Representatives from the Frankfurt and Munich tourist offices, the team from Sanya, Hainan, China and over 100 German tourism industry executives participated in the two events, at which German journalist Hilke Maunder shared stories about her two sojourns in Sanya, one in 1988 and the other, thirty years later, in 2018.
The collection of stories, entitled “Amazing Changes in 30 Years”, was targeted at motivating German travel agents interested to know more about the Sanya tourism market.
Maunder mentioned about the changes that she noticed between the two trips, showing several collections of photos she took when she visited Sanya in 1988 and 2018, among them, “Comparison of the Big Four Bay Areas, Then and Now”, “Small Fishing Boats Under Sanya Bridge Are Replaced by Luxury Yachts”, and “Atlantis Sanya Is One of the Only Two Atlantis Hotels in the World”.
Well-known for its pristine beaches, tropical coastal scenery and the cultural charm of Li and Miao ethnic groups who live in the area, Sanya has a visual story to tell. CEO of TUI China Dr. Guido Brettschneider offered a presentation on the tourism offerings of Sanya designed particularly for the German market and shared information about the area in general as well as the available tours.
Zhu Weige, consul and head of Economic and Commercial Section of the Consulate General of People’s Republic of China in Frankfurt am Main, stated in his speech, “China and Germany have long-standing friendly exchanges and the cooperation in the tourism industry has enhanced mutual understanding and trust between the two peoples.
“Frankfurt’s and Sanya’s tourism markets have unlimited potential and a bright outlook.”
