China’s Hainan island has released plans to give tourists access to Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter in parts of two cities.
A partial lifting of the county’s “Great Firewall” is part of an attempt to make the southern island a free trade zone and tourist hub.
It’s unclear whether locals would be able to access the otherwise-blocked sites.
The local government’s plan is no longer available online.
