To facilitate public transportation to the Haitang Bay Duty-free Shopping Center, which is set to open at the end of August, the Sanya government is planning to open 2 new bus routes running from downtown to the Haitang Bay area.

The 2 new buses – No. 34 and No.35 – will be operated by large travel express buses to depart from Lv Hai Tian Yuan in Sanya Bay and Sanya Railway Station, respectively.

Currently, 30 buses have been purchased by the local government and will soon be put into service to provide a more convenient stay for tourists.

The Haitang Bay Duty-free Shopping Center, which started construction in June 2012, consists of two phases. The first phase, mainly for duty-free shopping, is set to open in August 2014.
