Not bad place, worth a visit, the ticket price is 100¥, if you have Chinese bank card can use self service machine, maybe works with international cards as well

It takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour to get here by taxi from the center of Sanya. The ticket is a little more expensive than one might expect for China, but not terrible. The beach view was stunning as well as the other views (palms, coast, etc). The place is littered with "fake" historical statues and modern art, but... More

In Chinese, Tianya literally means 'Edge of Heaven', and Haijiao 'Corner of Sea'. This attraction got its fame because it is the most southern part of China. There's a good stretch of beach, and you'll find two big stones marked 'Tianya' and 'Haijiao' respectively. Go on a cool day and have fun!

Quite a cheesy attraction with some stones. Very hot walk along the beach even if you can go on buggy car. Decent beach but no proper shower facilities. Not worth a visit in my opinion. Save the money for dinner

We came to Sanya all because my wife was attracted by the Tianya Haijiao. I, being English educated, had never given any thought to it. It was a sultry day when we were there. We hired a taxi from Ramada Plaza Hotel in the city to there. Then we took a buggy to the spot. As expected, I was therefore... More

Its a chinese saying "end of the earth" to express love to your opposite. Not far from town center and can finish this trip in 1-2 hours unless you want to hang around.

A touristy site with a lot of buses and small food stands. The restrooms need work. We found the site to be interesting, but not a must-see locale. Bring a hat or other sun protection!

For me as an European traveller this is not something that gives me an experience worth remembering. For the Chinese people it seems like heaven and they take a lot of pictures with every stone. In my opinion, this is a tourist trap. At least if you're not from China. Would not recommend anyone to visit, if you ain't a... More
