Highlights of the Resort

Tianhetan Scenic Area always enjoys rich forestation and clear waters. A poet once lived here and left behind many poems. There may well be rich water resources here, but for much of the time in the past, the local people suffered from floods. When the warming conch was blown, everyone would be extremely scared. The floods flowed everywhere and their world broke down into a nightmare. After that, everyone would cry their hearts out. But that was the old and fearful story. In 1990, water conservancy improvements commenced here.
In Guiyang city, the courtyard culture and the mansions are fully restored. Guiyang Story Street provides the simplest and the most primitive way of life in Guiyang. It mainly provides specialties and snacks in Guizhou. The Grand Cross, the Fountain (Bronze Statue), Jinqiao Hotel, and Mao’s Mansion are all landmarks.
