Xiong Qi Javier Baez Jersey , a native of Central China's Hunan province who now lives in Shanghai, has decided to celebrate the "winter festival" by taking a trip to Harbin, the capital of Heilongjiang province, to visit its famous ice festival.

"Winter festival" is how Xiong refers to the winter solstice, a time when as a child he ate dumplings and sat on his parents' comfortable sofa watching movies.

Although North China's snowy season is not a traditional time for outings, it has benefited from the expansion of the high-speed rail network and the growing public interest in winter sports, and an increasing number of travelers such as Xiong are embracing it as a time for fun.

"I don't have many opportunities to see heavy snow in my daily life, so naturally I was attracted by the ice world," the 33-year-old teacher said. "But North China is known for its bitterly cold winters and poor connections with other parts of the country, and it never crossed my mind that I would travel such a long way just to see some ice sculptures, but now, we have more high-speed trains, which are comfortable, affordable, and time-efficient," he added. "Also, with Beijing's bid to host the 2022 Winter Olympic Games, many of my friends are becoming interested in skiing and other winter sports."

According to the Harbin Tourism Administration, as the season commences the city will be one of the destinations for 10 dedicated high-speed tourist trains from East China, including one that will depart Hangzhou in Zhejiang province on Dec 24. The 800-seat train will call at major cities in Jiangsu province, such as Suzhou, Wuxi and Changzhou, as it carries tourists to destinations in Northeastern China, including Shenyang and Changbai Mountain in Liaoning province.

Moreover, a new high-speed rail link set to open by the end of 2017 will reduce the journey time between Beijing and Zhangjiakou in Hebei province to about 60 minutes. Zhangjiakou, 220 km northwest of the capital, is Beijing's bid partner for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games, and the local authorities are expecting a great number of visitors to visit some of the new ski resorts in its Chongli area.

Travel agencies are also predicting a rapid rise in demand for "snowy sightseeing" as the network develops. Harbin ranked fourth in a recent list of the top eight tourist destinations in the Chinese mainland, according to Ctrip, an online travel service.

Zhang Guangrui, honorary director of the Tourism Research Center at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said the high-speed rail network has changed China's tourism map and the behavior of tourists.

"For certain distances, the network is a better option than coaches or planes because of the relatively cheap prices, shorter journey times and convenience. Many cities would not have become tourism destinations if they weren't connected by the high-speed railway," he said.

HANOI, Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- Vietnamese marksman Hoang Xuan Vinh won the first-ever Olympic gold medal for Vietnam on the opening day of the ongoing Rio Olympics' events and in doing so prompted many local sports experts to maintain it was no fluke but the inevitable result of Vietnamese sports development.

Early on Sunday morning local time here, Vinh won the gold in the men's 10m air pistol event. On Wednesday night, he managed to earn a silver in the men's 50m pistol event.

Vietnam started attending the Olympics in 1980 after its reunification. Since then and ahead of the Rio Olympics, Vietnam has won two silver medals.

Several people said Vinh's success was merely an accidental result, mainly thanks to the shooting event's new rules. However, looking at sports development in Vietnam, it is inevitable.

According to Vietnam's sports development plan by 2020, with a vision to 2030, approved by the government in 2013, Vietnam planned to send 30-40 athletes to the Olympics in 2016, with the tactic being to win two medals. During the 2020-2030 period, the country will gain 30-50 Olympic berths, and will earn more than two medals, including one gold, according to the latest plan.

This plan puts an end to 10 years of indecisive investment. Previously, many local sports officials said Vietnam should focus investment in the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games and does not need to set up a long-term sports development strategy, while few others stated that Asian Games (ASIAD) and Olympics should be the country's priority.

After the lacklustre performance at the 2010 ASIAD and 2012 London Olympics, Vietnam has focused its investment on some 50 talented athletes potentially competing in 20 Olympics events. Hoang Xuan Vinh is on the list.

In a recent exclusive interview with Xinhua in Vietnam's capital city of Hanoi, the head of Vietnam's General Department of Sports and Physical Training, Vuong Bich Thang, attributed Vietnam's breakthrough at the Rio Olympics to the country's choice of sports events which are suitable for Vietnamese people and their strengths.

In the past, Vietnam focused on Olympic sports that require particular skills such as shooting and archery, as well as events less popular in the country, including table tennis, tennis, judo, short-distance track and field events and swimming, among others.

Thang said this is the right path for the country as many Vietnamese athletes have gained Olympic slots in these events.

According to Vietnam's sports development strategy ahead of 2020, the country has also paid due attention to sports requiring mass involvement.

In 2015, Vietnam launched an Olympic Day Run for public health as part of the campaign on following President Ho Chi Minh's example of physical training and sports.

"Vietnam always focuses on developing mass participation sports to promote public health and improve physical strength. This is also a foundation to develop .
