As the Sanyuesan Festival draws near, Guangxi has rolled out a series of preferential policies to attract tourists from neighboring areas, including Guangdong, Fujian, Jiangxi, Hainan, Hunan, Sichuan, Yunnan, Guizhou, Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan.
The Sanyuesan Festival is a traditional Zhuang minority folk festival. It takes place on the 3rd day of the 3nd month of the Chinese lunar calendar, falling on April 7 this year.
From March 25 to April 30, visitors from the aforementioned places will be offered half-price tickets for scenic spots ranked at the A-level or above as long as they present an ID card, a Mainland Travel Permit for Hong Kong and Macao Residents, or a Mainland Travel Permit for Taiwan Residents.
Visitors driving a private vehicle with less than seven seats will be granted a 50 percent discount off highway tolls in Guangxi from April 1 to 8.
Meanwhile, tourist agencies that bring visitors to Guangxi via chartered flights or trains may receive an award of 20,000 yuan ($2,986) per trip. Guangxi airports will exempt airlines from aeronautical service charges if they introduce new flights to the region.
