Shanghai's tourism authorities revealed 30 star minsu (B&Bs) on Monday as the city's minsu experience week, part of the 2019 Shanghai Tourism Festival, kicked off in Jinshan District.

It was part of the city's efforts to develop countryside tourism and raise the quality and service of minsu in the city's suburbs, the Shanghai Administration of Culture and Tourism said.

Of the 30 minsu, eight are rated five-star and 11 four-star. The criteria cover a range of indexes such as venue and facilities, accommodation, service, catering, traffic, the environment, safety and management, the administration said.

SuYu Homestay in the Pudong New Area, Jiangnan Lianxiang in Jinshan District and Xieyuan in Chongming District were among the eight top minsu.

Six villages — Yuye Village in Jinshan District, Wufang Village in Fengxian District, Xianqiao and Qianwei villages in Chongming District, Dayu Village in Jiading District and Gexin Village in Minhang District were recommended as key countryside tourism destinations during the event.

During the countryside minsu experience week, more than 60 hostels in the city's rural areas will host various activities. An electronic map revealing the city's suburban tourism destinations has been released by the administration.

Minsu does not quite fit into any specific category of accommodation and the city authorities released a guideline in September last year to encourage the development of minsu and regulate the market at the same time. A number have since been licensed.

Minsu should be less than 800 square meters with fewer than 14 rooms, according to the guideline. There are also rules on operators, safety, staff and finances.

The guideline rules that minsu should have a standard hotel-style registration system for visitors.
