If you are tired of the cold winter, come to Hainan for some warm sunshine. Ask for more beautiful scenery? Then never forget that Asian Dragon Bay (Yalong Bay) boasts unparalleled beauty. The 7.5-kilometer long, crescent-shaped bay with an area of 18.6 square kilometers is one of the famous scenic spots in Hainan Province.
Asian Dragon Bay is situated in the southernmost part of Hainan Province, 25 kilometers (about 15.5 miles) away from the tropical seaside tourist city, Sanya. With the average temperature a pleasant 25.5C all year-round, it tends to be attractive for surfing and swimming lovers, while in winter, it is appealing for all people who are afraid of the cold weather at other places. Not to mention the scenery is amazing, with endless rolling hills, serene gulfs, clear blue sea and silvery sand beaches--three times as long as any in Hawaii. Home to several well-preserved coral reefs with tropical fish of varied kinds, colors and shapes, the ocean here is crystal clear, allowing visitors to view underwater sights up to 10 meters (33 feet) deep from the surface. For people who pursue the clear water in their memory, Asian Dragon Bay is among the list of ideal places to accomplish their dreams.
As for the noticeable building there, Totem Pole of 27 meters (about 88.6 feet) stands in the centre of Asian Dragon Bay square, on which the God of Sun, and Gods of Wind, Rain, and Thunder as well as those legendary animals such as Dragon, Phoenix, Kylin and Fish are engraved. The design of this square embodies the Chinese civilization of 5,000 years and has received recognition in winning the Luban Prize - awarded to the top level design of architecture in China. Standing under the building, you’ll understand why there is a need to set such a award.
Thanks to the unbeatable environment, Asian Dragon Bay Resort was authorized by the State Council in 1992. The unique state-level tourist resort is characterized by its tropical ambiance - the resort holds seaside parks, deluxe villas, conference centers, top-end hotels, golf-courses and so on. In recent years, with the perfection of facilities, thousands of travelers are attracted by its unique charm to swarm to this ideal place for vacation. And it is the first choice for people who conduct conferences and matches, including the New Silk Road Model Look China representing the top level model contests in China.
All in all, Asian Dragon Bay boasts the five essential elements of modern tourism: sea, sands, sunshine, lush green plants and fresh air. In 1992, the Secretary-General of the World Tourism Organization once marked that this bay embraces the unique and unparalleled natural settings, sands, crystal sea water, endless seashore, unspoiled hills and pristine vegetation, making it a paradise for holiday travelers. If you are missing the warm sunshine, just stop imagining and buy your ticket to Asian Dragon Bay. After all, imagination never rewards you with real pleasure rather than the very moment.
