in China has brought us accidentally - poked at random and went.The tour operator has promised to sea, 3 star hotel, sea view and breakfast.All the standard.By the time we arrived in Sanya about it I knew nothing, except that there is now the rainy season.I'll tell you what really were the rains - once was a downpour and storm, however, the evening even puddles left
The air is hot and humid, the sea, like fresh milk, warm.The island green, fresh, clean, incredibly beautiful nature, virtually untouched.
first discovery Sanya: Chinese 3-star hotels - it as a Chinese iPhone.Only worse. Chinese generally pay little attention to detail. Air flowing, dirty pool, breakfast can not be there, cleaning is not tenable.Well, at least with sea view not deceived.View wonderful.Free and rather stable wi-fi.
met with hotel guide.What can I say ... well not advise, advise that expensive, poor quality, but where it has profit.Tours sell 2-4 times more expensive than you
in Sanya, tourists are invited to stay in one of the three bays. The nearest airport - Sanyabey, it is still under construction. little infrastructure, a wide shallow deserted beach.In the evenings, the street vendors appear pearls, stones and other souvenirs (black pearl bracelet - 10 yuan, beads - 30), as well as food stalls.Fish, seafood, noodles, all delicious, fresh and inexpensive (two of us overeat and obpivalis beer for 70 - 80 yuan). They look creepy cafes, but the taste of the food is wonderful. poisoning cases were not.
On the beach in the evening put the grills and tables, go mobile karaoke - tipsy Chinese love to sing (it's funny the first few days, then tedious). From beach activities - ATVs.A sort of a resort village with no frills.
Central Bay - Sanya. Infrastructure, Budget diving (700 - 800 yuan per 2 dives), ATVs, jet skis, a lot of people, dirty water and a view of the construction site.Many catering establishments, many shops, shopping centers, beauty salons, etc.Go into the water at the beach, I did not dare - if Sanyabey water swimming jellyfish and crab, the Dadonghai - garbage.
third bay - Hollow, heavenly place. Luxury hotels with developed infrastructure, clean water, jet skis, boat excursions to neighboring islands, deep sea fishing, high-quality (and expensive) diving.Each hotel has its own beach, everything is very clean and beautiful.Local bit, a lot of Russian.But the beach is deep, the water is cold, though, and transparent as a tear.
Everywhere there are Chinese medical centers for all tastes and budgets, massage parlors, tattoo parlors, and more. On average, 2 massage zones gave 200 - 300 yuan.Acupuncture - about 800 yuan session.All the staff speaks in Russian.
By the way, do not think "poshopitsya" in Sanya.Sanya is different from the rest of China. There's nothing to buy except pearls, coral and tea.Clothing or bad quality, or a few times more expensive than in Russia.
If you are in Sanya, do not look for Russian restaurants (although there enough).Use moment, eat fruits and seafood. They are amazing!All very fresh, caught and grown in Sanya, very tasty and inexpensive.This miracle can not get bored.
By bus number 3 or 4, you can get to the park, "End of the World" and the International Center of Buddhism - the route of going through all the bays.
Park "Land of Light» - vast territory with a very beautiful landscape and unique nature, highlight - unusual huge boulders on the beach.30 minutes by bus from Sanyabey.
End of the World - it's here
stone labyrinth for lovers
International Center for Buddhist - huge park withlots of temples and lawns.An hour by bus.
to the same place on the bus does not reach, and bringing in local "black" guides Chinese. They, of course, illegals, but the quality of their trips is much higher than that of the tour operator.And they will find you themselves, do not worry.They often look in hotels in search of tourists.Most fluent in Russian and can give a really interesting information about the island and local customs.
Park "Deer turned my head», dedicated to the god of love and it is located on a hill and offers a stunning view of Sanya.
road to Monkey Island was unusual - funicular took us over a huge floating fishing village, but the monkeys themselves were sluggish from the heat and prefers to hide in the shadows.
And you can really relax in the heart of hot thermal springs: them there are so many, all different.
Also on the island you can visit the zoo, safari, go fishing in the sea, look at an active volcano and see the statue of the Golden Buddha (the world's largest, by the way!).
