Taohuayuan Tourism Development

     Taohuayuan is one of the nation’s well-known scenic spots, close to the 319 National Highway. It was legendarily described in a famous essay “Tao Hua Yuan Ji (The Peach Colony)” by Tao Yuanming, an outstanding poet in the Eastern Jin Dynasty in ancient China, and hence the name “Taohuayuan”. Literary men like Li Bai, Meng Hao Ran, Liu Yu Xi, Lu You and Zhu Xi etc. in successive dynasties have all left the place with either historic traces or literary works. From the city and going against the Yuan River, there are numerous picturesque scenic spots. Up till now, except that Taohuayuan has undergone some development, the one hundred mile long scenic belt along the Yuan River is still a virgin land, which possesses great potential and value for tourism development.
