Hainan launches new system for tourism store rating
Hainan has introduced new measures for tourism store rating, according to the Quality and Technology Supervision Bureau of Hainan province.
According to the new measures, tourism stores in Hainan will be categorized into three levels, “Golden coconut”, ”Silver coconut” and “Green coconut”, in descending order based on their performances on things including quality of goods, hygiene conditions, quality of services and management.
The new system changes the rating to 3 levels from the previous 5, according to which tourism stores were listed as 5A, 4A, 3A, 2A and 1A.
Officials with the Quality and Technology Supervision Bureau of Hainan province said the new measures were launched as it was difficult to define clear criteria to separate the 5 levels of the previous rating system.
The new measures apply to all tourism stores across Hainan province.
