Jinggangshan in East China’s Jiangxi Province is known as a revolutionary base in modern Chinese history. This spirit continued to be passed on. In 2017, it became the first poverty-stricken county in China to shake off poverty.
Thanks to its unique history, red tourism has now become a pillar industry in Jinggangshan, where people can learn about the history of the Community Party of China and experience what it was like to be in the Red Army at that time. Tourism has provided local villagers with job opportunities and allowed them to enjoy increasing incomes and improved living conditions.
Furthermore, the city has introduced agricultural industries such as planting Jinggang grapefruit and vegetables, helping more poverty-stricken families in Jinggangshan pursue better lives. Photos: Li Hao/GT
