(CNN)—When he says make room for lovebirds, a park spaces out its public benches along a lakefront.
When he smiles after taking a bite of a local delicacy, a national culinary superstar is born.
When a path he walks down is publicized, it practically becomes a pilgrimage for many travelers.

According to CNN, president Xi Jinping has become China's first tourist, who can be more effective than a tourism board campaign for attracting Chinese tourists. Wherever Xi travels internationally, that country can expect a boost in Chinese tourists. Similarly, at home, wherever Xi has dinner, that store later will embrace a large amount of tourists who wanna try "president set". Simply put, few industries have felt his influence so profoundly as tourism sector.
Here CNN sums up eight ways to specify the great influence both at home and abroad.
1. "Mich-Jinping" food guide 2. Dumpling seller 3. Maldives promoter 4. Human marketing campaign
5. Macau gambling cooler 6. Helping out lovebirds 7. Architectural guide 8. First Lady influence
