An official of Changting county in Longyan presents a certificate to Jackie Chan on Nov 28, in recognition of his donation of an ancient building showcasing traditional Chinese architecture.


Jackie Chan donated an ancient building showcasing traditional Chinese architecture to Changting on Nov 28, during a ceremony which also marked the launch of a campaign aimed at protecting the county, which is on the list of the State Council’s third group of national historical and cultural locations.


Changting is known both at home and abroad for its unique historical, Hakka and ecological features, and attracts many tourists - especially residents of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao.


The Chinese public did not generally react favorably when Chan donated another ancient building to Singapore in April. He then heard that Changting is aiming to promote itself as a tourist destination, and he decided to donate one of his properties to express his support – and it was shipped to the county and arrived on Nov 23.
