Well, my hometown is the city of Huangshan, which is a small and quiet place. It is surrounded by the mountains so that it is a pretty nice place to live. The weather there is quite pleasant all year round, even in winter the temperatures are quite mild. Although Huangshan is developing a lot recently, and expanding every year, it is still a traditional town as the new architectures are built in the old-fashioned way. I think that as the tourist city, it should preserve its own characteristic to attract the tourists. In addition, the food there is excellent. You can digest a lot of local snacks that can not be tasted elsewhere. In sum, I believe my hometown is definitely worth a visit.

I was born and raised there. I only moved out when I went to university in 2002. So I had lived there for about 19 years.

Well, my hometown earns a high reputation for its Huangshan Mountain which attracts floods of tourists every year around the globe. It is renowned for its graceful pines, unusual rocks, cloud sea and hot springs. I have been there for two times. I was really attracted by its magnificent natural scenery.
