WA travel industry samples China’s island paradise

September 2, 2013 Photo Gallery No Comments Email Email

A group of Western Australian travel industry representatives recently had the opportunity to experience China’s tropical paradise, Hainan Island.

A long-time favourite for Chinese holidaymakers, Hainan is now being discovered by the rest of the world for its sunshine, year round spring-like weather, resorts and activities like golf, spas, Chinese medicinal therapies and eco-tourism.

China Southern Airlines’ Commercial Manager Perth, Paul Lim, who led the industry famil, said the group was surprised to discover Hainan’s beautiful scenery, weather and resort-style golf courses.

“Hainan is something of an undiscovered gem for travellers outside China because it shares the same latitude as Bali, the Maldives, Fiji, Hawaii, Phuket and Miami and offers absolutely wonderful beachside weather,” Mr Lim said.

“It is also very accessible for Australians flying with China Southern because it is less than an hour on regular daily services from our hub in Guangzhou and we offer direct flights to Guangzhou from Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
