ON THE DEVELOPMENT AND UTILIZATION OF TOURIST RESOURCES IN HAINAN ISLAND
1987, 7 (2):
For its unique tropical island characteristics,Hainan tourist potential is of special value.Therefore,Hainan Island is the best place in China to develop tropical tourism.The main types of Hainan tourist resources are:1.Tropical scenery,beaches and flora and fauna;2.Activities of famous people of ancient and recent past;3.Preserves of precious and scarce animals and plants;4.Wide variety of delicacies with special tastes.At present,tourism in Hainan is just beginning,with serious limitations such as tour facilities,service availability and transportation.It is not wise to overtax the tourist resources at present.The develpment in Hainan tourism should therefore seriously
follow these principles:1.To emphasize the tropical characteristics and make good use of the available local resources;2.To develop the tourism industry step by step and to control this process in a macro way;3.To carefully combine scenic spots with travelling routes to construct tourist networks;4.To adapt facilities to the requirement of tourism.Proposals are then put forward:to made the first move in Sanya and Haikou with the first step being the construction of swimming facilities at beaches;to enhence the tourist spots along the eastern highway and therefore build up a tourist network in the east coast;to develop selected spots in the middle and western highways to provide
tourists with alternative routes up and down the island to make their journey more interesting;to enforce particular policies so that the tourist resources,such as wondcrful animals and plants,special delicacies,and local handicrafts,will be protected,reproduced and manufctured;to build adequate seaport and airport terminals to meet the urgent needs of tourism.The authors predict that six main tourist districts will be established progressively in Hainan Island.These districts are Haikou (including Qiongshan),Sanya (including Lingshui),Warming (including Qionghai,Tongshi,Qinglan and Danxian).
