Longmen Grottoes, located in Luoyang, in central China's henan province, is a repository for China's Buddhist stone cave-art. It was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2000.


Longmen grottos were carved in the Northern Wei Dynasty, and took more than 400 years to finish. There were a large number of historical relics including religion, architecture, calligraphy, dance, clothing and art. The grottos featured the highest quality cave-art in China.


Longmen Grottoes' scenic spot introduced a "smart tourism" service in 2015. The services includes online ticket purchasing, voice guides and customer service. Visitors can buy tickets through Longmen Grottoes' Wechat account at any time. Chinese and English voice guides can tell visitors the stories behind each Buddha.


"Smart tourism" also offers up information about travelers. It has helped to establish close and long lasting relationships between the scenic spot and nearly 2.8 million travelers, as well as create a convenient and interactive connection between them.


The smart service has preserved the culture of Longmen Grottoes and enhanced the industrial competitiveness of the scenic spot.
