Qiaolingqian is a village nestled in mountains in Boshan district, Zibo, Shandong province.

Home to beautiful scenery such as karst caves, the mountains once kept the village unknown to the outside world.

But everything started to change in the 1990s, when an expressway was built to link the village and the other side of the mountain. It was a milestone in the village's history of development.

The expressway, which extended from two lanes in each direction later to four lanes, has made the Qiaolingqian known to more people and brought visitors into the village.

The Qiaolingqian scenic area has become a provincial-level and part of a national-level tourist attraction.

As people from outside come in for beautiful mountain and countryside views, tourism has helped the village develop.

Changes have been brought to many aspects of villagers' daily lives-convenient transportation, decent jobs and access to internet, to name but a few improvements.

Although they are living in a mountain village, the villagers enjoy just as much of a modern lifestyle as urban residents do.

A photographer who was born and raised in the village has used his camera to document how his hometown has changed over the years.

The villager, Liu Xinxi, recently published a photo album featuring pictures he took of the village. Here are some of his most interesting photos.
