About Gaomi

Gaomi City is located in eastern Shandong Province between the Jiaolai and Wei rivers. It is administered under Weifang City. Known in ancient times as Yi'an, Gaomi has over 2,200 years of history and is the birthplace of famed Spring and Autumn period government minister Yan Ying, Qing era senior imperial secretary Liu Yong (Liu Luoguo), and the winner of the 2012 Nobel Prize in Literature, Mo Yan. The “Three Treasures” of Chinese folk art - puhui nianhua (“ash-dabbing Spring Festival painting” - a painting method that incorporates a base layer of ashes), clay sculpture (nisu), and paper cutting (jianzhi) have long enjoyed a fine reputation and are famous throughout the world. Famous destinations include the Zheng Ancestral Temple, the former residence of Mo Yan, Fenghuang (“Phoenix”) Park, the Nanhu (“South Lake”) Botanical Garden, the Xiaokang River, and Baiyang (“Chinese White Poplar”) Mountain.

Famous Residences
Mo Yan's old residence was built in 1912 and was renovated once in 1966. At present, this old house is in an idle state, and some old objects used by Mo Yan several decades ago are still placed in the house. There is a courtyard in front of the house with soybeans and carrots. Since Mo Yan won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2012, not only has the Gaomi Township in his novels been further known to readers in the world, but Mo Yan's former residence in Pingzhan Village, Dalan Township, Gaomi, Shandong Province has also become a new attraction for domestic tourists to visit.
