China celebrated National Day by lighting up two important cities. There was a spectacular light show to symbolise country’s 70th birthday. The ancient city of Xi’an and the coastal city of Qingdao glittered with tens of thousands of LED lights. Furthermore, some of the prominent landmarks were also lit up to accentuate the beauty of the skyline. More than 200 buildings along Qingdao’s Fushan Bay were lit up, whilst skyscrapers flashed the words “celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China” against a red backdrop, and images of the famous Great Wall. The celebrations continued until 7th of October whilst marking 1st October as the National Day.
