Welcome to Jackson Hole China
Surrounded by majestic mountain peaks, fresh air and the charm of the American Old West, this resort community is a hit with western-loving Chinese. Less than two hours from Beijing, it has a town square, cowboys and a church that’s eerily reminiscent of Wyoming.
There are more than 1500 comfortable log cabin homes decorated with taxidermy, antlers and rustic touches – and residents can enjoy a wide range of intangible things like freedom, romance and spiritual fulfillment. British filmmaker Adam James Smith documented the community in Americaville, which he will screen this week at CU Boulder. URL https://www.sunset.com/travel/welcome-to-jackson-hole-china
