Guangzhou’s promotion video is named “Guangzhou, Flower City in Bloom”. On GDToday alone, the video has garnered over 150,000 views in less than one week in early June.

As the host of 2017 Fortune Global Forum, Guangzhou now is having a series of road shows all over the world, with its promotion video being played on Times Square screen, BBC and other platforms.

Guangzhou’s promotion video is named “Guangzhou, Flower City in Bloom”. On GDToday alone, the video has garnered over 150,000 views in less than one week in early June.

In the video, the city’s beauty, energy, openness and amity are embodied in the love story between a Chinese lady and a foreign man. Some of you may feel that the romance is too good to be true, but, Tomas and Rao Min, the leading actor and actress of the video, have been married for 3 years in real life.

Believing that “Canton Tower is the No.1 building in the world”, Tomas from Lithuania has a great liking for Guangzhou’s modern side while Rao Min is a Guangzhou local who was born and grew up in the city’s old district.

To some extent, the city’s combination of tradition and modernity and its trend of internationalization can be traced in this Lithuania-Guangzhou marriage.



Newsgd.com: What is the main idea of the Guangzhou promotion video?

Tomas: I think it shows how beautiful Guangzhou is. Not only the buildings, places, but its history, too. Guangzhou is one of the best places in the world to do business. It is not only beautiful, but has a lot of opportunities here.

Tomas and Rao Min accept Newsgd.com's interview.

Newsgd.com: The video now is very popular on the Internet. Many people said that they were really impressed by the beauty of Guangzhou. But some said that they wanted to see more Guangzhou details, like the traditional part. What are your opinions on such comments?

Rao Min: If the time of the video can be longer, it can show more about Guangzhou. More Guangzhou details can be put into it. But this 5-min video has already showed a very amazing Guangzhou.

Tomas: Actually in Guangzhou, there are a lot of really nice places, nice views, like Canton Tower, IFC building. If you want to show a full Guangzhou, it may need a movie. The 5 minutes already show enough.

Tomas and Rao Min disclose the secret behind the video.

Newsgd.com: Have Tomas received some feedback from your foreign friend circle?

Tomas: After this video was posted, everybody sent messages to me by WeChat or even by Facebook. Actually many people are interested in it. Really a lot of people said that they wanted to come to Guangzhou or even come back. One of them said, “I wish I can come back, but now I have a family or something. Maybe next time.”

Newsgd.com: Could you name one building which you believe should be the landmark or the symbol of the city?

Tomas: I think it is the Canton Tower. When I first came to Guangzhou, I knew this building, but I didn’t know Guangzhou exactly.

Newsgd.com: Could you share your love story with us? Is it just like what you act in the video, you meet each other somewhere in the city and then fall in love with each other?

Rao Min: I think it is destiny. We didn’t meet on the street (like what it is in the video). Long long ago, one night, he was in a friend meeting. We had the same friend. Actually on that night, I didn’t want to go out from home. But my friend said, “Come! Come! Come on”. And I said, “OK. I will just stay for a short time.” Then I went there and we met. At that moment, he even didn’t have the SIM card for phone. (In the party,) he asked my phone number. Next morning when I was still in the bed, (I found) somebody sent me a message. (I realized that) he already bought a phone card and sent message to ask me when we would meet again.
