The number of Taiwanese tourists visiting Sanya has been growing at a remarkable pace in the last year thanks to deepened tourism cooperation between Sanya and Taiwan.
The launch of flights between Taiwan and Hainan, operated by Taiwan Far Eastern Air Transport and Trans Asia Airways, also contributed to the growth.

Two more travel agencies in Hainan have recently been approved to offer Taiwan tourism services, and the number of travel agencies in the province approved to offer Taiwan tourism services has therefore now hit 5.
