It was far away from the city, with deep blue sea view. It was clean and good for relax. There is no something very very wonderful, but let you feel comfortable

Biggest Kuan Yin statue I have seen. Beautifully surrounded by the sea. Very big park with different types of Buddhist shrine from all over the world including Tibeten Buddhism.

It is well managed and you will not be choked by burning incence. But be alert with some 'monks' dressed in amber robe who could approach you and start selling some blessed holy objects.

this is one of the things you must see while on the island, it will take most of the day. There are many temples in the grounds and lots of people praying, not just tourists.

If you visit Sanya, this is a must visit! Statue of Buddha taller than Statue of Liberty. I was blown away when I saw the statue of Buddha.

Really is a 5As tourist attraction and the biggest temple i ever being to. Reason for saying so is that everything is Payable... even the joss sticks cost RMB 360 for only 6 sets of 3 joss sticks for only the main 6 major temples in the temple itself excluding those misc small temples/buddhas.

The first thing other than all,the people trying to sell you things and rent scooters and things. That you notice is the size of the statue. It is alot larger than it looks. It,is a bit of a hike across the causeway and when you get there, it is a bit of an assortment and mish mash of things. Lots... More

The 3 face Guanyin statue is pretty awesome; although it looks like 1 face when we first approach it. In front of the statue, there is a restaurant which give a decent view of the sea. But... More

It worth a trip because of the statue....however it feels like a theme park. I would rather stay at my hotel. ( If you are still looking for a hotel I had the luck to stay at Haitang bay, great beaches:) )
