It facilitates the mutual exchange of information and the development of tourism networks, and works to attract visitors from North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania through linking its 10 member cities.
“My Favorite Sunset Scenes of Asian Cities”
“Asian Cities” refers to the ten member cities of the CPTA.
