In order to avoid future tragedies such as what happened in Hong Kong during the long holidays, governmental departments in Sanya have intensified inspections on night cruises.

During the week-long holiday period the number of tourists taking part in the Sanya Bay sightseeing tours increased dramatically. Law enforcement officers have since inspected 46 cruises and found 5 overloaded and 3 which failed to adhere to government regulations.

To offer a safer environment, all crewmembers are required to enhance their awareness of safety measures and strictly obey the night tour rules. Any activity violating the rules will result in suspension.
