Hainan Province received more than 550,000 tourists during this year's May Golden Week holiday, which as a result brought it nearly RMB500 million in income.
According to the Hainan Provincial Tourism Bureau, a considerable part of the tourists drove in their own cars. Hainan Island received as many as 16,000 inbound cars.
Such holiday hotspots as Nanqiang Village Trip in Bo'ao and Tropical Rain Forest in Wuzhi Shan attracted a lot of tourists. In contrast, traditional scenic spots like Nanshan Culture Travel Zone and Tianya Haijiao received fewer visitors this year.
