Jiashan to welcome visitors from Shanghai
Jiashan County in neighboring Zhejiang Province is stepping up efforts to spur tourism by distributing coupons worth 1.5 million yuan (US$214,350) and launching new itineraries to attract visitors from Shanghai.
The county in the Yangtze River Delta Ecology and Greenery Integration Demonstration Zone is being developed into a tourism landmark, the Jiashan County Administration of Culture, Radio and Television, Tourism and Sports said.
The county’s Yunlanwan Scenic Area, known for its hot spring, has launched a two-day itinerary combining food, sightseeing and culture after inter-provincial group tours halted by the coronavirus outbreak resumed on July 14, its operator said in Shanghai on Monday.
The trip will take tourists to the Yunlanwan Hotspring Resort, Yunlanwan Water World, Liaofan Academy to learn traditional Chinese culture, the Cloud Living Room to see a painting exhibition and locations that feature in popular Chinese reality shows.
Visitors will be able to taste famous Jiashan delicacies such as duck and wonton boiled in a casserole and Yunlanwan sweet-scented osmanthus chicken during their trip.
Jiashan is home to Xitang ancient town, Biyun Flower Sea, Aficion Chocolate Town and Jiashan Museum. There is also plenty to eat, with typical Jiashan dishes that include steamed meat with rice flour in lotus leaf and steamed crab.
