Sanya Local Culture

Beach, shallow water and seafood are three themes of experiencing a vacation in Sanya. Located in the southern region of Hainan Island and has a climate similar to summer year round with fully blossoming flowers in a riot of colors. Sanya has long been crowned as the “Hawaii of the East.” Along the nearly 200-kilometer coastal line lie bays such as Yalong Bay, Dadonghai and Sanya Bay. The coconut trees are so lush that they form a green forest. The interlacing east and west islands add more to the vision of the boundless expanse of the blue sea. Boasting the best-preserved coral reefs in China, Wuzhizhou Island has a reputation of being “the best diving base in China.”

Luxurious holiday inns are scattered around Sanya with various newly developed entertaining facilities of high grade. Entertaining activities such as hot spring, spa, salt water fishing on yachts and golf are developing rapidly with increasing popularity among visitors. Such activities as playing with the sands, picking seashells, catching crabs and watching the sunset are reasonably priced. In addition, an increasing number of Chinese and foreign visitors regard Sanya as the best place for wedding photos and honeymoons.

Apart from the three best seaside holiday resorts, there are many places of interest in Sanya. The Buddhist Culture Tourist District in Nanshan Mountain is characterized by its exquisite statues that are eco-friendly and representative of Buddhist culture. Additionally, in the End of the Earth scenic area, you can see statues of historical figures with water surrounding them. Lastly, in the Luhuitou Park on the peak of the mountain, the lifelike statues tell you the beautiful story of the moment a deer turns around.
