Surrounded by green hills and characterized by multi-featured landscapes

Sanya is the second largest city in Hainan province, and is in the middle of the south part of Hainan island. The city is ringed by continuous and rugged mountains on three sides. These are the Baopo Mountains in the north, the Dahui, Hubao and Gao Mountains (or just Gou Mountain – altitude 393 meters) in the east, and Nanbian Mountain in the south. This expansive mountain topography divides Sanya into many parts, all surrounded by green hills and characterized by multi-featured landscapes of many different styles.

Seen from the sea, the mountains serve as a green protective screen which helps highlight the enchantment of Sanya city, as well as provide scenic overlooks out onto the vast sea, river, bay and city scenes. Facing the South Sea, there are a multitude of bays, each endowed with wonderful scenery. The Dadonghai, Xiaodonghai and Sanya bays in the urban area have the closest connection with the local citizens, while the Eastern and Western Islands serve as a gate facing the South Sea, and tend to add a sense of depth to this vast sea, and a veil of mystery when the sea fog cloaks the mountains. Strolling on the beach, one can often experience the Luhuitou through a light mist, as if the city were exhaling a long sinuous sigh.

Sanya city, backed by its famous mountains and facing the sea, is a garden city full of coconut palms and other verdant splendors. Within the city is the Nanshan Buddhism Cultural Tourism Zone, with its wonderful sculptures of zoological and Buddhist themes, and the Tianyahaijiao Tourism Zone featuring a sculpture cluster of historical figures. In addition, Luhuitou Park contains life-like sculptures in human form that evoke the moving love story of “Luhuitou”. Finally, there is the modern garden plaza which honors the national architect Luban Price. It also features sculpture clusters which help transport the visitor back to more ancient times in their imagination. There really is almost too much in all of these marvelous scenic spots to take in.


When to visit: Sanya is suitable for travel all year round, though the best period is from September to April. China’s National Day Holiday (October 1-7) and Chinese New Year (around February) are the peak seasons when lots of people pour to Sanya for vacation; it is suggested to place tour and hotel bookings in advance.
