Elderly move to small town to live in retirement


Li Youtu (2nd R) does morning exercises on a small square in Wentang Township of Yichun City, east China's Jiangxi Province, Feb. 28, 2018. Wentang Township has a name for scenic Mingyue Mountain and selenium-rich hot spring. In 2016, Li Youtu and his wife Liang Aizhu from Shanghai paid a visit here, who had been looking for a livable and beautiful place to spend their retirement life. In June of 2017, they returned to the township and bought an small apartment to settle down. In recent years, among some 8,000 new households in Wentang, more than half of them are the elderly who moved to the small town to live in retirement. (Xinhua/Peng Zhaozhi)
