Xisha Islands to Open to Tourists this May

China plans to open the Xisha Islands, a cluster of islands and reefs in the South China Sea, to cruise tourists ahead of the upcoming May Day Holiday. Visitors will stay and dine on their crusie ships, but will be able to visit the islands for sightseeing.

While the islands make for beautiful touring, the infrastructure and tourism offerings located on-islands are currently still under development. In addition to building hotels and shoring up water supplies and treatment systems, the ecological systems of the Xisha Islands will be protected to keep the local biodiversity in balance while opening up the area to tourism.

In the meantime, however, a cruise ship that can accommodate 1,965 passengers is ready for sailing to the Xisha Islands and another ship is currently under construction by the Hainan Harbor and Shipping Holdings Company. For more information, click here.
