"I hope people can enjoy views of the Gobi, desert, valleys and lakes in Xinjiang through this series," says Du Yong, the head of Karamay's publicity team.

"The series is an invitation. And we want to make people feel the charm of Karamay through cartoons, and promote local tourism through the spread of our culture," says Du.
