Sanya is romantic. You can see how romantic it is in people’s mind from the data collected online for prior places for honey moon in China, Sanya is among the top three. Meanwhile Sanya along with Yangshuo often serves as the last stop for backpackers who wish to spend the remaining days of their visa in China. The city is renowned for its tropical climate and has emerged as a popular tourist destination, also serving as the training site of the Chinese national beach volleyball team. Sanya is home to small concentrations of Utsul people.

Billed as "China's Hawaii", Sanya has 20km long stretches of beach. As the only tropical city across the coastline, it is definitely booming and packed with a lot of water sports such as snorkeling and jet-skiing, rainforest hiking and many world class resorts. 

With sunshine all year around, temperatures hover around 25*C even in January and 30*C in the summer time. Its islands and beaches are beautiful and the water in Yalong Bay and Dadonghai are clean enough to have a good swim, but you may also want to head to Wuzhizhou Island or further north to visit unspoiled and natural scenery.

The best thing to do in Sanya is relax. But in case you want to leave the pool or the beach, there's a list of the best of the best in Sanya, from a restaurant where you can try local delicacies like ginger-garlic 'Hele' crab to a hot spring spa to a monkey reserve on a tropical island where you can play with friendly macaques. It’s all about relaxing!

Off the beach, lovers usually come to a special place to leave something special to tell their wish for eternal love. the Luhuitou Park is also a noticeable spot. Conforming to its romantic atmosphere, there is a legend about the beautiful park. To people who don’t know the legend, it’s only a park containing a large stone statue above Sanya harbour. However, it’s telling the story of a hunter pursuing a deer to an isolated headland near the sea. When the deer could not escape, it turned to look at the hunter and became a beautiful woman. The hunter could not kill the deer and instead fell in love with her.

People leave a padlock on a chain at the top of the mountain in the hope that their love will last as long as the lock remains. Leave your lock here, and your love will never fade away.

While tourists come in every season, the peak season starts from 1 October to the end of winter, ie, now it’s a great time for a Sanya trip. During the winter, Sanya is a popular escape for Russians who primarily stay at Dadong Hai and Northern Chinese to escape freezing weather. In the Chinese New Year, the city will be flooded with tourists and expect everything to be extremely expensive.
