Sanya, Forever Tropical - My Family Travels

Sanya City is located at the southern most tip of Hainan Island and to the east of Vietnam. Sanya City is the second largest city on Hainan Island covering an area of 1.919 sq.m with a population of 481,200 and having 19 bays and over 40 inlets lying along a 209 kilometers coast line.

Hainan is often called the “Hawaii of the East”. In the distant past, the Chinese considered Hainan to be the place where the civilized world officially ended and a place fit only for convicts. Today Hainan is visited by many foreign and Chinese tourists. It is China’s idyllic island paradise! 

Sanya has many airlines & Sea routes based at the Phoenix Airport and Sanya Port respectively. It is only a one hour flight from Hong Kong and Guangzhou, 2.5 hour flight from Shanghai, 3.5 hour flight from Beijing and a 5 hour flight from Japan or Korea.

Most tourists who come to Hainan China skip the commercialized capital of Haikou and make a beeline straight for Sanya China, the seaside city where all the good things about Hainan come together. Sanya is well known for its wonderful sunshine, white sandy beaches, fresh air and clear water all year round.

It is the largest diving destination in the world as well as the most important destination for golf and business meetings in China. Sanya boasts the best air quality in China and ranks second in the world, next to Hawaii. Sanya Hainan has an endless summer with an average temperature of 26°C. It is considered to be the most suitable city for people to live in.

As South China Sea laps the island’s sandy shores, in Sanya Hainan, travelers will find three distinct bays: Yalong Bay, Dadonghai Bay and Sanya Bay.

Yalong Bay offers world-class hotels and resorts; Dadonghai beach area is brimming with local life. Sanya Bay is a relatively undiscovered tropical destination.

Though it’s enticing to spend all your Sanya time sunbathing on the beach, the vicinity offers several interesting places. Sanya is noted for its mountains and hot springs with multi-ethnic culture. Sanya has blue skys, white sandy beachs, azure sea, and some of the most beautiful scenery offered in the world.
