2008-12-14 The Changing Lifestyle in A Jing Ethnic Village
    2008-12-14 09:32:20     CRIENGLISH.com

 Hello and welcome to this special edition of  China Horizons to mark the 50th anniversary of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. I'm your host Du Lijun.

In this edition, we'll take a look at a boarding school in Guangxi and find out the changes in education in the autonomous region over the past five decades.

Then we'll travel to Hongyan village where people work their way to better lives through farmhouse tours and fruit cultivation.

And finally in our travel segment 'On the Road', our guide Ning Yan will take us on a trip on a peninsula in Guangxi and experience the changing lifestyle in China's Jing ethnic group.

For all this and more, stay tuned to  China Horizons on 'China Radio International'.

  • The Story of Qishi Minority Nationality School
    The story of Qishi Boarding School is only one example of the development of education in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. Numerous village schools are following their success, and contributing to improvements in local education.

  • The Prospering of Hongyan Village
    Among the verdant hills and clear waters, villas with unique ethnic Yao characteristics can be seen over hundreds of acres of ripe golden persimmons. This is the small village of Hongyan.

  • The Changing Lifestyle in A Jing Ethnic Village
    Living near the sea and on the border of the country, the Jings use the advantages of the location to develop the aquatics and fishing industries. Their income has increased greatly.

Thank you Ning Yan. And with that we end this edition of China Horizons to mark the 50th anniversary of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.
