Recently, the Yunnan Provincial Government vowed to build the province into the most beautiful travel destination in China.

The province is rich in tourism resources and in 2017 received 567 million tourists (an increase of 33.3 percent year on year), including 6.68 million overseas tourists (an increase of 11.2 percent year on year). Tourists hope that the day will come soon when Yunnan becomes the most beautiful province in the country.

Chang Wanqing, a tourist from Shanxi Province, was impressed by the clean streets, clear water and well-planned landscaping in Yunnan’s Dayao County. With the coordinated development of its natural, cultural and urban environments, the county is becoming more attractive, liveable and tourism-friendly, Chang said.

Liu Xiaochen, a tourist from Lanzhou in Gansu Province, was fascinated by the picturesque scenery he witnessed while boating in the Puzhehei Scenic Area. It is her hope that the province’s green mountains and lucid waters will be protected.

“This is totally different from my imagination of the Chinese countryside,” said Mia, a student who is from Jordan and now studies at China’s Renmin University. On July 23, as part of the “International Students Focus on China 2018” programme, he came to Dongshan Village in northwest Yunnan’s Weixi Lisu Autonomous County. The trip completely changed his impression of China’s rural areas. In late 2015, as China further promoted poverty alleviation schemes, the villagers in this region seized their opportunity. They built new houses, improved local infrastructure and completed a renewed industrial layout in only 14 months.

 “The houses are laid out in a well-organized manner. Birds chirp in the courtyards, the fragrance of flowers floats in the air, and various fruit dangle from the trees,” he said. Mia and his companions could not conceal their amazement. When they learned that local people have established a development model integrating agriculture, tourism and other industries, they were even more surprised. They left convinced that the rural areas in Yunnan will become more and more beautiful in the future. BY LIU ZIYU
