The county is known for its production of Xuan paper and its historic villages.[1]

Tourist spots

Preservation of the county's historic villages has been challenging. According to a local official, "The key to preserving villages such as Chaji ... was to convince villagers to stay and not move away to work in the big cities."[2][3] Tourist facilities for visitors to Chaji "have been built on the periphery of the ancient village to retain its pastoral landscape."[4]
