The Guangdong provincial government plans to build four yacht bases and two international cruise ports in the province by 2020 to attract tourists to the seaside, according to plans released last week.

Two of the yacht bases will be built in Guangzhou, one in Zhuhai and one in Shenzhen, and the cruise ports will be in Guangzhou and Shenzhen. Zhuhai is to be made into a "yacht city".

Plans now call for 29 seaside tourism projects to take place in Guangdong in the coming nine years at a total investment of 110.8 billion yuan ($17.38 billion).

And Hong Kong and Macao are to cooperate more on tourism projects. In the yachting industry, authorities are to work on policies concerning customs clearance, yacht-docking locations, the recognition of yacht licenses and yacht driver's licenses and other issues.

As for the tourism industry, the Guangdong government will work with the Hong Kong and Macao SAR governments to eliminate barriers to tourism.

A 144-hour convenient visa policy will be improved and requirements for foreign tourists traveling from Hong Kong and Macao to Guangdong will be relaxed.

Large enterprises in Hong Kong and Macao will be encouraged to set up wholly owned or joint venture travel agencies in Guangdong.

Then it was a good news to all people who live in Guangdong and also the tourists. The four yachts will be a good entertainment to the people who would love to voyage as per the blogs. It take more time to built such yacht. Tourism is developing nicely here.

That’s wonderful news and I am sure that it will sure attract more cruisers to the town. And by starting international port, international cruises can be attracted too, which will be a great boos to the tourism sector. catalina hotel

A yacht is more difficult to maintain than a normal size boat. Because it is a luxury ship, the owner should be more attentive when he sails it or he maintains it. Also, to replace the damaged boat parts, he should resort only to buy the best parts for offshore yachts.

Some people own a yacht, but not so big like this one. These people like very much to sail offshore, but they should know that it is best to check their boat every time they go offshore. The fiberglass boat repair services are appreciated by everyone who used them, therefore, anyone who need these kind of services should resort to them.

Not all of us have the pleasure to sail on a yacht. But some people have a quality boat with which they sail offshore to catch fish. Further, some of these people have heard about the quality marine hardware from and they equip every time they go offshore with these supplies.

Anyone will like to visit these magnificent places because they are indeed some rare vacation destinations. But such a holiday can be a little expensive for a person who has an average income. On the other hand, the Florida vacation rentals are accessible to anyone who wants to have an unforgettable holiday in Florida state.

Life means many things, but besides taking care of your family, home and working, you should take care of you. Anyone, especially if she is a woman must have a beauty routine.
