Mr. Fan Mu said, as a rising popular family tourist destination, Sanya will see an explosive growth in the number of family tourist arrivals over the next two to three years since the second-child policy released in 2016.

 

Over the past years, Sanya has been speeding up construction of a “boutique international tropical seaside tourism city.” Under the initiative, Sanya set up a dedicated tourist police force to enhance visitor service satisfaction and rolled out plans to facilitate the development of holistic tourism to create a quality tourism environment for visitors.
