No.5 Valley Resort 中 0744-8233662 firstname.lastname@example.org
The founder of No.5 valley is Zimo Chen. After twenty years of successful business career in Beijing, he was tired of the serious air pollution and stressful lifestyle of city. He gave up million salaries, returned back to his hometown and took care of his aged mother. At that time, the small village had been nearly abandoned. The only residents were few elders and children. The desolate village is a hidden and fabulous utopia. His wife Liuyi as the internal designer and himself as the architect, they made the best of local natural resource and gradually built this large-scale result.
Liuyi and Zimo visited many world-class resorts and guesthouses over the past years. Through constantly grope, they gradually formed their own style. Distinguished from popular minimalist and over-decorated, No.5 Valley’s style is natural countryside style “Fusion Rustic”. Our resort inherits the philosophy of Tujiazu people: living in peace with nature. The wooden road is put up very high, so flowers and weeds could flourish under it. Tree house is hidden inside the dense forest, indistinguishable from its surrounding. Moreover, the design style itself also is culture inheritance of Tujiazu. Yellow mud formed the rustic wall, old woods bring a feeling of vicissitudes. Deep red dowry box consist of the memory of childhood’s home.
Nowadays our valley has more than 10000 Sq m construction area and over 1800 acres of rice fields and forest. Our resort also provide employments for over 30 local farmers. The deserted village and field cam back to life again. Sweet and clear spring water and forests are protected, egret reappear in the colorful fields. Workers thousands miles away, came home and became the valley’s master, together with valley to welcome people from all over the world.

This is an invitation to be a farmer for one year
We recruited 20 guests to become the owner of six mu(1 mu =670 ㎡) rice field for one year. As the owner of the rice field, they would receive the harvest of their field and participate in the Agrarian Culture Festival. They could participate in planting, growing, harvesting, and processing the rice.
This unique kind of rice is called “Fish spring tribute rice”(鱼泉贡米). Spring flows from the top of the mountain to water the field. Ducks and fishes live in the field, the field provides them with shrimps and insects, and their excrement further provides nutrient to the crops. Legend has it that the king of the Tujia people sent this special rice to the emperor as tribute.
