Snap-Happy Sanya

Sanya may have been a little late when it came to joining the resort crowd, but China’s answer to Hawaii has certainly made up for lost time. Existing solely to serve the needs of tourists, Sanya is a mix of monotonously kitschy ‘attractions’ and fabulously kitschy fun. ... Read more »

Unashamedly VIP, Sanya sees luxe resorts and stunning beaches crammed into every pocket of the ritzy Yalong Bay, while those with slightly smaller budgets head to the accommodation options at Dadonghai Bay. If you don’t have a good radar for sorting out the cheese from the real McCoy, you’ll probably end up getting lost in a sea of binoculars and poorly applied sunscreen in the tourist Mecca of Sanya Bay, but no one ever said Sanya’s draw card was authenticity.

Sanya's Top 10

10. Number 1 Market A fantastic night market surrounded by the city’s freshest seafood restaurants.

5. Xisha Archipelago Bring the waterproof camera – a huge array of tropical life can be found here.

9. Yalong Bay A great place to avoid the crowds and let your hair down in style.

4. Sanya Nanshan Temple Pay your dues to the Goddess of Mercy.

8. Yanoda Rainforest Cultural Tourism Zone Explore the rainforests and go hiking, but please don’t carve your name in a 1,000-year-old tree!

3. Nanwan Monkey Island Hide your food in a bag rather than your pocket unless you like being groped by monkeys!

7. Betel Nut Ethnic Minorities Park Learn about the myriad cultures that live here, or simply enjoy drinking coffee in its cafés.

2. Dadong Sea This is a great mix of nature and development. There is little English spoken, so brush up on your Chinese.

6. Wuzhizhou Island Snorkelling and diving at its best. Go at less crowded times if you want to see more than just other tourists under water.

1. Perfume Bay Pack a picnic and get relaxing – you won’t see anyone else for miles.
