In recent years, Xiehe Township of Wulingyuan District has been vigorously developing rural tourism on the basis of its advantageous tourism resources. Many villagers have participated in this industry and decorated their idle houses into homestays with unique ethnic features and beautiful natural scenery, attracting many tourists at home and abroad to visit for leisure and vacation. These homestays promote the development of the rural economy and provide good job opportunities for local villagers.

At present, according to incomplete statistics, there are more than 300 homestays with rural characteristics in Wulingyuan District, which receive nearly 10,000 domestic and foreign tourists every day. With the help of rural tourism, a large number of villagers have shaken off poverty.
