We visiting in July (low season), but the crowds were large. Definitely worth visiting, ensure you allow at least 2 hours to walk around. The tip when traveling to China is to ensure you have local currency before you arrive, it is difficult to obtain...More

1. Beautiful Kuan Im Pouw Sat 2. Believe or not, my friend (he had stroke) can walk faster after visited this temple. 3. Believe or not, 108m Guan Yin statue built for the purpose to prevent typhon.

This statue was erected to stop the bay from receiving lashings from vicious typhoons. The locals covet this statue. Don't forget deer park if you're in a romantic mood, or is it called lovers somethingorother..... Bring a lock!

I am certain that Guanyin herself would be disappointed in this monument, as it is not a site dedicated to worship as it is a site dedicated to capitalism. You enter the massive, newly-built complex with hordes of other tourists, passing by signs advertising how...More

Impressive place with breathtaking views. I've never seen these kind of temple before. It worth it to come here to those who are interested in Buddha

If you're staying in the area, this place is an absolute must, even for non-buddhists. True, everything is recent - no ancient temples - but the gardens are so beautifully landscaped and one cannot fail to be moved by the hordes of believers who flock...More

This is an interesting place to visit if you are spending some time in Sanya, but it is a bit of a let down. The Nanshan Temple is just so-so, but the Big Buddha is what makes this tourist attraction well worth it. High ticket...More

Nothing here is older than 10 years, so this is not authentic for anything. The large crowds can be annoying, especially the ones with the tour guides screaming into low quality speakers. The line to climb Kwan Yin was insane (and expensive), so we skipped...More

I hd many expectations about this place and I took a long way bus to arrive here. The entry fee was very expensive for a temple (145 CNY) and inside there I felt in a big business place. The photo is nice, the place is...More

An option is the local municipal bus. Bus # 25 starts from Yalong Bay and ends at Nanshan temple. The ride is about 2.5 hours one way though. Check with hotel concierge about the nearest bus stop.
