Laojiazhai is located in Xionglong Village, Fenghuang County, Xiangxi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture, Hunan Province. In July 2018, Laomiaozhai integrates Miao handicrafts and tourism after relocating the poorer people from inhospitable areas. The move helps inherit traditional skills and increase villagers’ income. By the end of 2018, 261 people living in 61 poor villages were lifted out of poverty. (Photo/Xue Yuge, Xinhua News Agency)
