AP: China promoting ‘red tourism’ to bolster communism

From AP, via USA TODAY:

China wants more residents to visit key sites in the country’s revolutionary history in a “red ” campaign to instill faith in the communist leadership and boost development in rural areas, state media reported Tuesday.

Such sites include the bleak northern town of Yanan, the one-time civil war base of revolutionary leader Mao Zedong and his forces, and Xibaipo, a town southwest of Beijing where the party Central Committee met in 1949 on the eve of their victory.
