According to information from Rizhao Tourism Development Commission, Rizhao received nearly 3.24 million tourists during the National Day Golden Week, 17.01 percent higher than last National Day holiday, with tourism income rising by 20.33 percent to nearly RMB 1.12 billion Yuan.
      During the holiday, relevant tourism departments and enterprises in Rizhao draw on their own strength, dig into local tourism resources, and come out with colorful tourism activities, such as the Third Beach Cultural Week held by Rizhao Ocean Park, activities themed “Sports and Family” by Rizhao National Coastal Forest Park, “Popular Ocean Science Education” research courses developed by Shunfeng Sunshine Ocean Farm in Lanshan District and the First Tourist Commodities Contest and trade fair for characteristic tourism products in Ju County.
      Rural tourism also presents various highlights. Citizens take their self-guided tours by their own vehicles to pick fruits, enjoy beautiful autumn scenery, experience farming and life in rural areas. The First Lily Festival held in the Flower Fairy Scenic Spot of Donggang District attracts 156 thousand visitors; Happy Farm in Xixian of Lanshan District and Heng Moutain and Sky Lake Eco-Tourism Area in Ju County become new attractions through activities like picking Chinese chestnuts and farming; guesthouses with distinct features are quite popular and selling like hot cakes. With thorough implementation of the strategy of “Prospering Rizhao with Tourism”, a new pattern for tourist development featuring integrated ocean and mountain resources, urban and rural interaction and overall development of the city is gradually taking shape.
