Between October 2011 and November 2013, nearly thirty visitors from fifteen mostly overseas countries came to visit the Second Home of Lifechanyuan to observe, investigate, and experience our life. They came from the United States and Canada, Australia and New Zealand, from Belgium, England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, and Switizerland in Europe, and from our Asian neighbors of India, Japan, and Malaysia. They learned through diverse channels that there exists in Yunnan Province, China, a community called the New Oasis for Life–the Second Home, with a unique set of values and a life mode which drew them to visit, in many cases from many thousands of miles away. The overwhelming majority of these guests were impressed with our community. They praised the people, the beautiful and natural environment, and they appreciated the friendly, diligent, kind, and sincere qualities they witnessed. They told us how they enjoyed our simple, natural, happy, free, and pleasant life. On a different level, they told us that they hope to visit the Second Home again but to stay longer, that they would like there to be more branches of the Second Home outside China, and that they would love to recommend more people to come, to visit, and to experience the beauty here.
We believe the Second Home will continue to receive greater attention from more overseas friends as international communication continues to expand, and that people who are pursuing a place with our unique new values and life mode will soon blossom like the grasses after spring rains. Traditional values and lifestyles will fade away, communal life will become a global trend, and many more people from different cultures, countries, and backgrounds will come to the Second Home to visit, investigate, and experience. We believe this new life mode will surely be accepted and loved by all diligent, sincere, kind, honest, and trustworthy people who have sought and longed for a happy, peaceful, colorful, and free life. These beautiful new life values and the new life mode will gradually but surely spread and the world will usher in a sunny, splendid, and beautiful new age!
Please enjoy some lovely and beautiful moments from these international friends and visitors to our home.
