Interval International has expanded its global resort network with the addition of Jinfeng Yinhua Holiday Hotel, part of the Shengteng Vacation Club. In the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Lijiang City, China, the vacation ownership apartments offer the ideal vantage point from which to explore the history and customs of the Naxi people, who have lived in Yunnan Province for 800 years.
"Lijiang City is one of China’s most popular destinations, renowned not only for its cultural heritage, but also for its stunning surroundings and unique festivals," said Joe Hickman, Interval’s executive director for Asia Pacific. "The hotel’s authentic Naxi architecture – distinguished by sloping tile roofs, gates, and classical courtyards – blends seamlessly with the historic hotels and farms of the Old Town, while offering up-to-the-minute style and amenities."
The People’s Republic of China is one of the original members of “BRICS” (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), the acronym for countries at a similar stage of newly advanced economic development. Interval International has held Shared Ownership Investment Conferences in Beijing, Macau, and Shanghai to educate prospective entrants, lenders, and government officials about shared ownership and resort development opportunities.
