Chinese Travel Group Launches 'One-Code' Duty Free Platform in Hainan

In 2020, Hainan again topped the list of popular travel destinations in the country as part of Golden Week, and "duty-free" became the golden mark for attracting tourists, so the China Travel Group launched the "One-Code" travel services platform and opened a free shuttle bus. Citizens and tourists alike can head straight to the duty-free shops at hotels and airports, embarking on a "one-stop" holiday shopping trip.


From July 1 to September 30, 2020, duty-free shopping in Hainan totaled 8.61 billion yuan, up 227.5% from a year earlier. Two days before the National Day and Mid-Autumn Golden Week, long lines lined up at the Haikou and Sanya duty-free shops, and the popularity of the Hainan duty-free shops continued to grow.


China Tourism Group's YiMatong travel services platform has partnered with many star hotels in Haikou and Sanya to launch 60 free shuttle buses to provide capacity during the holidays. Passengers can take the bus directly to Sanya and Haikou International Duty Free Center. Duty free shops provide a smooth flow of passengers, allowing tourists to travel and shop with confidence.


The free shuttle bus to Sanya International Duty Free Center has 15 routes passing through Holiday Inn Qingshuiwan, Fuhaitang Hotel, Metropark Sanya Bay Hotel, Sanya Marriott Hotel Shanhaitian, Crown Center Hotel, Hampton by Hilton, Holiday Inn Resort Sanya Bay, etc.


The Duty Free Shop in Haikou Riyue Square has 4 free shuttle buses that run through the Yingbin Peninsula, West Coast, East Coast, Mission Hills and other four major hotel areas in Haikou, including the Haikou Marriott Hotel, Shangri-La Hotel, Sheraton Hotel. Hilton Hotel, Ritz. Carlton Hotel and many other upscale resort hotels. The first bus leaves from the hotel at 9:00 three times a day. Passengers can choose the travel time. The last bus departs from the Riyue Square Duty Free Shop at 20:00, leaving plenty of time for passengers to shop.


Each duty-free shuttle bus is reportedly disinfected in accordance with regulations, and armrests, seats, floors and other parts of the passenger compartment that are often exposed to passengers are disinfected and cleaned.
