February 17 is the last day of the Spring Festival holiday. Hainan tourism administrative departments have strengthened market supervision, pandemic prevention and control work, and will continue to maintain the order of the tourism market. Various tourism products provided by scenic spots, hotels, and other tourism enterprises have greatly enriched the holiday life of the public.

Statistics show that on February 17, the average room occupancy rate of hotels in Hainan Province was 66.28%, the province's accommodations received 393,700 overnight visitors, and A-class tourist attractions received 339,800 visitors.

This year, to curb recent clusters of COVID-19 cases, the government encouraged people to stay put and avoid traveling during the holiday, which helped stimulate the growth of the local tourism industry. In Haikou, locals were able to take advantage of staying close to home and enjoying the nearby attractions while avoiding the travel peaks. A variety of local options like visiting the local zoo to see the cute pandas, hiking in the volcano park, and relaxing at the beach offered the people of Haikou plenty of fun places to go. In Sanya, people preferred local in-depth tours, as well as road trips and short-distance tours. In Danzhou, experiencing the folk culture, enjoying the hot springs, traveling to the century-old fishing village and other local attractions proved popular. Countryside tours including strawberry picking in Nada and Dongcheng Towns, orange picking in Nanfeng Town, and flower viewing in Aishang Rose Garden also attracted large numbers of people.

At the same time, discounts offered by many scenic spots have strongly boosted holiday tourism spending. Chengmai’s Yongqing Temple and Mangrove Bay Wetland Park offered migrant workers free tickets for their first visit. Fushan Coffee Town 5D Cinema discounted tickets for all visitors to only 15 yuan.
