Travel guide to Sanya, Info for China vacations – The Beach

If you are looking for a beautiful beach in China,Sanya (A good place for your China vacations) is your best choice. It is the only province located in the tropic area in China. A lot of Chinese couples choose Sanya for their honeymood.

Sanya (A good place for your China vacations) has 3 districts: Sanyawan,Yalongwan and Dadonghai. They all have very beautiful beaches.

Get in
Sanya’s (A good place for your China vacations) airport is named Fenghuang airport. It is 14 km from the downtown of Sanya. It costs 20-30 rmb to get a taxi to the downtown.(50-60 rmb to Yalongwan, 25-30 rmb to Dadonghai)

The taxi
If you need a taxi in Sanya, you will have 50% chance to get an unlicensed taxi(the drivers are not hired by the taxi companies,they work for themselves). Don’t worry, it is safe to take an unlicensed taxi. The only disadvantage is that the driver may overcharge you. The unlicensed taxicabs look the same as the licensed taxicabs and you will not be able to tell the differences. To avoid being overcharged by the driver, you need to negotiate with the driver about the price first. Usually it costs 25-30 rmb from the downtown to Yalongwan, 5 rmb from the downtown to Sanyawan, 8-10 rmb from the downtown to Dadonghai. Another good choice is to pay the taxicab driver 200 rmb for one day. The driver will take you to the places you want for a whole day.

The tourist bus in Sanya (A good place for your China vacations)
I will recommend the tourist bus of Sanya. The bus is pretty good and its route is Yalongwan-Dadonghai-Sanyawan-Xidao-Tianyahaijiao. The earliset bus leaves Yalongwan at 7:15 am. You can call this number for details: 0898-88245067.

The city bus
I went to sanya once and the city bus is not a good choice for the tourists. You will need spend 30 or 40 minutes waiting for the bus at the bus station and it is not easy to find a bus to the place you want.

Wuzhizhou island
It is the most famous place in Sanya and hotels here is expensive. This is the official website for the Wuzhizhou island: . You can stay here for one or two days and enjoy the beauty of this sea island if you like. 🙂

Tianyahaijiao is the meaning of “end of the world” in Chinese. There are some big rocks in the beach and the ancient Chinese people believe that this is the end of the whole continent. You can take the tourist bus here and it only costs 5 rmb.

Sea food here
I went to 2 restuarants for sea food last time. One is called Binhaiyucun and the other is Chunyuanhaixianguangchang. The Binhaiyucun is the place for the taxi drivers to earn rebates if they take you here. Don’t visit this place. It’s awful. The Chunyuanhaixianguangchang is a good place for the tourists. The price is reasonable and lots of tourist recommend it in the internet. By the way, there is an impostor named Chunyuanhaixiandapaidang. The name is very similar.
