Hainan will offer the Turkish version of All Inclusive for Russians
Starting next year, a number of hotels on the Chinese island of Hainan will offer All Inclusive catering system, which is as close as possible to the Turkish version. This was announced by Van Dong Chin, the president of the board of directors of the international tourism service in Sanya.
Hainan Island attracts more and more Russian tourists every year. Last year, the island hosted more than 200 thousand Russians. “Russia is an important source market for Hainan Island, it amounts to about 30% of the total incoming flow. And we want to develop this market further. We plan to double the tourist flow from Russia already next year,” said Mr. Vang Dong Chin at a press conference yesterday in Hainan.
The island plans to develop an all-inclusive food system in resort hotels. The official recalled that no more than 5 hotels on the island are currently working on this system. Now, so-called Asian version of this type of catering system is used there, which offers a much more poor range of services than in its Turkish version.
According to Mr. Vang Dong Chin, it is planned that firstly this type of catering system will be offered in 4-5* hotels, and then it will be extended among 3* hotels.
As for the cost, the official assured that there will be no noticeable rise in price in connection with the implementation of All Inclusive system. The expert recalled that today Hainan is the most accessible winter beach destination for Russians. So, a 6 days tour for two persons can be bought for 50 thousand Rubles (703 Euros).
