Ticket prices for flights to Sanya during the 2014 National Day holiday have been soaring since mid-September.

This is in sharp contrast to the ticket prices for flights departing during the holiday, which have seen a sharp decline for flights out before October 1st.

Figures released show that the ticket prices for flights from cities such as Beijing to Sanya on October 1st have reached as high as RMB 2,057, and the ticket prices for flights departing Sanya during the holiday are offering discounts of up to 80%.

According to reports, Sanya is still among the list of the top 10 destinations in the country for the 2014 National Day Holiday.

Experts from the Sanya tourism industry have said tourists may get cheaper air ticket prices if they choose flights arriving in Sanya after October 4th.
