Photos of Nanjing posted on social media by a group of Spanish internet celebrities have racked up nearly 400,000 likes in just one night.

On his first trip to China, 20-year old model Alvaro Mel said that he had taken lots of great pictures on his phone at the Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum surrounded by luxuriant vegetation, his favorite scenic spot.

Zhang Zhiyun, director of the Madrid representative office of China's National Tourism Administration said the group included a model, photographer, singer and actors and actresses, who have approximately four million fans between them.

“This is the fifth group of internet celebrities to travel from Spain to China, which are all organized by us,” he said. It has achieved excellent results promoting the city tourism among tourists worldwide.

The previous four groups' travel photos and videos generated much interest from their 13 million fans from all over the world.
