Posted: Jan. 04, 2014  By: SplendidChinaTours.Com


From a sleepy backwater to a modern tourist destination, Hainan Island, off the south coast of China, has undergone a remarkable transformation over the past 15 years. With its tropical climate, people from colder parts of China have long flocked to the island for relaxing holidays, while international tourists are now discovering its attractions.

Hainan's main draw is the city of Sanya, on its southern coast, which boasts many five-star hotels along its white-sand beaches. Its turquoise waters and swaying palm trees make for an idyllic beach retreat.

But there is more to the island than sun and sand. The best known attraction near Sanya is Nanshan Buddhist Cultural Park, which contains a number of sights, including Nanshan temple and the Brahma Bell Garden representing the ancient bell culture of China. However, the park's main draw is the Nanshan South-Sea Kwan-yin Bodhisattva statue, a three-faced sculpture standing more than 350 feet above the sea on a small promontory. The three faces symbolize peace, wisdom and mercy.

Inland from Sanya, the countryside becomes mountainous and heavily forested. The island's original ethnic groups, the Li and Miao, have maintained many aspects of their culture to this day.

About 20 miles north of Sanya, the Yanoda Rainforest Cultural Tourism Zone is a popular tourist attraction, with visitors taking paths past waterfalls and large lotus pools.
