Just ahead of the Chinese New Year shopping season, the duty-free quota for visitors to South China's island province of Hainan will be raised.
China scrapped the curb on how many times you can buy at the vacation resort island in a year, but total volume of purchases cannot be more than 16,000 yuan or some 2,400 US dollars. Shoppers were previously only allowed to buy twice a year for a maximum of 1,200 dollars per purchase. People can also shop online for these duty-free goods.
