Launch of car­rier rocket to boost tourism

China Daily (USA) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

Wen­chang in Hainan prov­ince will see an in­crease in vis­i­tors as the launch of the Long March 5 car­rier rocket, sched­uled for early Novem­ber, draws near.

The Wen­chang Satel­lite Launch Cen­ter is the fourth of its kind in the coun­try.

To en­sure that vis­i­tors en­joy their ex­pe­ri­ence of wit­ness­ing the launch of the car­rier rocket, the sec­ond of its kind at the launch cen­ter, lo­cal author­i­ties have pre­pared seven ob­ser­va­tion ar­eas which can ac­com­mo­date more than 25,000 spec­ta­tors, ac­cord­ing to a lo­cal govern­ment of­fi­cial.

“We have also de­signed two routes for tourist groups and six routes for peo­ple who will drive by them­selves around Wen­chang, where tourism has peaked since the maiden launch of the Long March 7 car­rier rocket in June,” the of­fi­cial said.
