Hainan promotes space-themed travel destination
Author:Ma Zhiping  Source:China Daily   

A village in tropical Hainan province is to become the island's first space tourism destination, according to local government plans.

Residents of Haosheng village, about 5 kilometers from the Wenchang Satellite Launch Center, have already witnessed changes since the center began operations last year, with many now selling food to visitors who turn out to watch launches.

The Wenchang city government wants villagers to be even better off by taking advantage of the space technologies, such as by cultivating and selling vegetables grown from seeds developed through experiments in space.
