"Sanya, Hainan" Top 5 Page for this destination Hainan Sheng by schwein

Hainan Sheng Travel Guide: 246 reviews and 640 photos

Sanya is the most southern point of China, on the lower tip of Hainan island. The climate is tropical, and the Sanya area offers over 30km of decent beachfront.

Previously off-limits to foreigners, it's just starting to emerge as a tourist destination. The stigma attached to it's being where disgraced governmental officials were sent as punishment has been replaced with the slogan "Come to the Hawaii of China." Construction is rampant, with new hotels and resorts opening monthly.

Not many people speak English here at all, apart from the few people in each hotel lobby. There are quite a few Russian tourists about, in-country tourists from other parts of China, as well as bussloads of Koreans there on package tours.
