In order to further enhance Shantou's image of "Top Tourist City of China" and support the work of creating a national civilized city, since mid-February, Shantou Municipal Tourism Administration has been updating and installing 15 tour guide maps in the urban area. Up to now, the work has been completed.
In 2012, the tour guide maps were installed in the Waterfront Promenade, Jinsha Road, Zhongshan Road, parks and other main roads and tourist gathering zones in the urban area. This time, combining with the conservation and activation of the port-opening area of the small park and other work, Shantou Municipal Tourism Administration carefully verified the locations of Shantou City's major tourist attractions and tourist hotels and accurately marked them on the tour guide maps. Meanwhile, on these maps, it newly added famous featured food stores and other catering, entertainment and shopping places which can reflect Shantou's tourism characteristics, so that the functions such as tour guide of the tour guide maps would be more complete in order to fully meet the tourism needs of the citizens and tourists.
