    Had a rest in July, the weather was different, the Sun, the rain .... So when closed the beach at Dodunhae, we went on excursions. To Buddhist complex can be reached, it is twice cheaper than Hotel Guide and more convenient, do not plan ahead. ... Here we are, boarded a bus and rode 25. Audio guide we have taken in vain, almost 800 rubles sacrificed for two, 40 Yuan per, filled at 10 ... For the very scant information that gives an audio-guide, it's very expensive, and immediately forgotten. better in advance on the Internet. On foot have to walk a lot, because trains go their own route to the statue of Quan Yin goddess going on foot, and wherever we liked, such as the Temple of Nepal-very nice, not headed for the tank engine .... Because the rain was coming, we passed many temples and is already fast-the ultimate, but we came back and again became a bypass-bypass, so in all places and not visited ... Do not confuse tickets! Entrance to the complex ones tickets 121 Yuan per person, on other type of locomotives emit 30 yuan per person. but they look like .... Personal is very friendly! Ticket we came to the square, then walked out and walk to the statue of the goddess, then back to paravozikam and I must again show tickets and my husband showed input in complex, us not allowed and sent to buy again on the tank engine, I had stress, not yet sorted out with the tickets ... Be careful, because ask not who, but we Chinese don't understand. ... The place is beautiful, well worth a visit!

    Very pretty high and the majestic statue of Quan Yin goddess! But don't take the headphones! Nothing really it not only told Meshal at the neck and the only thing in it is useful is that the card has on it! Also liked the pounding in the Bell. Well, everything else is temples and monastery which are very similar to each other and do not see any sense to examine each!

Where to stay in Sanya

A popular beach resort, Sanya's premier places to stay all crowd as close to the beach as possible. Luxury hotels with abundant grounds, large pools, and fine-dining restaurants can be found on the main beach road, along with a scattered few standard options. Budget-conscious travelers will be relieved to find a good number of small inns and hotels located in the alleys and side streets just back from the main beach road. Take a look around the coastline for a number of clusters of upmarket hotels in more secluded bays, usually occupying large plots by the sea.
