Sanya Vacations

Sanya is China’s southernmost city, located on Hainan Island. It is marketed as the “Chinese Hawaii” thanks to its tropical climate and beautiful beaches, but unintentionally for overdevelopment as well. Beaches and water sports are the principle draw, especially for visitors from Hong Kong or main land China. Nanwan Monkey Island, where tourists ... Read more
can interact with free roaming monkeys, is a popular attraction as well. For those interested in a less touristy experience, Sanya is surrounded by many small towns and remote beaches that very few Chinese tourists (the vast majority) venture to.

Sanya is really emerging as one of the IT tropical resort town within Asia. It is a quick 1.5 hr hop from HKG and it is world's away. Luxury international resorts have been popping up along side of luxury local China brands. Choices are available to fit different budgets, but the feeling of being away from it all is likely very similar in this tropical paradise.

Maybe not the first city you’ll think of when thinking of China, but it is probably a place to go to if you want to have a taste of what is like to be a tourist in a summer Chinese resort for luxurious hotels and wonderful sea side. Palm trees and extended beaches, wonderful sunsets on the Ocean and great seafood. It calls for relax, relax and relax...
