Authorities in Southwest China's Yunnan province have issued guidelines on launching a "beautiful counties" project.

In the next three years, 30 billion yuan ($4.5 billion) will be raised to help build a batch of beautiful counties with distinctive features, good functions and good environment, according to the guidelines.

 A total of 21 key areas to be improved have been mentioned in the guidelines, including the toilet revolution, public facility building and preserving cultural heritage.

 This year, about 20 qualified "beautiful counties" will be selected, while about 40 will be selected in 2020 and 2021 respectively.

Accordingly, besides “beautiful counties”, Yunnan is also building “beautiful villages” and “beautiful roads” in its endeavor to become China’s most beautiful province. Among the “beautiful roads”, the Jiangdi—Zhaokua Express Highway is one of them.

The express highway runs from Jiangdi, Luoping to Zhaokua of Luliang County and is 108.037 kilometers long. In spring,  more than 16,000 acres of rapeseed flowers are blooming among the road. Under the blue sky, the golden flowers stretch several kilometers, forming an expansive flower sea. How beautiful a journey it is to drive on such an amazing road!
