Xisha Islands are such a beautiful place. A sad thing is that China takes so a long time to realise and develop it. It should allow the businessmen to invest and develop it into a tourist attractions such snorkering, divings, water sports, holidays resorts, etc. It should encourage the tourists to rest here for 3-days or more.
