I'm travelling to Sanya in July and I i want to visit some other city that would be interesting to see and quite close to Sanya. I'm on budget, so a definite no to star cruises to Vietnam. Hong Kong would be perfect, but I have no clue how to get there. Any suggestions?
We are off to Hainan in about 6 weeks and we have 5 nights/days in Yalong Bay/Sanya area. We are not particularly beachy people - well not for 5 days, so will be looking for some excursions.
The hot pools sound nice for one day and another will be looking around the shops I suspect, but I have also read that there is a high speed train to Haikou, do you think it would be safe (eg. have enough time) to do a day trip?
Also is there any shows/theatres shoowing traditional Chinese performances in Sayna?
Thanks for any hep you can provide.
Later thisc year we are planning our holiday in Haikou and the Sheraton hotel seems an attractice location.
However we would like to know if the hotel is located rather isolated.
Is it within walking distance from shops/restaurants so it is possible to go to local restaurants as we do not want to eat every evening in the hotel.
This summer my friends & I decided to go to China. We are going to stay in Haikou for a few days.
Can you recommend us some free entry clubs or bars with not many foreigners. Are there any streets with more than 2 clubs?
Moreover,I`dlike to ask how can we get to Haikou from Guangzhou?
Is there any night market in Haikou and Sanya for cheap shopping? Safe?
Dear Haikou VT,
i am embarking on a late March city-hopping trip (25 March to 26 March) to Shijiazhuang, south of Beijing, from Haikou via Sanya. May i know what to wear in Shijiazhuang and Sanya and how much it costs to travel from Haifu Road, Haikou to Haikou East Railway Station for the bullet train ride to Sanya?
Is it Spring season in the south of Beijing now as there is no snow there at this time of the year?
I am moving to Sanya Bay, Hainan, China in about a month. I have been looking for information about traveling to the island. For example, what sites to see, where to stay, where to eat, and where to travel. However, it seems difficult to find out a lot about the island. Could anyone help me find out where English speakers get most of their information about Hainan? References and wed sites would be a huge help.
Anyone knows where is a good place to go view coral reefs?
(never done this before, also...can't swim)
Will be living in Yalong area, and the pictures of the clear underwater with fishes and corals look stunning!
Going with my bf to Yalong Bay and reserved Resort Golden Palm this Easter. However, on checking the pictures, the rooms seem old and ther'es exactly 1 pool. Does anyone know anything about this hotel and if it was good? (does it even have a bathtub?) Or how about the food or eating in nearby places?
1. single pool will be crowded with kids family etc.
2. room seems old....
3. prefer a bathtub
Looking to reconnect and rejuvenate again as couple, and prefer a warm room ;)
Budget 500-600 RMB per night.
Is there a supermarket near the cactus resort in yalong bay to buy food/drinks etc also is there any
local restaurants to eat in rather than hotels
Hello forum folks!
I'll be heading to Hainan in late March, but I'm not so much interested in the beaches as the forests and farms. I would like to visit the Jianfengling National Forest Park, but it seems no public buses go there. Does anyone know how I can visit the place? I will be travelling alone on a budget, so I don't want to hire a driver to take me around.
Perhaps there is a good reasonably priced day trip offered by a travel company? Any recommendations? Or do you think it's not worth visiting?
Many thanks in advance!

I going to travel to Sanya next month for conference at Wanning, I just wonder is there any good hotel at Shimei bay that anyone can recommend? I know there's a le meridien hotel at shimei bay but it is too expensive. As i not there for relaxing holiday, so there's no point for me to pay high price and not be able to enjoy. anyone know some budget hotels around the shimei bay area?
Is te taxi service expensive from Xinglong to Le Meridien hotel?
Thank you very much for your help. Any advises are welcomed.
I'm considering an option of travelling to Hainan (Sanya) alone. Thus, a number of questions appears:
1 Is it safe, eg to walk around in the evening for a young lady in Sanya and Dadunhai(sorry for incorrect spelling).
2 are credit cards accepted there? Or shall I take cash with me?
3 Language. Do Chinese speak English? Russian?
4 How's the weather at the moment and water (sea) temperature?
Thanx in advance for replies!
Hi I will go to Sanya next week. I have interest rental motobike. can you help me?
Im am going to Hainan End of October for a few days to relax at the beach.
I heard that the Shimei Bay is very nice and not so much touristic.
Can't find any hotels on the internet which are on the beach. Only the huge Méridien. Doesn't need to bee that fancy for me.
Thanks for tipps for places to stay!
We intend to spend one week with my kids in Sanya, is the beach good for surfing? We know the weather is fine but what else we can do apart from bathing ourselves in the sunshine?
