The "Travel the World, Stay in Sanya" international youth exchange program was held from Sept 8 to 10 in Sanya, Hainan province. 20 young participants from countries like the United States, Greece, Tajikistan, South Korea, Morocco, and Cuba attended the event.

During the three-day exchange, the group visited famous Sanya attractions, such as Tianya Haijiao, West Island, Bohou village, Sanya International Duty Free Complex, Sanya Qiangguqing Tourism Area, Yalong Bay Tropical Paradise Forest Park, and Yazhou Bay Science and Technology City.

They experienced Sanya's urban culture, ocean activities, and ethnic Li and Miao customs, while also gaining insights into the city's development prospects as the innovation hub of the Hainan Free Trade Port.

On March 15, Hainan resumed its visa-free entry policy for tourists from 59 countries. Tourists from these countries can enter Hainan visa-free through designated ports and stay for up to 30 days.

The event aimed to promote Sanya's high-level opening-up. A spokesperson from the Sanya tourism board welcomed the group, and went on to invite more young talents to come and start businesses or pursue careers in the city.
