The rose town of Chishi, the fishing song and the sail of Shitang, Golden Water Tow of Xiangong... During the May Day holiday just passed, the beautiful scenery in the countryside has become the ‘Top Spots’ in the ‘moments’ of WeChat, attracting a large number of visitors. ‘Thanks to the comprehensive improvement of the environment in small towns, the popularity of our village Chishi has increased greatly and the number of visitors coming during the May Day holiday has reached the highest point ever,’ happily said Zhao Xingrong, Party Committee Director of Chishi village.
These days, Chishi village is a well-deserved ‘Top Spot’ with great popularity. The visitors appreciating the flowers, the dense traffic, and the flow of people interwove into a magnificent scene. Taking advantage of the comprehensive improvement of the environment in small towns, Chishi created the ‘Love Island, Rose Town’ with the love element as the target and the rose as the carrier. Through the renovation, the main body made up of thousands of roses creates a romantic Rose Garden, which also gathered a lot of popularity for Chishi Village. The farmer’s house and the rural B&B with their great popularity make the villagers see the bright prospect of rural revitalization.
At the beginning of last year, Yunhe County set off an upsurge in the comprehensive improvement of the environment in small towns. According to the goal of ‘one plan for one town; one characteristic for one town’, it put forward the plan of ‘Six Scenes of Six Towns’ based on their local conditions and local customs, and focused on creating the ‘Terraced Farming Town’ in Chongtou, the ‘Sails & Fishing Song’ in Shitang, the ‘Xiangong Golden Water Town’ in Jingshuitan dam, the ‘Love Island · Rose Town’ in Chishi, the ‘Village of Pear Blossoms’ in Anxi, and the ‘She Village on Mysterious Land’ in Wuxi. For more than a year, the townships have strictly followed the target, improved the working mechanism, and launched the work of eliminating the ‘100+’ rectification points in an all-round way, and they achieved the normalization of regulation and promote a number of established work such as the management of "Line Chaos", the regulation of "The Low, The Small and The Scattered", and the project construction. After continuous renovation work, the appearance of the towns and villages has been improved, among which the Chishi village is also rated as the Provincial Level 3A Village.
Located at the east side of Yunhe County, the Xitantou village in Shitan town was built beside the water, and the fishing culture prevailed there. As a result, the village oriented itself as ‘Town of Boats and Fishing’. With its unique appearance and unified shop decorations, the Xitantou village after the renovation shows the sight of the fishing boats with fishing songs. The beautiful natural environment also attracts many visitors and food lovers.
The "Six Towns and Six Scenes" have become better and better and provided a satisfactory transcript during the May Day holidays, creating a new landscape of the countryside. For example, the Chishi “Love Saint Island” and “Rose Town" received a total number of 40 thousand tourists with an income of 550 thousand yuan. Jinshuitan, ‘Fairy Palace Jinshui Town’ attracted more than 3000 tourists with a total of 600 thousand tourism revenue (including Yunhe Lake Fairy Palace Scenic Area); the tourism revenue of Shitang "Town of Boats and Fishing" increased 40% compared to the same period last year...
“The rise of small town tourism is inseparable from the continuous improvement of the environment in towns, which is inseparable from the continuous deepening of the work of the comprehensive improvement of small towns’ environment. Next, we will strictly follow the three-year action for the comprehensive renovation of the small towns’ environment, and vigorously implement the strategy of rural revitalization, and make all efforts to build the ‘Six Towns and Six Scenes’, so as to gather more popularity for rural tourism”, said the responsible person of the County Town Administration Office.
