During the event, nineteen international students from Beijing Foreign Studies University were invited to participate in the activity of 'Residents around the Expo Park Celebrating the Chinese New Year'. Attracted by various activities, the students made paper-cuts for window decoration, made dumplings, and put up couplets in folk houses. They also watched the snowy scene and took photos with the pig-shape snow sculpture outdoors. A Pakistani student, who has been in China for three years, said, "It's my first time to participate in the activities about the Chinese New Year. The BNBs here are different from general hotels. They have a joyful atmosphere, which makes me feel happy. I want to tell my friends to come to Yanqing and embrace the beauty of winter."
