By hosting a tour of Xuan Wu's statue in Taiwan and launching special tourism trains for Beijing tourists, Wudang popularized its brand and expanded its tourist market.

In addition, Wudang focuses on improving the tourist management service. Wudang has finished the construction of tourist infrastructure, including the park's greening and refuse transfer station, and has accelerated the construction of extension projects. By enhancing the management of the scenic spot's order, implementing security measures and increasing emergency processing ability, Wudang protects the rights of the scenic spot's shoppers and tourists and promotes the order processing of the scenic spot's operation.

Furthermore, Wudang keeps protecting natural, cultural and historic resources. It has finished compiling the Overall Planning on the Protection of Wudang Mountains Ancient Architecture, restored over 80 ancient buildings, and passed the supervision of the World Cultural Heritage Center of the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization. To popularize Wudang martial arts, Wudang has set up the Wudang Mountains International Martial Arts Institute and its branch in the Nanjing Tech University Pujiang Institute, where martial arts has become a compulsory course.
