China to start allowing tourists to visit the Paracel Islands

  • Published by Vedat

China will this month start allowing tourists to visit the Paracel Islands, one of a group of disputed islets and reefs in the South China Sea.

A cruise ship that can accommodate 1,965 passengers is ready for sailing to the Paracels, known in Chinese as Xisha.

There is only one hotel with 56 rooms on the two-sq-km Woody Island, the largest island in the Paracels.

Last year, China approved the formal establishment of a military garrison in Sansha city, which is located on Woody Island. The city administers the mostly uninhabited islands in the South China Sea which China claims.
