Sanmenxia captured by ABC cameras

Sanmenxia, Central China's Henan province, is expecting a boost to its international image, after being filmed by the American Broadcasting Company (ABC).

In order to promote the city's tourism across the globe, Sanmenxia government invited a 20-member camera crew from the New York-headquartered company to make a feature about the city.

The documentary is planned to take six days to complete, lasting until July 16.
