Qunar, China’s leading mobile and online travel platform, recently visited Saipan for a weeklong video shoot to introduce travel tips, preferred attractions, and local culture.
The website publishes five times each week to travel lovers and receives 83 million-plus views each month. The videos about and photos of Saipan will be released in late December 2015.
“The number of independent Chinese travelers continues to rise, and many of them book their travel online or have found travel tips about the CNMI on Mafengwo, Qunar, Ctrip and other booking websites,” said Marianas Visitors Authority marketing manager Bruce Bateman. “They are seeking authentic local experiences and want quality time enjoying our beautiful beaches. Many of our previous Chinese visitors have also provided beautiful pictures and useful information online to share with other travel lovers.”
The MVA helped coordinate the media FAM, which included tours of historic and scenic sites in Marpi and along Beach Road. Other activities included snorkeling at the Grotto, a discovery flight, skydiving, a submarine tour, a Let’s Go Tour UTV tour, trolling, golf at Laolao Bay Golf Resort, and a driving tour. Eateries visited were Isla Cafe, Tony Roma’s, and Fiesta Resort & Spa’s cultural dinner show. (MVA)
