Parts of Hainan to intensify regulation of tourist market
In order to better regulate the tourism market, the government of Hainan province plans to intensify special campaigns for the tourist market of 10 Hainan counties and cities in 2013.
The special campaigns will focus on travel agencies, tourist hotels, scenic spots, shopping sites, restaurants and group tour programs of 10 counties and cities including Haikou, Danzhou, Sanya, Qionghai , Wenchang, Wanning, Chengmai, Ding’an, Lingshui and Baoting.
Business operating units that receive tourists, such as stores, restaurants, hotels and scenic spots must be approved by the authorities concerned, in order to prevent customer-cheating and compulsory consumption, according to the price control bureau.
Meanwhile, Hainan will accelerate the construction of travel information digitalization in the 10 counties and cities.
