Sanya is a popular travel destination for the upcoming Dragon Boat Festival holiday between June 12 and 14, with the highest number of hotel bookings in China, according to a tourist platform named Hornet's Nest.

Seven hotels such as the Palace Resort Yalong Bay Sanya, the Harman Hotel Sanya, and the Sheraton Sanya Yalong Bay Resort made it into the top 20 highest-demand hotels.

The average ticket price during the festival is around 890 yuan ($139), 49 percent higher than the same period in 2019. In particular, the day before the Dragon Boat Festival holiday (June 11) will see a travel peak.

This year's Dragon Boat Festival falls after the college entrance examination. Many students will do some travelling in order to relax. Their tours often last about five days and they like to focus on culture and sightseeing, as well as cuisine.

Sanya will strengthen its services to create a good tourism environment for the upcoming holiday. For example, the tourism department will work to improve the seafood restaurant industry, clean up false advertising, investigate and punish vicious competitive behavior, as well as strengthening tourism regulations and industry self-discipline.

In addition, Sanya will hold a variety of folk customs activities, such as dragon boat racing, zongzi-making and  fragrant sachet making, so that tourists can experience Dragon Boat Festival customs while on holiday.
