Sanya tops Chinese cities for hotel bookings during CNY
With the approach of the Chinese New Year holiday, Sanya is seeing more and more tourists flock to the city, which is leading to the large price increases, overcrowding of scenic spots and shortages of air tickets and hotel rooms.
Most air tickets from Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu and other cities to Sanya are full price for the Spring Festival, with very few discounts.
85% of rooms in the starred hotels located in Haitang Bay have been booked, and there is still in an upward trend in the hotel reservation. Moreover, all rooms of many hotels in Yalong Bay have been booked up.
The daily number of visitors to Nanshan Cultural Tourism Zone has reached 14,000 and 15,000 on weekends, and Binlanggu Valley is receiving about 4000 visitors every day.
In order to keep the market stable, the government has issued a regulation banning price increases at scenic spots.
