Abstract
The rapid development of China's economy and the construction of "the Belt and Road Initiative", have greatly promoted the development of Chinese tourism. Now, China has gradually become an important destination for foreign tourists. The construction of Xiongan New Area and the integration of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei have promoted the development of their surrounding scenic spots' tourism and also tourism translation of those sites. This paper, based on the translation practice of Hu Mountain Scenic Spot in Baoding, Hebei Province, first analyzes the translation difficulties encountered in the process. Then, on the basis of Skopos theory, it further discusses the corresponding translation strategies.
