WEATHER IN SANYA AND OTHER CITIES OF HAINAN ISLAND- THE DETAILED MAP: http://hainanwel.com/en/hainan-news/1633-meteorological-data.html

01/07/2011 Sanya City has dropped to eighth place in the 2010 China Travel City Rankings

 

After we published our article on December 31, 2010, we received several letters,  alleging that the Sanya City is in the first place among the preferences of foreign tourists, and we incorrectly wrote, that the Sanya City in 2010 was losing its tourist appeal.

Impression that foreign tourists visiting China, the most preferred the Sanya City really could happen, if only read the local press of Hainan Province, but if you read already  press of PRC, that is, read the official Government edition of the PRC, the impression of the actual location of the Hainan Island in the preferences of foreign tourists formed a rather sad.

We give details of voting, which ended only recently - on December 28, 2010 and was officially organized by the China Radio International and  officially supported by the Ministry of Tourism, the vote was conducted on the Internet, with the participation of 31 foreign media in 43 languages around the world. Voting was to determine the most popular destinations for  tourists, participated in the voting for about five million foreigners and voting results - Top-10, defined as follows (in descending order of ranking): Harbin, Hangzhou, Huangshan, Jinan, Kashgar, Lijiang Naxi Autonomous County, Luoyang, Sanya, Suzhou and Xi'an. Moreover, Harbin scored a lot more votes, than the Sanya City, although neither in Harbin, nor in other eight cities in this ranking, is not carried out such an ambitious program of construction of International tourism, as is done in the Sanya City, on the scale of investment in tourism infrastructure, Sanya City -is in the lead among all these cities, by a considerable margin, but it has not helped the Sanya City to get even one of the leaders of this vote, the reason is obvious- is a small number of foreign tourists, due to improper methods of work with foreign tourists and inflated prices for foreign tourists.

Everyone knows the proportion of tourists from which  country is the greatest in Harbin and in Sanya- are a tourists from Russia, and if in Harbin account the wishes of Russian tourists, then in the Sanya is now used the same methods of work with foreign tourists, which was also used ten and five years ago, and if no change in the method of work with foreign tourists, the more the situation for the Sanya City will only get worse, since already in the press of Heilongjiang Province (the administrative center of which is Harbin) has information  about the plan to build on one of the islands in the Amur River, directly opposite of Khabarovsk, a major water recreation center until 2013, especially for Russian tourists, on whose territory will be the beaches, aquapark, discos, restaUrants and shopping malls. Now we collect more material about this and further details will write, but now one thing is clear- if on that island in the Amur River, in Heilongjiang province, is really will built a entertainment center,- it will clearly very sharp decline the number of  Russian tourists to the  Hainan Island.

That is, the Hainan Island has hampered competition not only from outside China, but from another provinces of  China, and in 2011 should be much change in order to work with foreign tourists, among the main measures include:
-Prohibition of overcharging for foreign tourists
-Ban to guides, working with foreign tourists, to take  cash and currency exchange,
-Prohibit all side-income for guides of travel agencies, it is necessary that all tour guides will work exclusively on wages (as they are working now with Chinese tourists), that is necessary to create equal conditions for foreign and Chinese tourists
-Improved service in the hotels of Hainan Island, the introduction of the system "All inclusive" with the tastes of foreign tourists,
-Wide dissemination of information about tourist infrastructure of the Hainan Island at least in English and Russian languages, not only in Chinese,
-Creation of duplicate inscriptions in Russian and English on the tour sites, shops, restaUrants, buses, etc.

We also received several letters, which states that the Hainan Island is a only Chinese resort, which exclusively designed for the Chinese, but we believe the error of this view, since after the December 2009 The Chinese Government has decided to turn the Hainan Island to International Resort, and in 2010  Hainan Island has so many corporate and government investment (and even more will get), that only the Chinese tourists will return these investments, even at a zero return, on only a minimum of 65 years, and corporate investors in Hainan Province of China will not wait so long, they will go for the obvious way - with a lack of tourists -will increase the their prices in tourist infrastructure of  Hainan Island, and this process has already begun in November 2010, when news of flooding scared away foreign and Chinese tourists from visiting the Hainan Island.

Foreign tourists spend in several times more money on leisure in the Hainan Island, than the Chinese tourists and foreign tourists will help much more quickly recoup the costs of the infrastructure of the Hainan Island. So now the only one way to Hainan Island  to become a resort - is to will be an International Resort!

If the number of foreign tourists will continue to decline in 2011, it will cause an even greater prices increases and, accordingly, this will reduce the number of Chinese tourists already, that it is now observed.

Hainan Island could be the Chinese resort until 2010, ie before large investments, and now the Hainan Island has one way - is a way to International Resort!

We are confident, that the Sanya City has the best conditions in 2011 to take first place in the Chinese tourism rankings, if they made the necessary changes and they will be strictly controlled, it is now time for change.

We are confident, that Hainan Island has better opportunity to become the best resort in the world!
