Sanya in Macau to promote Hainan-HK-Macau yacht individual tours
On October 25th, 2019, the Hainan (Sanya)-Hong Kong-Macau Yacht Individual Travel Promotional Conference (Macau Stop) was held at Macau Fisherman’s Wharf. The event was part of Sanya’s efforts to boost yacht individual tours between Sanya and Macau.
The Sanya delegation consisted of Mr. Hu Xiaoming, Director of the Sanya Yacht and Sailing Association; personnel from the Sanya Tourism, Culture, Radio, Television, and Sports Bureau; and personnel from Sanya Yacht Service Co., Ltd.
At the event, the Sanya delegation promoted the city’s unique tropical seaside vacation offerings, new tourism products, and sea routes. The delegation’s efforts were part of a broader effort to promote the establishment of the Hainan Free Trade Zone (Port), and to highlight the face that the zone has created easier access for overseas yachts to the city.
In addition, at the Asia Pacific Yacht Industry Macao High Level Forum, Nam Kwong Group Company Limited, together with the Sanya Yacht and Sailing Association, signed a framework agreement on the Hainan-Macau Yacht Individual Travel Cooperation.
Driven by the development of the Hainan Free Trade Zone (Port), Hainan became the first province in China to carry out a pilot program that would temporarily allow overseas yachts to enter some of its waters.
Sanya has been working to comprehensively promote the implementation of relevant policies, actively improving overseas yacht guarantees, and simplifying the province’s entry procedures with the aim of further enhancing the opening up of Hainan’s yacht industry.
Sanya has welcomed 155 overseas yacht visits since 2018. The amount of tariff guarantees provided for overseas yachts is RMB 175 million. Sanya has a pleasant climate, unique coastal tourism resources, clear seawater, and diverse tourism products, which together create a good atmosphere for yachting tourism.
Sanya is constantly improving support services for yacht tourism. The city is actively building the Sanya Yacht Tourism Service Center, which will provide more convenient and high-quality services for overseas yachts upon its completion. The city is attaching great importance to designing a number of coastal scenic spots, new fishing and diving spots, as well as increasing public yacht berths so that overseas yachts can come to Sanya conveniently and enjoy their stays.
