Hainan's round-the-island tourist highway is expected to completely open on Dec 31, according to the Hainan Provincial Department of Commerce.
To boost tourism, the scenic highway around the tropical island will link existing roads in 12 coastal cities and counties, such as Haikou, Qionghai, Wanning, Sanya, and Yangpu Economic Development Zone, and pass through cliffs, wetlands, windmills, coconut groves, estuaries, countryside and other characteristic landscapes. The total length of the main line is 988.2 kilometers. Along the route, 40 leisure stations are planned to show local natural and cultural features.
The construction of the round-the-island tourist road officially started in July 2021, and the construction was carried out smoothly according to the department.
