Hubei To Attract Tourists With Tourism Villages

Hubei is searching for featured tourism villages across the province and plans to build 100 tourism villages in the next four years to promote the development of the province's tourism industry.

According to Hubei Provincial Tourism Administration, from March to April this year a team consisted of 42 journalists will go to 200 villages of the province and collect pictures and introduction texts about these villages. Meanwhile, people are asked to vote for the villages via short messages or online. HPTA says that based on the public's votes and experts' reviews, 100 villages will be designated as tourism villages.

In the next four years, Hubei will set up a special fund for the construction of tourism villages, arranging about CNY250,000 to improve the tourism services and environment of these villages to make them famous and attract more tourists for the province.
