Hainan garners 1.89b yuan of tourism revenue during May Day holiday


Hainan received over 1.65 million tourists, generating more than 1.89 billion yuan ($280.7 million) in tourism revenue for the island province during this year's May Day holiday from May 1 to 4.

According to the Department of Tourism, Culture, Radio, Television and Sports of Hainan Province, an abundance of tourism products were offered during the period, with comprehensive tourism packages greatly contributing to the growth of the tourism market.

In addition to various tourist attractions and activities, duty-free shopping also helped attract a large number of visitors. They generated a gross sales amount of 162 million yuan, a year-on-year increase of 153.13 percent, which set a new record.

The tourism annual passes offering unlimited visits to 16 scenic spots in Hainan within a year were put into formal use on May 1.

The scenic spots include Nanwan Monkey Island, Hainan Binglanggu (Betelnut Valley) Li and Miao Cultural Heritage Park, Yanoda Rainforest Cultural Tourism Zone, and Sanya Dongtian Park. More will be encompassed in the near future.

Several bird-watching houses and platforms were recently constructed at Wuyuan River Wetland Park in Haikou to facilitate bee-eater appreciation, according to the Haikou Xiuying District Wetland Protection and Management Center.

The bird-watching houses are made of bamboo poles and the roofs are covered by camouflage sun-proof cloth. "The houses are harmoniously blended in nature, which provides a superb place for bird appreciation without frightening them," said an official of Xiuying district government.
