Sanya, located on the "edge of heaven and in a corner of the sea" in South China's Hainan province, is one of most popular tourist destinations in China, and in 2020, the beautiful and romantic city will also serve as a sports venue.

From Nov 28 to Dec 6, the sixth Asian Beach Games will be held in the coastal city. It will be the first time that the province hosts a continental-level sports event.

On Thursday, the organizing committee of the sixth Asian Beach Games introduced the details and preparation works to media. The committee is pushing forward the preparation for the Asian Beach Games, including personnel and volunteers' recruitment, mascot release, facilities and infrastructure construction, marketing and publicity.

"The Asian Beach Games' concept perfectly matches the city's image. Sanya not only has natural conditions and facilities to hold the games, but also has the corresponding cultures and emotional identity," Ye Kaizhong, vice-secretary of the organizing committee, said.

He added that the 2020 Asian Beach Games will not merely be about sports, but an integration of sports, culture and tourism, so Sanya will do everything possible to be a responsible host.
