China's next well-known county with retirement potential, beautiful sea views, perfect summer, clean streets and pleasant air.
Where to retire? How to provide for elderly? A common question in every family. In some families in our country, older people choose home care, and some older people choose retirement care after retirement. Climatic conditions, transportation, city prices, etc. have all become issues that people should consider when choosing a place to retire.
Today, I would like to introduce you to a city in Shandong Province suitable for elderly --- Rongcheng.
1. Geographic location of Rongcheng
Rongcheng City is located in eastern part of Shandong Peninsula in my country. It is a county-level city currently under jurisdiction of Weihai City. Most of city is surrounded by ocean, facing sea on three sides.
The city covers an area of more than 1,500 square kilometers and has a long coastline. Since it is close to Yellow Sea, standing on a higher position in Rongcheng City, you can see our country's neighbor, South Korea.
2. Reasons why Rongcheng is suitable for retirement
(1) Pleasant and livable climate
It is a environmentally friendly city in terms of climate. Since Rongcheng City is located in northern part of my country, it does not have climatic characteristics of Yunnan, Hainan and other regions where spring is all year round and there are little temperature differences throughout year.
However, Rongcheng's climate is also very special among all cities in north. Due to the marine climate, Rongcheng City rarely experiences extreme heat in summer.
In summer highest temperature here does not exceed 30 degrees Celsius, and average temperature in summer is mostly around 25 degrees. Even in winter, very cold weather is rare.
Four seasons, moderate temperatures and long hours of sunshine are main climatic characteristics of Rongcheng. Humidity is high so it doesn't feel dry here. Many northern friends living in nearby provinces of Shandong prefer to come here to spend hot summer.
(2) Ideal Housing
Due to unique geographical conditions, tourism is also developing in Rongcheng. With policy support, tourism has become one of main local industries. Rongcheng City faces sea on three sides, and a large number of houses overlooking sea are also being built here. This provides great convenience for people who want to experience sea view rooms. It is not difficult to see scenery of island by opening a window in Rongcheng.
Among these sea view houses are real estate for sale, as well as apartments and houses for temporary accommodation for tourists. Therefore, tourists who come here for purpose of tourism, and those who plan to retire here, should not worry about housing issues at all. In recent years, with restructuring of Rongcheng City's urban structure, a large number of houses in countryside have been demolished, and overall planning of housing construction in city has been more and more improved.
(3) Clean and orderly urban environment
Rongcheng is known for its good air and urban environment in nearby cities. According to monitoring station, air quality in Rongcheng City can be ranked first among all county-level cities. A good air environment is inseparable from urban management, and local population is environmentally aware.
And under overall planning and management of local authorities entire city is a impeccable experience. It is difficult to find garbage accumulated on road here, and even garbage cans in city are cleaned very cleanly. The city is clean and tidy, with blue skies and white clouds, awe-inspiring, like fairy tale world of Hayao Miyazaki.
(4) Characteristic grass roof houses
Rich marine resources allow Rongcheng City to actively develop breeding and fishing while developing tourism. Rongcheng's fishing industry has a long history. People have gone to sea for generations to fish, and fishing villages of all sizes can be seen throughout coastal area. Dongchudao Village is one of many fishing villages with a history of more than 400 years. The characteristic architecture of residential buildings is most distinctive feature of these fishing villages.
The houses on Dongchu Island use stone as their main building material, which is not uncommon in housing construction, but difference is that their roofs are covered with seaweedYes, collected seaweed is woven and placed on roof of house, which can resist wind and cold. The algae house has also become one of reasons people are attracted to it.
(5) Comfortable road conditions
Although Rongcheng is not a big city, its traffic is not far behind. There are many provincial roads leading to various provinces in city, and several open ports have been built to meet needs of local truck and trade. There is a high-speed rail station within city limits, from where direct trains depart to Beijing, Shanghai and other cities.
Buses serve more than 100 lines, and railways transport 1.52 million passengers a year. The fly in ointment is that an airport has not yet been built in this city, and it is only more than 20 kilometers from Weihai Airport. Therefore, friends who want to come to Rongcheng can choose Weihai Airport near Rongcheng City as a transit point.
Third, best rest
Rongcheng is place where sun rises earliest in mainland China. It has a huge bay, suitable climate and temperature, and a clean and tidy city. Here you can go to village to listen to wind blowing wheat fields, go to beach to feel vastness of sea, meet earliest sunrise in China on beach and feel freedom of seagulls. on beach. This is what Rongcheng can give people, a seemingly small city, such an island city is ideal for elderly.
