'To encounter a person and fall in love with a city', is the slogan for the 'Ouyu Festival', which is going to be held in Phoenix Ancient Town, central China's Hunan Province. Although the activity has not yet held the festival, it has already provoked controversy. A local tour guide told reporters that the tradition of 'Ouyu Festival' may come from a unique folk custom in Xiangxi, which is called "Bian Bian Chang". It is a kind of courtship among Miao youths. They dress up on special days, if a young man takes a fancy to a woman, he can pull on her sleeves or gently hit her. If she smiles, it means she is saying yes.
The original intention for the organizer is to expect tourists to have a different experience in Phoenix Town and bring more possibilities to their lives.However,some critics believe that 'encountering someone', in itself, is a dog-whistle for people looking to have an affair, and that is vulgar. Instead, some supporters think that 'encountering someone' is quite different from having an affair, and that it is merely an expression from the soul, a method that grants access to a romantic and artistic love.
