Getting Around

Taxis offer convenient transport between destinations, however, travelers must negotiate a price before setting off. Flagfall should begin at RMB 5. Sanya's double-decker tourist bus service includes three main lines running from Yalong Bay to Tianyahaijiao, via Sanya City and Nanshan (RMB 4-8). Pedicabs are banned in Sanya, but rogue motorcyclists still operate. Make sure you bargain beforehand and be careful: some motorbikers have been known to speed in order to avoid the authorities. Some travelers choose to rent private cars and most hotels offer a car rental service. Most car rentals require a RMB 5,000 refundable deposit, an ID card, return air ticket and Chinese driving license. Rates are usually based on current gasoline prices. If you do manage to get behind the wheel, take a drive down Binghai Lu (Bīnhǎi Lù, 滨海路), a beautiful 30-minute stretch of sun, sand, and sea. Stop along the way at one of the area's seafood restaurants.

To and from Sanya


Sanya Phoenix Airport lies 20 km (12 mi) from the city center, offering Sanya flights to 23 domestic destinations including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenyang, Wuhan, Qingdao and Shenzhen. International Sanya flights include Singapore, Macau, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, and Tokyo. New arrivals can take a taxi (around RMB 30—make sure to ask the driver to take Yanhai Lu, which follows the beautiful coastline) or a bus to Sanya Bay or Dadonghai (RMB 15). The airport bus's terminus is on Jiefang Yi Lu in the city center.
