"For 14 years, our business has been good, especially considering that many foreign returnees will come back in July and August for a few days to spend the summer vacation. In order to make the tourists comfortable, I renovated my houses last year. The farm-stay of Yong Hai Home is one of the earliest farm-stay produced by Che Gen village in Baishanzu town. Since its opening in 2004, the average number of tourists has been around 40 thousand per year.
Mao Yonghai, the responsible person of Yonghai farm-stay, told reporters that farmhouse eco-cuisine is a sign of attracting customers in the store. He rented more than 10 acres of land for planting various kinds of farmhouse eco-cuisine. More than 20 kinds of cuisines let tourists enjoy the summer vacation in Baishanzu, while having good meals.
Over the past 10 years, Mao Yonghai has witnessed the changes in the tourism industry of Baishanzu. "With the development of Baishanzu tourism, there are more farm-stay and more tourists. At the beginning, there were only three in the town, and now there are 19. More and more foreign tourists come to spend summer vacation and they give high praise for Qingyuan tourism, Mao Yonghai said.
Qingyuan County has obvious advantages during summer vacation. According to statistics, in the past few years, the average temperature in urban areas in July was 26.9 degrees Celsius, of which the average temperature in Baishanzu scenic spot in July was only 22 degrees Celsius.
