Sanya to promote integration of tourism and healthcare
On June 12th, 2020, a promotional conference for Sanya healthcare tourism products was held at the Shanhaitian Resort Sanya, Autograph Collection. The event was jointly hosted by the Sanya Tourism, Culture, Radio, Television and Sports Bureau, and the Sanya Municipal Health Commission.
Attendees at the event included representative delegates from the Sanya Tourism, Culture, Radio, Television and Sports Bureau, the Sanya Municipal Health Commission, the Sanya TCM Healthcare Tourism Association, local travel agencies, and healthcare institutions.
The event featured a promotional video showcasing the city’s rich healthcare tourism offerings to guests. Five major local healthcare tourism enterprises and institutions spent a few minutes each detailing their signature healthcare tourism products and packages. Those enterprises were Haitang Bay Shang Gong Gu Valley, International Friendship TCM Sanatorium, Yalong Bay Life Spring Health Management Center, Sanya Ocean Sonic Banling Hotspring Resort, and Earthly Paradise Bird Nest Resort.
Early this month, the Chinese government released a master plan for the construction of the Hainan free trade port. Under the plan, the Hainan free trade port will promote in-depth integration of tourism with culture and sports, medical care, elderly care, health, and other sectors.
Sanya tourism authorities have been working to develop a number of healthcare tourism products, advocating deeper integration of tourism and the healthcare industry, which is part of developments of Hainan Free Trade Port.
Sanya has many natural resources essential to the development of healthcare tourism, including clean air, clean waters, white beaches, mineral hot springs, stunning mountains, and lush rainforests.
Sanya will tap its unique and rich healthcare tourism resources, improving urban infrastructure and the quality of services, in order to ensure that healthcare tourism becomes a major part of boosting the city’s tourism industry.
