Yalong Bay is slated to be the jewel of Hainan – a region earmarked by China’s government to morph into the world’s preeminent free-trade port.”

In addition to its robust economic positioning, Hainan boasts plush resorts, pristine beaches, and top-tier medical facilities, making it a haven for luxury aficionados. “Considering Hainan’s trajectory towards becoming a global luxury retail titan, DFS Yalong Bay is poised to be our crowning achievement, enriching our worldwide portfolio,” Vuchot added enthusiastically.
