Disputed South China Sea islands to be redecorated as Maldives-style island resort

Published on : Friday, May 27, 2016

sansha-chinaChina aspires to give South China Sea islands a makeover and turn it into profit earning island resorts just like those in the Maldives.



One of the top officials stated that the island resort will be turned into wedding venue to earn additional revenue. This project will ensure the presence of more civilians in the disputed portion of South China Sea. Considering the beauty of the islands, it can be said that the resort would be perfect for a destination wedding.



Xiao Jie, the mayor of Sansha city said, “We will develop some islands and reefs to accommodate a select number of tourists. It will be an orderly and gradual procedure.” Xiao also added that sea plane trips, fishing and driving trips would also be some of the major attractions that would be offered to the tourists. Apart from diving, travellers will be able to try wind surfing as well.



China has been trying to make this specific part of the sea civilian-friendly since 2013, when they began cruise trips for tourists on a trial basis. Through the rich waters of South China Sea, $5 trillion worth trade ships pass every year. Malaysia, Brunei, Taiwan, Vietnam and the Philippines also gain a large amount of wealth every year because of the ship-borne trades.



If the resorts get successful in their endeavour, it would strengthen China’s claim on that part of the sea some more. Also, the new resorts will give the locals more employment opportunities.
