With the aim for celebrating the one year anniversary of Chongqing Liying Intelligent Technology Research Institute Co., Ltd. (Leand), strengthening the cultural construction of our company, enhancing the emotional exchange among colleagues and expressing gratefulness to all the employees for their trust, accompany and dedication, the leaders of our company decided to carry out this group activity in Bifeng gorge of Ya’an city from september 1st to 3rd2020.
On the morning of September 1st, 2020, all the staff drove from Tongnan and arrived at the hotel that was ordered in advance after 5 hours or so. The internal and external environment of the hotel was pretty nice. With the sound of running water and birds outside the window, we took a nap there. And then we walked along the street of the Shangli ancient town. The buildings there were built against the river, which had strong local characteristics. There were pedestrians coming and going on the street and different yummy food, such as fish, hand-made noodles, spicy duck heads, etc. We even met some craftsmen who were selling some cute animals made by palm leaves and sketchers also could be seen everywhere…
In the afternoon of that day, our leaders also arrived at the hotel and took a break after finishing their affairs. Then they led us to the Red Army restaurant in the Shangli ancient town to enjoy dinner. After that, we came back the hotel. Some colleagues ate barbecue, some played mahjong, and others just enjoyed the river breeze and relaxed themselves. That’s how it ended the first day.
The next day was the highlight of this activity. After breakfast, we just drove to Bifeng gorge. This gorge is the habitat of Sichuan pandas which are the world natural heritage, the 5A tourist attraction as well as the national science education base. Trees there are verdant and the weather was cool and pleasant. Dozens of gorges with various shapes and names could be seen along the tour. Since it is a gorge, there are many slopes and canyons. It was comparably easy for us to walk the first half of the route since it was a downhill path. However it became quite difficult to walk the later half. After 4 hours of trekking, all of us completed the whole route. We appreciated much gorgeous scenery along the way, talked fondly and took a lot of photos.
All of us felt hungry and tired at noon but the lunch didn’t get ready. So we took the sightseeing bus to the panda base with great anticipation. There were only several pandas which had just woken up. And these charmingly naïve pandas even have been abroad. After that, we went to some souvenir shops and came back to the restaurant to have our lunch. And then we had a break. As for supper, we had firewood chicken nearby.
Since there is a long distance between BIfeng gorge scenic spot and Tongnan district, so we drove back just on the third day. It was already afternoon when we arrived, so we had lunch together and then went back to rest. It was time for us to get ready for work of next day.
Group construction activity can not only deepen the communication between employees and leaders but also can enhance the sense of belonging and cohesion. I believe that this tour was not only a simple experience recorded in our mobile phones, it must have shortened the distance of colleague’s hearts. The future development of our company also will be more promising. I also believe that our company will usher in a better future in the coming year with the leadership of our leaders.
