Ramada Resort Phillip Island has been a hotbed of international media interest attracting an influx of Asian journalists in recent months.
Asian media companies including China Central Television’s Mandarin-language International Channel (CCTV4), Modern Lady Magazine and U Magazine Hong Kong, as well as Li Xiao Peng – a Chinese Olympic gymnast; lately famed for his appearance on reality TV programs The Amazing Race and Super Daddy – have recently stayed at the resort, while preparing stories on the region.
CCTV4 were onsite at Ramada Resort Phillip Island to film for an episode of City to City – a travel program featuring one city in China and one city in a foreign country, presenting the beauty and charm of both locations. The aim of the program is to build bridges between the different cultures and provide travel tips and inspiration for Asian travellers.
CCTV4 features news and in-depth commentary aimed at people living in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau, as well as Chinese travellers. The channel has proven to be popular in recent years and now has three versions broadcasting to Asia, Europe and America.
Wyndham Hotel Group Business Development Manager Nicole Hill said Ramada Resort Phillip Island was the perfect place for Asian media groups to experience an authentic Australian holiday.
“With the spectacular scenery, great bushwalks and many unique animals that can be found find whilst staying at Ramada Resort Phillip Island, guests are certain to enjoy a true Australian experience,” Nicole said. “Our cottages are nestled in Australian native gardens so that they feel connected to the raw beauty the island boasts.”
