Located in the hinterland of the Central Plains, and the middle and lower reaches of the Yellow River, Henan has a long history, splendid culture, magnificent mountains, and rich humanistic and natural tourism resources. In addition, it has a large population, good location and developed traffic. So, it enjoys exceptional advantages to develop tourism. As early as 1990s, the Provincial Party Committee and the Provincial Government have clearly put forward the development strategy of "to pave a way with tourism, to promote a full range of opening up and to prosper Henan's economy". Green tourism can make people long living in the city away from noise and pollution, enable them to get close to the nature and gain a healthy body. Tourism can protect environment and ecological balance, which is a response to the national strategic objective of "taking the road of sustainable development". The richness of the green tourism resources in Henan provides the basis for its development.
