Highly caution not to go to Sanya in summer (june - aug) as it's just too hot for tourist to properly enjoy the trip. Else, get ready your sunblock, hat and umbrella. It's a very big park and fortunately they have trams (RMB35/pax/circuit) to frequently ferry visitors from one attraction to another (ard 10mins waiting time) . There's several temples... More

The area is just huge. The temples is so nicely built. We spent more than half a day here. The access is easily accessible by wheelchair as I had no problem pushing him around the whole place. Only thing is when exiting the place we have to push him up the slope just takes away all your energy. Senior citizen... More

This temple is right on the beach. The grounds are massive so best to take the shuttle bus around and get off and on at various areas. You can spend hours at this place.

Sprawling grounds, beautiful park, impressive statue of Kwan Yin which can be viewed from the lounge of the hotel sharing the same premise. The hotel should be a great spot for retreat, meditation and soul searching. The view from the top of the temple is also beautiful.

This is a 5A scenery spot with the 108 m Kwan Yin status by the sea- very impressive. While some activities can feel rather commercial, you're free to choose. It's a large area with plenty worthy of a visit and good photo spots. Certainly a top spot to see and experience in Sanya

Must see place in Hinan. Divine and special vibe all around the park. Closer you get to Guan Yin Ma higher the energy you will feel.
