Ocean Flower Island

There are also luxury hotels, residential villas, high-end shopping malls, and restaurants. The island is being developed as a high-end tourism and residential destination, with a focus on attracting wealthy Chinese tourists and expatriates.

The construction of the island began in 2013 and is expected to be completed in 2022. It involves reclaiming land from the sea and building up the islands using sand and rocks. The project has faced some criticism for the impact on the local environment and marine life, as well as concerns about the sustainability of such large-scale development.

Despite these concerns, the Ocean Flower Island has become a popular destination for tourists and investors. It is viewed as a symbol of China’s growing economic and technological power, and its ability to undertake large-scale projects like this.

The goal is to welcome 5.5 million visitors in its first year of operation, with 200,000 arriving for the country’s national day.
