China's fourth space launch center at Wenchang in Hainan Province is planning eight launch viewing areas for space fans to observe its maiden launch mission.

The eight observation areas covering 45 hectares in total can receive a maximum of 25,300 people at a time.

The sea-side resort city boasts both mountain and seaside scenery for spectacular space launch views.

As of this Sunday, all hotels in the city have been booked out.

Components of China's new generation of carrier rocket Long March-7 arrived in Wenchang in May for the planned launch before the end of June.

The Long March-7 will transport cargo for China's planned space station and is expected to become the main carrier for space launches.
