The most is the spring benefit of the year, Lixiang kapok fire red. The taste of the Spring Festival has not receded, and the kapok trees on the mountain shores of Changjiang Li Autonomous County are the most “burning” colors, they are like a little flame, stirring up the most popular tourist season in Shanhai Lixiang.
Spring is a time of recovery and renewal, and the blooming kapok brings good wishes for a prosperous new year, and now it has become a unique business card and tourism symbol of Changjiang. A “Shanhai Lixiang Garden” full of kapok is welcoming the spring breeze to tourists from all over the world and opening its arms.
Last year, Changjiang proposed to create all-season tourism. As the “opening drama”, spring tourism is a series of tourism activities designed by combining the most famous Changjiang Kapok to design a series of tourism activities “Spring Appreciation Kapok Red”, aiming to comprehensively enhance the overall tourism image of Changjiang, and at the same time improve the popularity and reputation of Changjiang tourism, so as to promote the development of Changjiang tourism and tertiary industry. In addition to allowing more people to feel, understand and experience the charm of the kapok season in an all-round way, the advantages of natural resources will be transformed into development assistance and wealth, driving local economic development and promoting the increase of people’s income.
This year’s “Spring Reward” series of tourism activities will officially start this weekend and will be held for a month in a row, when 9 themed activities will be created together with the blooming kapok to create a different tourism atmosphere.
Compared with the “Changhua Riverside Kapok Red” tourism activities held in the past few years, this year, Changjiang has connected the “Winter Climb Bawangling” series of sports tourism activities held at the end of last year in the design of the Spring Festival tourism and cultural activities, and has innovated the form and content of the activities, aiming to comprehensively display and tap the Kapok tourism resources and create a more colorful tourist destination. If the “Winter Climb to Bawangling” series of activities is a concentrated adventure to the mysterious Bawangling rainforest, then the “Spring Appreciation of Kapok Red” series of activities is a concentrated display of Changjiang’s unique ethnic, folk culture and natural landscape. Consolidating the foundation of tourism development with high-quality ecology and enriching tourism development resources with national characteristics are the tourism development ideas that Changjiang has explored in recent years for local characteristics, and take this opportunity to promote transformation and development.
Jincheng, secretary of the Changjiang Li Autonomous County Party Committee, said that one of the key tasks for Changjiang’s transformation is to make every effort to build a “first-class tourist destination in western Hainan” and expand the development of all-season tourism in the whole region. Focusing on this overall goal, Changjiang is accelerating the construction of four “national” parks, including Bawangling National Forest Park, Haiwei National Wetland Park, Qiziwan National Marine Park and Shiluo Iron Mine National Mine Park, while accelerating the development and construction of Qiziwan Tourist Resort, and starting to plan the construction of Changhua River estuary area, mine park and Tiecheng style town with high standards, and promote the upgrading of scenic spots such as Baorui Forest Park, Nuclear Power Industry Tourism Demonstration Base, and “Lixiang Flower Sea” Flower Park.
At the end of last year, Changjiang Wangxia Countryside was selected as the national “Two Mountains” practice and innovation base, relying on this advantage, Changjiang also planned the development of the “Bawangling-Wang Xia” tourism area. Comprehensively improve the basic supporting facilities, start the construction of tourist highways along the Changhua River, accelerate the construction of 100 homestays, vigorously introduce leading tourism enterprises, and stimulate the vitality of the tourism market… While constantly enriching the all-season tourism pattern of “spring appreciation of kapok red, summer mango fragrance, autumn tour of chess bay, winter climb Bawangling”, Changjiang is also making every effort to introduce a number of high-level events with high public participation, and strive to build Bawangling and Chess Bay into emerging rainforest mountain sports bases and marine sports centers.
Deliberated and adopted the “Changjiang Li Autonomous County Overall Tourism Development Plan (2018-2025)”, issued 17 policies to optimize the business environment and 28 measures to promote high-quality economic development… Tourism is being cultivated as a strategic pillar industry to stimulate the economic transformation and development of Changjiang County, and the green water and green mountains endowed by nature are becoming a “golden mountain and silver mountain” to promote economic development and increase people’s income in Changjiang’s transformation and exploration.
With the opening of kapok, the kapok style homestay in Pai’an Village, Changjiang Fork River Town, has also opened for business, which is also a kapok viewing scenic spot launched by Changjiang on the basis of the traditional Kapok red scenic spot on the bank of Changhua River. After seeing more of the blazing red between the mountains and rivers, you may wish to come to the fields, take a small train, see the kapok blooming in the fields of water, and experience the characteristic Li cuisine in addition to relaxing your body and mind. More importantly, with the help of this “Spring Reward” activity, more people will participate in tourism development.
Spring is warm and sunny, don’t you come to Changjiang to take a look?
