Beautiful rural Bohou Village in Sanya takes a new look
Located in the southwest of Yalong Bay National Tourism Zone in Jiyang District, Bohou Village/博后村 has become a hot destination for visitors from home and abroad who love the rural life.
Bohou Village rose to fame after Chinese President Xi’s visit in 2013 and made a statement that later became a catch phrase — "whether a moderately prosperous society is realized or not, only the ordinary folks can tell."
Bohou village has changed a lot since Xi visited five years ago. Since the president's visit, about 20 cooperatives have started running 70 hectares of rose plantations, earning the area the nickname of "rose valley" and helping villagers get rid of poverty.
In 2017, Bohou Village found new development opportunities as Sanya decided to beautify the village by improving its ecological environment and infrastructure. As a result, Bohou has become one of the most beautiful and cleanest villages in Hainan.
In addition, B&B hotels have been springing up in the village.
If you come to visit Bohou Village, here are some recommendations to make your stay that much more memorable.
