Hainan to build characteristic towns, 5 model towns take shape
According to relevant plans, Hainan will focus on building a batch of characteristic towns across the island in 2013.
The local government stressed the importance of cultural characteristics during the planning and construction of the towns, which include the Mission Hills Town, Haitang Bay Scenery Town, Boao Paradise Town, Fushan Coffee Town and Sandao Tourism Town in Baoting County.
As each town has its own special tourism resources and cultural background, construction on the towns will be based upon different architectural styles and building methods, and include a range of facilities to encourage tourists to visit.
As an important part of Hainan's urban development, the construction of characteristic towns will be a new drawing card for boosting tourism in the various areas.
