A visit to Sanya is a trip of a lifetime where you can explore the tropical forest, learn about the culture and customs of the local ethnic groups, and relax on the white sandy beach. There is so much to explore and therefore we have put together the perfect 6-day Sanya itinerary. This tour will include 2 full-day guided tours to see the highlights of Sanya, and two free days on the beaches.
This is a private tour, that can be tailor-made to suit you, your time, and interest.
On arrival at Sanya Phoenix International Airport (SYX) or Sanya train station, our guide and driver will meet you there and transfer you to your hotel located next to the beach. Rest of the day is free.
One day tour to Nanshan Cultural Tourism Zone. It is a huge park approximately 27 hectares (67 acres) in size and contains several tourist attractions. These include the Hainan Culture Park, Felicity and Longevity Park, and Buddhist Culture Park. The highlight is the 108-meter statue of "Guanyin of the South Sea" - this statue has three aspects; one side faces inland and the other two face the South China Sea, representing blessing and protection by Guanyin of China and the world.
Nanshan’s buildings are new but impressive, built in the style of the Tang dynasty (618-907). Lunch will be hand-made vegetarian dishes.
Transfer back to the hotel after the tour and the rest of the day is free.
One day tour to Binglanggu Li and Miao Cultural Heritage Park and Yanoda Rainforest Cultural Tourism Zone. In the morning, you will visit the Binglanggu Li and Miao Cultural Heritage Park. The park serves as both an entertainment facility for tourists and one of the most important institutions for safeguarding the Li and Miao minority heritage. Both the Li and Miao people are officially recognized minority groups in China. The Li people are one of the oldest ethnic groups that have settled in Hainan some 3,000 years ago. Don’t miss the live cultural show which showcases the traditional cultural activities of the Li and Miao culture. Two on-site museums display traditional Li and Miao clothing, arts and crafts.
In the afternoon, there is a visit to Yanoda Rainforest Cultural Tourism Zone. The rainforest is part of Yanoda Park that consists of several boardwalks which take you through the dense forest. You can walk up the small mountain to enjoy views of the ocean and then take the 680-meter zip-line soaring above the treetops.
