Jointly built by iGreen Group and Yantai Yeda Economic Development Group, it consists of a floral theme park, a commercial street and tourism community, covering floral art, cultural display, ecological recreation and science education.
The first phase to open is called Landscape Garden, covering an area of 25 hectares. It will include a giant Floral Tapestry, Rock Garden, Floral Ocean, Multifloral Street, Children’s Garden and Cloud Mountain viewing platform. Leisure activities such as all-terrain vehicles, rainbow grass slides, hurricane ziplines and multiple facilities are also provided for families with kids.
In addition to the Laimou Cultural Town, Yantai Economic & Technological Development Area has promoted a series of projects to boost the cultural tourism industry growth. The developers will further launch another round of high-quality development for Yantai city in the near future.
