Huawei's chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou recently visited Zhangjiajie, Central China's Hunan Province, an online video showed on Wednesday. Some netizens recalled that the city, which is famous for its national forest park and scenic spots, experienced a COVID-19 resurgence a few months ago and it's now back to normal. 

Meng arrived at a local restaurant and some servants performed folk songs, greeting her with rice wine as a habitude to welcome guests outside the gate, the video showed. Some netizens said that China has many beautiful places and the motherland is the safest place as the world is still fighting against the pandemic. 

The visit also reminded some netizens of the resurgence of the epidemic in the city, where James Cameron's blockbuster Avatar was shot, in July where its major three scenic spots, Wulingyuan, Tianmen Mountain and Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon, reopened in late August after two-month lockdown and its outdoor as well as indoor scenic spots gradually opened in early September. 

Meng's itinerary has attracted the public's attention, as the high-profile case of the senior executive, who was detained in Canada for nearly three years on the request of the US, ended after she returned to China on September 25 thanks to sustained efforts by the Chinese government and support from the Chinese public. 

After she finished her 21-day quarantine, Meng returned to work at Huawei's Shenzhen headquarters on October 25, warmly welcomed by the company's staff and many netizens.
