Hainan to boost tourism with more cruises


South China's Hainan Province plans to develop more cruise routes to upgrade its tourism, Hainan governor Shen Xiaoming said Sunday.

According to the government work report delivered by Shen to the provincial people's congress, which opened its annual session on Sunday, Hainan in 2019 aims to add cruise routes around the main island and to its Xisha Islands.

It will also encourage cruise companies to explore routes to regions like Southeast Asia, expanding cruise services departing from Hainan, Shen said.

With its growing legion of middle-class travelers, China is emerging as a gigantic cruise market.

The Cruise Lines International Association estimates that by 2025, the number of Chinese travelers who will have experienced cruise trips will grow to 8-10 million, a surge from about 2.5 million in 2017.

Hainan has started a pilot run of its 15-day visa-free policy for tourist groups who take cruises and enter the country from ports in Hainan.

Hainan sets up pilot area of tropical rain forest park


Southern island province of Hainan has set up a pilot area of a national tropical rain forest park, local authorities said Monday.

The pilot area, located in the central mountainous terrain of Hainan, covers an area of more than 4,400 square km or about one-seventh of the island's land area, Xia Fei, director of the provincial forestry department, said at a press conference.

The project involves five national nature reserves, three provincial nature reserves, four national forest parks and six provincial forest parks.

"We will protect places in dire need of protection," Xia said, adding that the pilot area aims to protect and restore the eco-system of Hainan's rainforests.

The pilot area will last until 2020 when the national tropical rain forest park will officially be established.
