Sanya tourism picks up dramatically in November 2011
November has proved to be a promising month for hotels in Sanya, as tourists are drawn to the city for its extraordinarily warm weather.
The occupancy rate of most five-star hotels in Sanya reached over 90% and some of them have been fully booked for one to two months ahead.
Li Shangjun, the GM of sales in a Sanya hotel said he had positive expectations for the tourism sector since the peak season is approaching.
Compared with other tourist cities, Sanya is one of the hottest destinations in November, with its suitable tropical climate attracting more domestic tourists who want to stay away from the cold winter.
In addition, Sanya is also a popular destination for overseas tourists during this period. The number of tourists from Russia accounts for 30% of total hotel visitors.
