The 2015 ‘Discovery of Sanya’s beautiful Yazhou’ architecture photography contest is to be launched at the end of this month, according to the Sanya Yazhou District authority.
In Yazhou District, Yacheng is a quite popular tourist destination and has been named as the "Famous Historical and Cultural Town of China".
