With clear air, a pleasant tropical climate and rustic scenery for a wedding setting, new couples can celebrate their weddings and take photos on the beach, on yachts, on islands, under the water and in hot air balloons.
The city has the most luxury hotels in China, with world-class amenities and services dedicated exclusively to handling weddings for out-of-town visitors and their wedding receptions.
Since 2012, the local government has developed a series of wedding-themed products to promote, in major Chinese cities, its fantastic ambiance for weddings and honeymoons.
The city also has a wealth of professional wedding companies which can offer dress rental and photography services to ensure perfect wedding ceremonies and honeymoons.
Some 300 photography studios are available to serve the burgeoning market.
It’s estimated that the total spending in 2012 relating to wedding photographs, group and individual photographs, as well as honeymoon photographs, exceeded 100 million yuan.
To further boost the city’s development of wedding tourism, wedding tourism alliances have been established to encourage cooperation among photography studios, wedding planners, hotels and scenic spots.
