Taizhou in East China's Zhejiang province recently made the list of the top 10 most beautiful cities in China, local media reported.
The other nine cities were Bazhong, Anshun, Xiaogan, Yueyang, Yantai, Guilin, Huangshan, Yulin and Chaozhou.
The list, which was unveiled at a conference held in Chengdu, capital of Southwest China's Sichuan province, on May 5, evaluated cities from across the country from perspectives of city image, environment, afforestation rate, urban landscapes as well as previous honors conferred to them.
The list was made based on a survey jointly sponsored by China Media Group, the National Bureau of Statistics, and China Post Group Corporation. Since its inception in 2006, 100,000 questionnaires have been given out to people in 154 cities across the nation every year, with more than 90 percent receiving responses.
For 11 years in a row, Taizhou has been ranked among the top three cities in terms of ecological environment in Zhejiang, and has for many years been listed among cities with the best air quality in China. In 2022, Taizhou was also ranked first in Zhejiang in a national appraisal of performance in improving surface water quality.
