Hainan to limit tourist numbers to scenic spots during Spring Festival holiday
Hainan’s tourism authorities have urged local hotels to carry out a plan to ensure reasonable hotel room rates on the island and control the number of tourists to scenic spots to avoid overcrowding for the upcoming Spring Festival holidays
During the holiday, major shopping sites catering to specialties and tropical fruits must be approved by the authorities concerned, in order to prevent customer-cheating and compulsory consumption, according to the price control bureau.
Meanwhile, measures will be worked out to try and prevent traffic jams, taxi refusals and injuries during the holidays.
Apart from hotel room rates, price intervention rules to curb the surging prices of hotel buffets during the Spring Festival holiday have also been issued by the provincial government. Separate prices for buffet and breakfast in a hotel are not allowed to exceed 300 yuan per person, while lunch and dinner are not allowed to exceed 400 yuan per person (service charged included).
