Sanya prepares for tourism peak during 2013 National Day Holiday
The Sanya government said during a conference held on 26th September that the city has launched a series of measures to embrace the tourism peak during the 2013 National Day Holiday.
More than 250 new taxis have been added to the city’s transportation system since the end of August as the city has long been suffering a shortage of taxis during holiday periods. A further 100 are expected to be put into service by the end of October.
By then, the number of taxis in the city will have been increased to 1850, the transportation department of the city said.
Meanwhile, in order to protect tourists’ interests and rights during the upcoming holiday, local tourism departments have also launched measures including crackdowns on illegal business activities, and set a price ceiling for hotel rooms to ensure market order and safety during the period.
As a celebration of the National Day Holiday, a number of cultural and sports activities including an international beach music festival and a wedding festival are also expected to staged during the period.
