As an essential content of holistic tourism, rural recreational tourism has increased the income of local ethic minorities in Weixi County.

He Jinying is a Naxi woman living in the Hada village of Tacheng Town, Weixi County.

When we visited her home on August 15, she was cleaning her four guest rooms, which were adapted from previous cattle cottages.

Her five-year-old son was sitting on the sofa and watching a cartoon, while her husband was working as the chef at a hotel in the village.

In the past years, an increasing number of visitors have come the village, enriching the villagers.

"We offer our guests RMB 960 and RMB 1,200 daily packages: the 960 service include three meals and a room, while the 1,200 package has an extra outdoor barbecue," said He.

In July, the guest rooms and meals brought her a gross income of 100,000 yuan.

"Some guests asked us to teach them how to make tofu with traditional grind stones at home, others proposed to have cooking exchanges with us. These activities proved good experiences, and the guests liked them a lot."

The guests of He are mostly vacation-goers from China's coastal cities, especially Shanghai. They come for a change, getting away temporarily from the crowd.

He's husband also help locals to sell their specialties to the outside world, including walnuts, honey and hams. All are organic foods.

By doing so, her husband has got to know many business people outside, and some also became their guests.

He Jinying's guest rooms are wellkept, and the lovely court yard is decorated with flowers and lush plants, contributing repeated visits.
