Village turns to tourism to increase rural income

The village of Huamao in Southwest China's Guizhou province is a role model of benefiting from developing rural tourism.

About an hour's drive from Zunyi city, Huamao is home to a mix of Han Chinese and people from the Miao ethnic group. The village and the area that surrounds it have been hailed as prime examples of successful poverty reduction policies.

The local government has beautified the village by cleaning the streets, removing waste and trash, and renovating locals' houses. To attract tourists, the government has also helped villagers to develop and sell local crafts such as pottery and baijiu, China's traditional rice spirit.

Many villagers have turned their homes into hotels where they provide meals, rooms and activities -- for example, visitors can pick fruit on farmland or learn how to make traditional pottery.
