhou.

Taizhou, a coastal city in Zhejiang province, is home to three national 5A scenic spots and 17 at national 4A level. It is dubbed as the cradle of the Xiatang and Hehe cultures.

The city is also widely known as an important stop on the Road of Tang Poetry, which refers to a route that crosses through much of eastern Zhejiang. The route was named as such because more than 400 poets in the Tang Dynasty (618-907), including Li Bai, Du Fu and Bai Juyi, wrote poems while traveling on it.

In 2019, Zhejiang designated five tourist attractions along the road, three of which are in Taizhou, as Scenic Spots along the Road of Tang Poetry. They are Tiantai Mountain Scenic Area, Ancient City of Taizhou Scenic Area and Shenxianju Scenic Area.
