Hainan launches tourism promotion to expand new market in Russia
On October 15th, a tourism promotion conference took place at Haikou Mission Hills and was joined by Haikou’s tourism authorities and tourism-related enterprises to promote their tourism resources to Russian travel agencies.
Early this year, a delegation consisting of nearly 100 representatives from Russian travel agencies were invited to take the special trip to Hainan to boost exchanges between the two countries in the Sino-Russian Tourism Year 2013.
In the conference, Wen Delin, the vice director of Haikou Tourism Development Commission gave a brief introduction to Haikou’s rich tourism resources and tour packages, particularly highlighting Haikou’s golf, health and medical products.
Over the past few years, Sanya has become a favorite holiday destination for Russian tourists. To benefit from the influence of Sanya, the Haikou government will integrate the resources of Sanya, Baoting, Haikou and other cities and promote their tourism resources to the Russian tourist market.
A Russian media delegation will be arranged to visit Hainan at a later time to use their platforms to promote the abundant natural tourism resourses of Hainan.
