Taizhou's Tiantai county recently made the list of top 10 counties (districts) in Zhejiang in terms of boosting common prosperity through cultural and tourism development.

A number of cultural and tourism venues and products from the county were also listed as provincial models.

Taizhou's cultural and tourism sectors have in recent years maintained a robust development momentum.

In 2021, Taizhou received more than 36 million tourists, generating 42.39 billion yuan ($6.52 billion) in tourism revenue, official statistics show.

The city also made the 2021 list of Chinese cities with the most developed tourism sector.

Five places from Taizhou – the county-level cities of Linhai, Wenling and Yuhuan, as well as the counties of Tiantai and Xianju - made it to the 2022 list of the top 100 counties (county-level cities) in China in terms of comprehensive tourism strength.

Linhai was ranked 13th, while Wenling, Tiantai, Xianju and Yuhuan were ranked 18th, 23rd and 49th and 81st respectively, according to a report recently released by a Beijing-based consultancy.

As of the end of last year, Taizhou had 17 national intangible cultural heritage items and 103 national A-level scenic spots, including two national 5A level ones and 18 national 4A level ones.
