Vlog: Nujiang beautiful highway helps the villagers out of poverty
The Nujiang Lisu Autonomous Prefecture in southwest China's Yunnan Province used to be one of the country's poorest areas. The highway here, which was built in 2019, stretches almost 300 kilometers. It's dubbed the "beautiful road," making it a lot easier for tourist groups and buses to drive directly into towns and villages and benefiting over 300,000 locals along the way. It's promoted tourism along the Nujiang Valley and in doing so has helped local residents get out of poverty.
