It is learned from the Agritourism Promotion Meeting held on March 31 that Ningbo will speed up the agritourism by promoting the transformation and upgrading from countryside sightseeing to rural leisure holidaying and living. It is hoped that in three years, the agritourism will become an important growth pole for Ningbo's tourism, the driven industry for the rural economic transformation and upgrading and the livelihood industry benefiting the citizens. Ningbo will be constructed as a first-class domestic agritourist destination featuring mountain and ocean-side vacations.
To optimize the spatial layout of the agritourism, Ningbo has organized such related departments as tourism, agricultural affairs office and land & resources to draft "the improvement planning for Ningbo's agritourism". According to the planning, based on the mountain and sea resources, Ningbo will focus on the clustering development of agritourism with the Siming Mountain area and Xiangshan Port and Sanmen Bay area as the two major tourist destinations. Meanwhile, it will accelerate the construction of such major agritourist towns as Xikou, Huchen and Maoyang, and such major villages as Shilin, Shadi and Hongqiang. In addition, a group of demonstration towns and villages will be built with various industrial patterns, complete service functions, clear comprehensive profits and strong driving force, so as to promote the overall development of agritourism in Ningbo.
