A Douyin augmented reality projection, revealing the history and scenery of the Shenyang Imperial Palace Museum, was shown in Shenyang, capital of Northeast China's Liaoning province, on Thursday night.

Douyin and the Shenyang Imperial Palace Museum jointly organized the landmark projection show.

A total of 93,000 videos were posted by players, and viewed 1.42 billion times. Many Douyin players went to various landmarks to record Shenyang, such as Shenyang Guaipo (magic slope), Zhongjie Street, the industrial museum and renowned restaurants.

The Shenyang Imperial Palace Museum was built in 1625 as the residence of Nurhaci and his son Hong Taiji, founders of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). Covering an area of over 60,000 square meters, the palace has a total of 114 ancient buildings and more than 500 rooms, along with collections of valuable porcelain, lacquerware, jewelry, writings and paintings.

Recently launched by the Douyin short video app, the city landmark AR special effects project allows audiences to experience history and fantasy.

The cooperation between Douyin and Shenyang has rejuvenated the city. The videos allow more people see the culture, cuisine, architecture and people in Shenyang, drawing more visitors to Shenyang and promoting economic growth.

As a city with a long history and rich cultural resources, Shenyang has made great efforts in the development of tourism in recent years, aiming to innovate and also bring together history and modernity in unique ways.
