Sanya is really emerging as one of the IT tropical resort town within Asia. It is a quick 1.5 hr hop from HKG and it is world's away. Luxury international resorts have been popping up along side of luxury local China brands. Choices are available to fit different budgets, but the feeling of being away from it all is likely very similar in this tropical paradise.

Maybe not the first city you’ll think of when thinking of China, but it is probably a place to go to if you want to have a taste of what is like to be a tourist in a summer Chinese resort for luxurious hotels and wonderful sea side. Palm trees and extended beaches, wonderful sunsets on the Ocean and great seafood. It calls for relax, relax and relax...
