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.

Almost every city has an area or attraction that is well worth visiting. For Sanya, this location gets my vote. I have lived in China for three years and this is the very first time I was given free admission to an attraction because I was a foreigner. Although I presented a USA Passport for my identification, I assume all... More

We went there on our first day of arrival. We took a taxi there, it came up quite expensive. But at the temple it was very nice. Lots of different things to see. Cultural museum, little parks and pagodas. Very nice set up. You can take a train which can take you around the place or you stroll by yourself.... More
