The county’s chief, Zen Xiumei, of Miaomeili, Zhonghe, has renovated the old alley, turning the fifty meters’ wall inside the 181 alley of Zhongshan road into a time corridor through the 3D color painting. The wall has recorded the local history, connecting the themes of “Cherry Boulevard”, “Bridges running over creek”, “Small Trail in the forest” and others. The project is estimated to complete by April this year. Tourists will feel like walking to the tunnel of time. The alley will become a special tourist attraction, attracting tourists to taking photos and check in on Facebook here.

Zen Xiumei has made the rooftop of the activity center into a place for dining.

Zen Meixiu says, in order to beautify the old mottled wall, the exposed lines, the small scaled and uneven land, they fight for the government funds to create the painting wall, and design it with the theme of the local customs. Such as the dock describing the history of the shipping in Miaomeili. She hopes that more and more people will get to know the local specialties. After the painting project complete, the tourists will continue come here non-stop. There will be no more illegal advertising posters on the wall. The corridor will turn into something brand new. The residents in Miaomeili are very glad with the changes.
