I don't like parks, but this place was good. The statue is very great. Remember that if you have no car you eed to leave this place about 16-30.

We took the highspeed railway to Sanya from Haikou and the ride is around 2 hours. The ride is very comfortable and the train is clean .You can pick 1st class or 2nd class compartment but it doesn't make much a difference except that the 1st class compartment comes with power which I used it to charge my phone.

It's actually a Chinese temple with massive building developments, a place worthy to visit if you have no problem with Buddhism. I arrived there in 9A.M., it was quite a long queue in front of the ticket office. I was surprised to such a long queue as was told by my Korean friends who worked at Sanya that September is... More

This is a great way to spend the morning or afternoon. Lots to see and do. The little train will take you round for 30CNY. It's a little disappointing that after you pay the entrance fee, you have to pay again for lots of other things - extra fee to go up to the feet of the buddha etc -... More

Could have spent a whole day there. 7km all round to walk but we opted for the trains that stop at each point. It was a very hot day and lots of tourists. Amazing statue of Kuan Yin Buddha and beautiful garden settings.

I was recommended to visit this place and decided to take a bus with three other colleagues. Being a tourist, I enjoyed every miles I passed by keeping my eyes in focus to the local way of life. I made the traffic, farming areas, traditional market and many other things I saw on the way to the temple as valuable... More

Nanshan cultural area is a beautifully designed and executed nature area, with gorgeous temples and Chinese buildings to look at, and lots of little paths to walk on. This does not however merit the (by Chinese standards) extortionate 150 kuai entrance fee. The Buddha statue is marvellous, and the Nanshan Temple on a hill is really something to see! A... More

This is a must to see. Amazing. But just the Buddah. Last stop of the turist trolley. A little bit expensive, 150RMB por person plus 30 for the trolley.
