The spotlight on the "Best Job in the World" is gradually fading after Britain's Ben Southall beat thousands of competitors around the globe to win the dream position of caretaker of a tropical Australian island. 

However, a similar contest has just been announced on May 11 for what many are calling the "Best Job in China". 

The management office of Panlongxia, a scenic spot famous for its 200,000 square meters of lavender flower fields in Guangdong, is offering 20,000 RMB per week to two females for the position called "Lavender Angels". 

The winners will act as image-ambassadors of the travel resort. The responsibilities of the "Lavender Angels" will be to inspect the lavender fields regularly and record their state of growth, as well as prevent tourists from destroying the plants and polluting the fields. 

They will have accomodations in the five-star holiday inn at the resort and enjoy free working meals. 

With such good salary and an idyllic working environment, the job is seen by many as the "best job in China." 

Candidates are supposed to be only females who are aged between 18 and 25 and are healthy, vigorous and nature-loving, said Liu Liang from the management office of Panlongxia. 

They will hold a recruitment fair from May 12 to 14 in Guangdong to select 100 candidates and put their profiles onto the internet for the public to cast their vote. 

The winner will be announced as soon as the middle of June. 

Panlongxia has the largest lavender fields in southern China. The splendid sea of lavender flowers received more than 20,000 visitors per day during the past May Day holiday. 

"Many tourists violated the rules and entered the lavender field to take pictures. They trampled on the plants and some even picked off the blooming flowers. It's a great damage to the scenic spot," Liu Liang said. 

Liu said that the main job for the "Lavender Angels" is to urge tourists to maintain the natural environment of the scenic spot. 

They are expected to help in promoting the image of the Panlongxia through various measures including shooting promotion films and opening blogs to introduce the travel destination to people around the world. 

The lavender species in Panlongxia are introduced from Hokkaido, Japan. They can grow as tall as one meter and with its dark purple color and strong fragrance; have are crowned the "Queen of Lavenders".
