Hainan's Wenchang city recorded a music video for an original song entitled This is Wenchang to promote the city's rich culture and marine tourist resources.

According to historical records, Wenchang was established in 110 BC during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 24), and was previously known as Zibei county at that time, which suggests that the city has more than 2,100 years of history.

Wenchang is the hometown for many overseas Chinese, which adds to its characteristic culture. There are currently more than 1.2 million overseas Chinese people from Wenchang in more than 60 countries and regions around the world.

Wennan Old Street has traditional Nanyang architecture. It was built in 1920 and still retains the charms from that time.

The city has a superior natural environment. It is located in the eastern area of Hainan, is surrounded by the sea on three sides, and has the longest coastline in the province, forming Hainan's new tourism industry belt.

Wenchang International Aerospace City is one of the 11 key industrial parks in the Hainan Free Trade Port, driving Wengchang's rapid development.
