The 7 scenery towns will integrate the functions of catering, tourism and relaxation, and are to become the beneficial supplement of the Haitang Bay hotel zones and other high-grade resort communities.

The total area of the towns is 4447 mu, with a total construction area of 1.8 million square meters. 8,839 homes can be settled down within the area which will shelter nearly 38 thousand people.
