Took a cab ride rmb 100 from hotel to Nanshan cultural tourist area. The peak season ticket cost rmb129. This is a place u can spend some 5 hours or so. Many sights but we didn’t take the electric tram ride so it was indeed a lot of walking. One could purchase the tram ticket at additional rmb 30 ish per person. We spent a long time at the longevity valley and 108metres statue of guanyin by the sea. Nice place to come but prepared to walk a lot and also one must try to appreciate from a cultural perspective. …

Stunning view of the Guanyin statue by the beach. One day ain't enough if you do not purchase for the tram ticket. There is a famous vegetarian restaurant too and worth to have a try. A must visit in Sanya.

The Guanyin statue is impressive.However this is a tourist trap and is expensive because you will pay for everything you do .Xidao is a tiny island and relies on tourism.

Nanshan ecological park. Contains the temple, the statue, longetivity valley and many more. Stunning gorgeous breathtaking. Has to be on your to do list. I got the number 25 bus here. But other numbers come also. Cost 121 rmb walking. More if you want golf cart transport. So much to see and do here it took me all day. It does get very busy and it is put in the open so be careful for sunlight.…
