Sanya, a coastal city in the southernmost of China, is witnessing a seasonal influx of tourists during the 2011 CNY holiday. To create a safe and smooth tourism environment, the Sanya government has tightened rules on illegal camping in public places, reports

For the safety of tourists, overnight camping is not allowed in some public places, especially on beaches. Any camping activity violating the rules will be called off or fined, according to the urban management department of Sanya.

"Camping on beaches may have some potential risks since people on the beach are from all walks of life. Besides, there are some dangerous places where swimming is prohibited," said an official with Sanya Environmental Protection Bureau. He also urged people not to organize illegal camping activities in public places and abide by the rules.

On Feb. 4, 2011, Sanya law enforcement officers have seized 1,200 illegal camping activities in Sanya Bay and Dadonghai Beach. Most of them were organized by travel agencies or companies.
