“Let’s go, let’s take the old people and children to the Atomic City. Let the old people relive the years of passion; let the children receive red education, learn red history, and cultivate patriotism.” On August 16, Chen Xia and his family drove from Xining to the Atomic City Memorial Hall to start a one-day tour.

Sophia, the announcer of the Atomic City Memorial, said that because her family members were party members, she had received red education from her grandparents since childhood, loved the Party and the motherland. When she grew up, she was always inspired by the story of “two bombs and one star”, so she had the idea of becoming the successor and disseminator of the red spirit, and passed on these precious spiritual wealth.
He Ying, a national excellent guide who has participated in red tourism in Qinghai for a long time, said: “The 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China is about to be held. As a tour guide, we should tell the story of the Party well, tell the story of Qinghai well, and let the red gene pass on from generation to generation. Many red education bases, such as the Memorial Hall of the West Route Army of the Chinese Workers and Peasants Red Army, are important carriers for inheriting the red gene and rallying the forces of progress. The red tourism developed on this basis has become a bright card of Qinghai tourism.”
