Over the past few days, many tourists came to the tourist attraction in Gula Town, Binyang County, Nanning for the newly-produced rice paddy artworks.
The artworks in Gula Town this Autumn were made by five species of rice including red-leaf rice, purple-leaf rice and local commonly seen green-leaf rice, applying the creative elements of Tiananmen Gate Tower, stone lions and the Great Wall, etc. Gula Town is one of the first towns in Guangxi to create artworks of paddy and since 2016 the local government invited professional art teams to design and create the artworks of paddy. The artworks attracted many tourists from other places each year, which gained local income and revitalized the businesses of agritainment and guesthouses. Now the fragrant rice industry in the town has become a model of integration of the first, second and third industries.
