A group of tour operators, airlines, hoteliers from Sanya, China, held a promotional event in the capital to raise awareness about the destination and the new flight linking the two cities.
On the occasion of the launch of China Southern Airlines’ flight between New Delhi and Sanya, a tropical destination in the south of China’s Hainan Island, Sanya Tourism Development Organisation recently held a promotional event in New Delhi. The event was graced by the members of prominent travel trade associations, as well as various travel agents and tour operators from the region.
A delegation comprising 17 individuals, such as representatives from China Southern Airlines Company Limited; InterContinental Sanya Resort; Hilton Sanya Yalong Bay Resort & Spa; Binglanggu Hainan Li & Miao Cultural Heritage Park; Grand Hyatt Sanya Haitang Bay; and Mandarin Oriental, Sanya, were present for the event to give guests a firsthand account of tourism facilities and product offerings. Thomson Zhang, Vice Director, Sanya Tourism Development Commission, Marketing Communication Centre, said, “With this, we’re hoping to build traffic for the newly launched flight route that connects New Delhi to Sanya through China Southern Airlines. Not many Indians are aware of the destination, and we aim to change that. Sanya is a beach destination in Hainan province where tourists come to soak up the sun, sand and sea and disengage from the buzz of the city life.”
With a 20 kilometre-long beach line, the destination is packed with a lot of activities for tourists like golf courses, water sports such as snorkelling and jet-skiing, rainforest hiking to name a few. Its natural scenic beauty is also commendable while the ethnic cultural experience of Sanya is worth a visit. Sanya has 256 hotels, with 46 international brands with as many as 100 hotels on the beach.
