Shuimo Township an "unbelievable" model for post-disaster reconstruction

I couldn't believe that this place was really one of the worst-hit areas in the quake, she said after visiting Shuimo Township in Wenchuan County in the Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture of Aba in Sichuan last minute China travel deals.

Yingxiu Township of Wenchuan, about 10 km from Shuimo, was the epicenter of the magnitude-8.0 quake that left more than 80,000 people dead or missing.

Golen was among about 600 delegates from 60 countries and regions who participated in the month-long Sichuan International Cultural Tourism Festival, which kicked off earlier this month in Shuimo Township in observance of the third anniversary of the catastrophe, which falls on May 12.

Among the delegates were representatives from the World Tourism Organization (WTO), World Travel and Tourism Council and the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA). They visited some of the worst-hit regions to learn about reconstruction and tourism recovery after the quake.

In Shuimo Township, visitors can see exquisite tile-roofed wooden buildings featuring a typical style of the local Qiang people as well as stores selling all kinds of Qiang-style handicrafts arrayed along winding stone alleys in the small town.

An official with the organization commission of the tourism festival told Xinhua that after their best tours of China in Shuimo, many delegates saw the town' s achievement in post-quake reconstruction as "unbelievable" and said that it "could hardly be achieved in other countries."

"They were deeply impressed when they saw the pictures of the old and new Shuimo," said the official.

The reconstruction plan of Shuimo Township received the "Global Best Implementation of Post-Disaster Reconstruction" award in the Sixth Global Forum on Human Settlements held at the United Nations headquarters earlier this month.

The plan highlighted ecologically-friendly and low-carbon concepts, as well as reconstruction projects that were well-integrated with people's lives, Dr. Noel Brown, a former United Nations Environment Program official, said at the awards ceremony.

The 2008 quake killed 92 people and seriously damaged buildings and much of the public infrastructure in Shuimo, which had earlier been home to 63 companies that were known for high pollution and excessive energy consumption.

Two years after the quake, all 63 of the companies had been shut down. Shuimo has become an environmentally-friendly tourist attraction showcasing authentic Qiang culture.

The reconstruction was conducted under a plan formulated by the urban design center of the Beijing-based Peking University with the aid of Foshan City in the southern province of Guangdong popular China travel package.

Soon after the disaster, the central government ordered 18 provinces and municipalities to pair up with 18 quake-hit counties and cities in Sichuan to provide reconstruction assistance.

"As of now, a total of 27,564 post-quake reconstruction projects, out of the planned 29,692 projects, have been completed," said Sichuan Vice Governor Wei Hong on April 18, adding that 787.1 billion yuan (about 120 billion U.S. dollars), or 91 percent of the total budget of 865.8 billion yuan, has been spent.

With an investment of 130 million yuan, workers from Foshan built Shuimo into a Qiang-style tourism town that includes 170 residential buildings and accommodates over 300 families.

"I was a farmer before the quake, but now I am a boss," said Yu Pingliang, who runs a two-story teahouse that also provides lodging in the town. "During the Spring Festival holiday this year, I earned more than 10,000 yuan."

Before the 2008 quake, the per capita disposable income of urban and rural residents in Wenchuan County was 9,450 yuan and 2,790 yuan. In 2010, those numbers climbed to 12,780 yuan and 3,330 yuan respectively, according to county government data.

"After my on-location investigation in Wenchuan and Beichuan, I saw sweeping changes in infrastructure and tourism development of the quake-hit regions," said Zoltan Somogyi, executive director of the WTO, adding that although it was his first visit to these places, he saw videos and pictures showing the ravaged counties.

Sichuan's successful experience in post-disaster reconstruction should certainly be shared with the world, he said.

Sichuan's people set a model for us, as they actively rebuilt their hometowns and turned over a new leaf, said John Marian Koldowski, deputy CEO of PATA.

Fenghuang's Hunan Cuisine

One would own one reason to go to Fenghuang last minute China travel deals, some are meaning to the searching of towns in the fiction, some are striving for a happiness, some just want to leave the distressed behind. As for me, i only come here for food.



I used to go to many places to taste the food, but not as much as my friend, who would abandon the beautiful sceneries for the food. As i am in Chengdu, it is easier and more convenient to go to Fenghuang by train, just spend a night in the train, i can arrive my destination the next morning. My collagemate lives in Chongqing, therefore, she comes there earlier than me.



Hunan Travel Guide



There are many delicious food in Fenghuang, no matter it is the particular Hunan restaurant or stalls along the roadside, you can smell its delicious flavor far away. If you decided to go to Fenghuang, apart from the luggages, you should also prepare a large stomach well. It is true that the farther away from the river bank, the cheaper the dishes become.



However, with the food guide best tours of China available this time, i don’t have to search for delicious food by following the tips on the internet, we choose the restaurants that local people mostly visit, though it is not poetry as in the ancient town, food there are more tasty. Dawancai here has some fineness pig, in this case, vegetables become more delicious. The rice wine that my friend got from the local people is totally different from the one which sold on the market, and it is the most delicious rice wine that i ever took.



Fenghuang Ancient Town



Close to the Hong bridge, there is a busy market, stew duck there is delicious, the more spicy the food is, the more food you want to taste. The most frequency place that we came is the Fenghuang Rd where is full of noddles, boiled fish with pickled cabbage and Chili, beef offal, and so on, the whole street is almost filled with staffs of bears and barbecue.



We also went to Baisha popular China tours, though it is not the traveling spot, i fancy the streets there which are green and serene. It was rainy at that time, it was not dusty walking on the green stones, waterfall at the end of the road was fierce and it wet out my trousers.



Zhangjiajie Travel Guide



I came there for food, and i came back with satisfaction given by the food, i think it is worthy to taste the delicious food there as i believe once you set off for travel to China, you can get what you want.
