Advance towards a strong tourism city mainly based on project construction.

The water of six bays, including Sanjiaolong Bay, Dalong Bay and Xiaolong Bay, is blue as jade to be like pearls scattering in high mountains and lofty hills, and the bays rank the first in the country by the number, centralized distribution, different forms and integrated preservation. Based on the huge tourism potential contained by it, the city planned and invested RMB 10 billion in building Longwan tourism resort. Currently, Jinchuan Tourist Service Center, volcano culture exhibition hall, agricultural sight-seeing and pick-up farm and other projects have been fully opened to the public, adding rich contents and services for the tourism in Longwan.
