Ma'ao subdistrict and Huanglong town in Zhoushan, an island city in East China's Zhejiang province, have recently been nominated to become provincial tourism towns, according to a recent list published by the Zhejiang Provincial Department of Culture and Tourism.
A "tourism town" must have unique natural scenery, a unique architectural style, unique customs and food, well-known residents, complete public infrastructure, and efficient management.
In 2016, Zhejiang proposed establishing roughly 100 provincial tourism towns over the next five years.
