I read today on Reuters about a new tourist town in China.
Now a while back in this post I said that … There are certain places I’d like to go in my life (I’d love to visit Alaska, Paris, and there’s this beach I need to go to with my friend, JK). All fine and good places. But I think I’ve found my slice of heaven.

“Women’s town” to put men in their place
Thu Apr 26, 2007 9:09AM EDT
BEIJING (Reuters) – Chinese tourism authorities are seeking investment to build a novel concept attraction — the world’s first “women’s town,” where men get punished for disobedience, an official said Thursday.
The 2.3-square-km Longshuihu village in the Shuangqiao district of Chongqing municipality, also known as “women’s town,” was based on the local traditional concept of “women rule and men obey,” a tourism official told Reuters.
The motto of the new town would be “women never make mistakes, and men can never refuse women’s requests,” Chinese media have reported.
When tour groups enter the town, female tourists would play the dominant role when shopping or choosing a place to stay, and a disobedient man would be punished by “kneeling on an uneven board” or washing dishes in restaurant, media reports said.

Signed — she who must be obeyed.
