Xiaoxiang Small Town—A Place With Sense Of Place Great landscapes always inspire remarkable piece of art, but should there be poems before Xiaoxiang? Lu You's poem perfectly described the poetic, artistic and elegant beauty of Xiaoxiang. Caishi Town is located in Lengshuitan District of Yongzhou city. It is also the first town at the confluence of Xiaoshui River and Xiangjiang River. It is famously known as Xiaoxiang Ancient Town. In Zhisuo Small Town Comprehensive Improvement of Caishi, we have come up with a concept of Renew the Image of Caishi Neighbourhood, Starting Chapter of Yongzhou Culture. It relies on the beautiful natural scenery, rich tourism resources and profound cultural heritage of Xiaoxiang. The development goal is Cultural Tourism Industry Cluster, and it is planned in a spatial layout of One Belt, Five Groups structure. Landscape upgrading used local materials and the village's recycled bricks, stone and tiles to preserve the local character. It has become a tourism friendly and liveable town core area with local characters, rich SENSE OF PLACE and neighbourhood experience. It benefited from modern civilization through urbanization and retained the rural style that bring full memory and emotions of hometown when you see the water and mountain.
