Sanya, our little paradise located on the southern island of Hainan. Sanya is the ideal place to relax with near to perfect weather all year round. With more and more events each year Sanya has become an increasingly popular location for a wide variety of events from weddings to conferences. This year we have already seen Sanyas Second International bloggers exhibition, Sanyas first ever flower exhibition and Chinas Corporative beach games of 2019.
One such event that took place this year making on TV screens around the world is the annual Hainan Island International Film Festival of 2019. This is the second time the event has been held Sanya. Over 3,000 immigrants from Hainan, living in over 28 countries, gathered at the World Congress, held at the Mangrove Tree Resort World Sanya Bay.
“This is my first time on this beautiful island,” said British director and producer Simon West, his films include CON AIR starring Nicholas Cage, "THE GENERAL'S DAUGHTER" starring John Travolta and "LARA CROFT: TOMB RAIDER" starring Angelina Jolie. West is the only live action director ever whose first three 3 films all grossed over $100m at the US box office. “ I heard about here for a long time and wanted to come. Traveling around the world, I am always looking for beautiful places to shoot: this fantastic island will become one of them. So I'm so glad that in the end I got here, this time at the festival, but I’m sure that I’ll be back to make a film! ” an interview with Euronews
Among the guests was the vice president of the French Association, Mr. Feng: “I am very glad that I came here. Today, Hainan, thanks to the efforts of the Chinese government, is developing faster. For a small island, it has become quite famous, so we are looking for opportunities for joint business. ”
The Mangrove Forest Hotel is the largest in Sanya, its management has long been conducting business with an eye on the international perspective: “More and more employees of large international companies come to us, airlines launch more and more flights to Hainan,” says the deputy director of Mangrove Tree Resort World Sanya Bay - Mr. Soo.
“The conditions of entry and exit are facilitated. Now our hotel and beach amenities are fully prepared to receive foreign guests. I hope that in the future more and more international corporations will choose Sanya as a vacation spot! ”
Outdoor activities are a separate big business. Employees of Chinese companies participating in a sports tournament are perceived by many as a rehearsal of the Asian beach games to be held in Sanya in November 2020. It is planned that 4,000 athletes from all over Asia will come to Hainan to take part in a variety of types of competitions - from volleyball to kitesurfing.
An important part of the infrastructure under construction will be the international sports park, including the stadium intended for the closing ceremony of the Asian Beach Games and the town where athletes will live. Some of them will fight around the arched tecball table.
The self-confessed Teqball addict, the former Barcelona star Ronaldinho came to Sanya to popularize this new favorite sport, in which the ball can be hit with any part of the body except the hands.
“I'm just happy to be here and would like to thank everyone for the warm welcome,” said Ronaldinho. “I hope that this sport will soon become Olympic and take a leading position ... It's wonderful!”
