The military parade in Beijing on Sept 3 scored highest in the category, "Most impressive moment of Chinese diplomacy in 2015".

Asked to choose three "impressive moments" or fewer from 14 diplomatic events last year, more than 50 percent of participants chose the military parade, held in Beijing to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, which was attended by leaders from a number of countries.

The World Internet Conference held in Wuzhen, Zhejiang province in December won the backing of more than 40 percent of respondents.

The Republic of Korea was the top choice for more than 23 percent of participants who plan to visit natural scenic destinations or historic and cultural sites overseas this year.
