“Four Worlds in one Country – Ecuador”photo exhibition kicks off

CAN you imagine a country in which you can find everything that you need? That country is Ecuador, and you will see and understand why it’s true.

Ecuador is a country of four worlds: the Pacific Coast, the mountainous sierra, the Amazonian jungle, and the unique, Galapagos Islands.

In North America and the Caribbean, one can find beaches as beautiful as those in Ecuador. One can also find mountains as beautiful as ours. But Ecuador actually has snowfall on the equatorial line. It’s the only place in the world that snow can be found on the equator.

We have the highest mountain in the world: Mount Chimborazo. If you measure from sea level, Everest is the tallest mountain. But if you measure it from the center of the earth, it is Mount Chimborazo, in Ecuador--- because it is the closest to the equatorial line.

Beautiful tropical rainforests can be found in diverse corners of the planet. But only Ecuador has it all in one territory, which is only a little bigger than China’s Guangxi Province. And of course, there are the mythical Galapagos. No one else on earth has them.

In Ecuador you can have breakfast on the beach, lunch in the Andes next to Cayambe, which is the snowfall located on the equatorial line. Then you can have dinner in the Amazon, and the next day, fly to the Galapagos in only an hour and a half.  The only country in the world where such a compact odyssey is possible-- is Ecuador.

Ecuador is the most megadiverse compact country in the world. If we take into account the terrestrial and marine species of animal life, Ecuador is the only country that has the greatest quantity of animal species on the entire planet per square kilometer. For this reason, we not only promote tourism, but we promote a tourism that is conscientious, that means is responsible, ethical and sustainable—making tourism into a transformative activity which makes us better human beings.

We love nature because we have natural treasures that are marvels. This love is transmitted to the tourists that we receive from all over the worldwho, after seen our national parks, understand the concept that integrates the AMAR LA VIDA—love life—which is our country brand.

But, Ecuador is not only a land of natural wonders. There can also be found human-made treasures. And the most important thing that makes Ecuador what it is, is its people. We are 16 million people of 14 different nationalities, mostly of mixed European, Native Ecuadorian and African descent. Each nationality has its own traditions, culture and language. In short, Ecuador is a melting pot of races and cultures, and every time you visit, you will fall in love with it. We have the highest level of tourism infrastructure, and excellent connectivity. This is why we say, “All you need is Ecuador.”

Ecuador is a unique destiny in its region and in the world, and these efforts are evident in the way we have had successful attempts in supporting conservation and taking care of nature. In fact, this past 21st of March, part of Galapagos islands named Darwin and Wolf were declared a marine sanctuary and a RAMSAR zone, which amplifies the protective zone of the marine ecosystem in one of the most extraordinary places in the planet for practice diving.

This exhibition presents a fascinating group of well selected photos that invite to the public to marvel at the beauty of Ecuador, which combines well with the beauty of this museum that is characterized by its modern architecture and excellent level of exhibitions.

We present today a life changing experience for the people of China to discover something unique. We want to share our passion for Ecuador through this photo exhibition.

 “Four Worlds in one Country – Ecuador” includes over 100 high resolution photos of the 4 regions of this unique country;we hope that you will enjoy experiencing the fantastic 4 worlds of Ecuador!
