South China Herbs Healthcare Scenic Town starts construction in Tunchang
Plans to turn Tunchang’s Wupo Town into a regional scenic town have been given a boost, as the South China Herbs Healthcare Scenic Town began construction on September 22nd.
Wupo Town is famous in Hainan for its medicinal herbs plantation. Hainan Medicinal Herbs Garden, the largest herbs plantation base in southern China, is located in Wupo Town.
The project will involve an investment of 235 million yuan. The local government will combine the theme of South China herbs cultivation with tourism to meet the increasing needs of the island’s growing tourism industry.
Wupo Town enjoys easy access to provincial highways connected to coastal cities including Wanning, Haikou and Sanya.
Wupo Town boasts plenty of natural resources, such as the Qing’ao Hot Springs, which are the only undeveloped natural hot springs on the island. Wupo also has the largest betel nut processing plant in the county.
