Beijing, Jiuquan, Gansu, October 14 (reporter Feng Zhijun) – dilapidated buildings, broken walls, abandoned abandoned vehicles, full of mysterious vicissitudes… The old site of the old county seat about 20 kilometers away from the Aksai Kazak Autonomous County of Jiuquan City, Gansu Province, has gradually become the “new favorite” of the Silk Road Tour in recent years. More than 20 years ago, when people went to Chengkong, it became more and more desolate at the turn of autumn and winter in the northwest, but there are still an endless stream of punch in tourists

it is called BOLUO zhuanjing town (the name is transliterated from Mongolian), which is the site of Aksai old county. In the 1950s, Aksai county was built here. Due to its remote location and harsh environment, it was moved to Hongliu bay at a lower altitude in the 1990s, and the whole town was abandoned. Although the buildings are empty, the original urban planning of theaters, government compounds and schools is still in progress

in recent years, the ruins of this messy old city are filled with doomsday waste soil style, which meets the exploration curiosity of urban people. With the “word-of-mouth” on the Internet, they continue to “go out of circles”. As the vast snow covered plateau and the epitome of the story of the old city are preserved, it has become a relatively complete scene in film shooting. Many film location shooting sites such as hero, the great master of heaven, the strong west wind and the nine story demon tower are located here

especially when the nine story demon tower was filmed here, the crew specially made a lot of old scenes, making the abandoned old city look more depressed, becoming an “oil town” attacked by monsters, casting a mysterious veil over the small city

BOLUO zhuanjing town has been upgraded into a national 3A tourist attraction – BOLUO zhuanjing film and television base, attracting more and more tourists to punch in here. Wang Tao, chairman of Aksai culture and Tourism Development Co., Ltd., told chinanews.com on the 12th that with the broadcasting of these film and television dramas at home and abroad, the film and television base has attracted extensive attention from the film and television circles at home and abroad. There are constantly crew members coming to visit and select scenes, and a large number of tourists come for sightseeing

“due to the promotion of the influence of films, it has quickly become a popular punch in place, and there is an endless stream of tourists from all over the Gansu Qinghai Tourism Ring Road every day.” Wang Tao said that although the scenic spot has gradually restored the infrastructure construction of water, electricity, road and network after its operation in 2019, it has been “famous” long ago, Due to the rapid growth of tourists and continuous cooperation in film and television shooting, the scenic spot has attracted more than 200 tourism service personnel

Wang Tao said that the scenic spot is located on the Gansu Qinghai tourism ring line, which has become increasingly popular in recent years. It is obviously different and complementary from other scenic spots around it. It is different from some purely man-made film and television cities. The depression of “original ecology” and the desolation of the surrounding natural environment have a potential attraction for many urban tourists to the mystery of no man’s land, When continuing to invest in construction in the future, it will also practice “repairing the old as the old” to ensure its original historical appearance

in order to retain the “nostalgia” of things and people, Chen Desheng, who grew up in zhuanjing Town, BOLUO, used an old building in the town and spent several years with several “like-minded” partners to build an “Aksai Folk Museum”, which displays the life bits and pieces of local residents’ clothing, food, housing and transportation and their distant historical memories by categories, In the future, we hope to tell more children about the dusty hometown events in history in the form of research, study and travel

“our primary and secondary schools are all here. The earliest historical memory and cultural relics of Aksai residents remain here. In addition to foreign tourists, the relocated residents are also full of nostalgia.” Chen Desheng said that in the future, in addition to displaying old historical objects bearing strong nostalgia, There will also be more interactive and experiential research, learning and tourism products such as calligraphy, painting and sketching.
