Although this park is very touristy, I found it delightful and interesting! The Li people are very resourceful and the craft/handiwork is both amazing and beautiful. The baby pineapples should not be missed, a very refreshing delight in an overcast, yet warm day!

I actually felt there was nothing to do in Sanya City, but this was recommendable. However, please arrange a taxi, because it is sooo far away from the city center.

It was an educational trip - a shore excursion that we chose and enjoyed. Our tour guide explained in English but paled in comparison to the local village guide that spoke in Mandarin. If you can, follow the local guide. The highlight really is to see the living old grannies who weaves. My daughter couldn't resist and bought a beautiful... More

Supposed to showcase the minority tribes of hainan. Fairly decent museum and sample housing of the tribes. Music performance and the cultural shoe at extra fees. They will extol the benefits of silver and bring to their shop for sales. Same for the Chinese medicated wine.

Educational and full with history of the Li minorities. Will take approximately 3 hours. Stroller is not required as there are buggies at appointed areas bringing you around to the 3 stops.

The Chinese guide just talked and talked all the time. We didn't understand a word and we really felt terrorized by all the noise he and others made and all the pressure they put on us to buy all sorts of pseudo-medical nonsense. It has nothing to do with what undoubtedly was once a beautiful and interesting culture. The performance... More

Ok so,it is commercial but do,you really expect to find a original village in this tourist zone. We have visited several ancient villages in china some genuine but most to be honest have been built or rebuilt for us tourists. Binlang is on the site of a old Li village but its a mixture of some original huts and new/old... More
