Coastal attractions

Sanya has come a long way from the relaxing beachside town it was just a few years ago. In keeping with fast-paced development, the list of things to do while in Sanya is also quickly expanding. Chinese and foreign tourists are not always satisfied sitting around digging their bare feet into the sand. Sometimes they want to get out there and do something, and Sanya is beginning to accommodate.

No one can rattle off the history of tourism in Sanya better than Tang Sixian, deputy director of the Sanya Tourism Bureau. 'Last year, the Sheraton paid more than 100 million yuan [HK$120.32 million] in taxes,' he says. 'Not many people expected that type of success when the resort first came to Sanya.'

Grand plan unveiled

Just less than 30km away from Sanya city is a strip of land that runs for 22km along the coastline, hemmed in by mountains and surrounded by lush wetlands.

The swathe of tropical forest and beaches is called Haitang Bay and it is the local government's largest and most ambitious project yet.
