Crowne Plaza Sanya and La Floret Shopping Village (neighboring partner) in Yalong Bay turned off lights in exterior and public areas turned off its lights in observance of Earth Hour, the global environmental awareness event created by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) beginning at 8:30 pm on Saturday, March 26th, 2010.

As 8.30pm approached, all non-essential lights were switched off and Earth Hour was officially kicked off. 

The "Candle Light Concer"
Inside the hotel, a "Candle Light Concert" was held at Havana Plaza to encourage guests to participate in the environmental activities by turning the lights out in their rooms.
Guests gathered for the Earth Hour
During the concert, many guests stepped onto the stage to write down their support for Earth Hour and the earth sustainability on the hand-drawing backdrop made by all staffs of Crowne Plaza Sanya.

Earth Hour is a global initiative in partnership with WWF. Individuals, businesses, governments and communities are invited to turn out their lights for one hour on Saturday March 26, 2011 at 8:30 PM to show their support for environmentally sustainable action. The event began in Sydney in 2007, when 2 million people switched off their lights. By 2010, Earth Hour had created history as the largest voluntary action ever witnessed with participation across 128 countries and every continent, including the world’s most recognized man-made marvels and natural wonders in a landmark environmental action.
