Sanya is the Southernmost city on Hainan Island in Southeast China, with sandy beaches, tropical rainforests, botanical gardens and ancient temples, Sanya has a lot to offer. Often described as the ‘Hawaii of China’, Sanya is China’s only tropical resort city with both picturesque coastline and bustling city to explore, meaning you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds during your holiday. Walk beneath the palm trees along Sanya’s famous shoreline or leave the beaches behind and take to one of the area’s lush golf courses, head for the stunning natural jungle or delve into thousands of years worth of culture.
