Lin'an District is located on the golden tourist route from Hangzhou to Mount Huangshan. It is rich in tourism resources since it has a variety of unique tourist resources such as mountains, waterfalls, canyons, solutional caves, hot springs, and skis. There are 32 scenic spots and 17 3A-level scenic villages in Lin’an District, which has long been the tourist destination for visitors in the Yangtze River Delta and known as the “backyard” of the metropolis. In recent years, aiming at urban internationalization, industrial modernization, and global scenic spots, Lin’an has taken the all-region tourism demonstration area as its starting point, to work hard to promote the development of tourism. In 2019, Lin’an will take the all-regional scenic area as the primary goal to carry out the construction of “eight routes and ten scenic spots”, which created ten demonstration villages (Qinshan Blue Bay, Wenwu Shangtian, Longmen Mystery Park, Red Leaf Guide, Tianmu Yuexiang, and Mount Damingshan) along the eight beautiful rural connection routes. Currently, the first phase of the six villages is completed, forming the development trend of Tianmu Village, with connected scenic spots.
