During the day in summer, Peng Village was bustling. Lotus was beautifully blooming on the water. The air was full of pleasing fragrance. Visitors admired the flowers and tried lotus-root picking.
It was the first Lotus culture festival held in Peng Village (in the south of Maoming). It aimed to publicize Peng Village’s “lotus culture” and promote the construction of beautiful new village.
Supported by the sponsor, a variety of activities were held: lotus appreciation, photo competition, dancing party, and calligraphy and paintings exhibition. All these activities contributed to forming a poetic scenery.
In recent years, thanks to the economic development and village renovation, Peng Village’s tourism industry has prospered. The village committee dean pointed out that Peng Village is the biggest ecological park in Maoming, so he hoped to take this advantage to establish a platform for the government’s external communication and to meet the demand of tourism for city people so as to boost local economy.
Apart from lotus, there is sunflower field, grape valley, forest park, and so on in Peng Village. If you want to enjoy some fresh and beautiful rural sceneries, come to Peng Village in Nantang Town, Gaozhou(高州市南塘镇彭村).
