Updated: 2023-04-25

Focusing on the long-term goal of "building a world tourism destination", Hechi has been developing multiple tourism formats, combining tourism development with culture, rural areas, commerce, wellness, and consumption.

The Cotton Tiankeng Tourism Resort in Luocheng Mulam autonomous county has transformed its tourism format from traditional sightseeing tours to vacation, wellness, and leisure tourism. Tourists can now visit the ancient houses of the Mulam ethnic group, experience an original Mulam welcoming ceremony, and experience traditional festivals such as the Yifan Festival. They can also participate in ethnic sports competitions, and appreciate unique Mulam ethnic cultural projects.

As a result, the scenic area has received over 80,000 tourists within the first quarter of 2023, with an estimated annual tourist throughput of over 300,000.
