Hainan's Changjiang develops rural tourism in remote Li town
"Before last year, our village was too remote to sell any coconuts, but now my monthly income from renting out the four rooms in my house is 5,000 to 6,000 yuan ($783 to $941)," said Lin Deqiang, a homestay owner in Sanpai village, Wangxia town, Changjiang Li autonomous county, Hainan province, when talking about the changes in his hometown.

Wangxia is located in the hinterlands of Bawangling National Forest Park in Hainan. Due to inconvenient transportation and weak infrastructure, it was once the remotest and poorest town in Changjiang.
In recent years, the town has been working to develop eco-tourism and rural tourism, relying on its unique natural resources and the distinct culture of the Li ethnic group.
In 2019, Changjiang launched construction on "Lihuali" cultural tourism town in Wangxia, according to Sun Jing, deputy director of the rural revitalization bureau of Changjiang Li autonomous county.
After years of development, Wangxia has realized a historic transformation, going from an impoverished mountainous area to a unique tourist destination and a model for rural revitalization. Since May 2020, Wangxia has received about 150,000 tourists, and its tourism revenue has exceeded 9 million yuan.

"The orchids in our village are in high demand, and the supply is struggling to keep up," according to Wu Juncai, a member of the rural revitalization team in Da'an village, Baisha Li autonomous county, Hainan province.
Since 2019, the Da'an town government has been working to introduce orchid planting as a way to help villagers increase their incomes and boost rural revitalization.

Wu said that the base currently has 11 greenhouses containing 250,000 orchids. They are managed by a professional cooperative, and the village's rural revitalization team is responsible for providing supervision and guidance. According to the season, the base hires neighboring farmers to participate in daily maintenance and trains a group of skilled workers in the orchid industry to drive employment and increase farmers' income.
Baisha has steadily increased farmers' income by promoting high-quality industrial and agricultural development. It has been helping farmers start businesses on e-commerce platforms. As of the end of October 2021, the county's e-commerce platforms have sold over 67.4 million yuan ($10.6 million) in agricultural products, increasing the incomes of 26,172 farmers, said Chen Baizhan, director of the rural revitalization bureau of Baisha Li autonomous county.
