Sanya Day Trip
Taking advantage of a business trip to Sanya on Hainan Island, I arrived on the plane at 6:00 a.m. on Sunday morning, and put my luggage away just in time to have a day to wander around. Sanya is a place where Chinese people love to spend their vacations, and it is advertised as the "Hawaii of the East". I didn't have a lot of time, so I just picked two scenic spots for a day trip to Sanya: Tian Tian Hai Jiao (天天海角) and Deer's Head (鹿回頭).
the ends of the earth
The End of the World Plaza
Historic Statue Area
On the left side of the square there is a statue area of historical celebrities, all of whom have a connection with Hainan. For example, Huang Daobao, a native of the Yuan Dynasty, is said to have learned textile techniques in Hainan and later returned to his hometown to develop them, and is considered a pioneer of the textile industry in China.
Probably because of its romantic name and beautiful sea view, many people come to Tianya Haijiao to take wedding photos. The area next to the celebrity statue area is directly planned to be used for wedding and wedding photos.
Along the beach trail, all the way to see the sea view. Sanya is located in Hainan, the beaches here are the rare blue sky, blue water, coconut groves and sandy beaches in China, so Sanya always attracts a lot of tourists from mainland China, and is known as the Hawaii of the East. In the scenic area, there are a lot of special shaped rocks, each with a romantic name.
sun and moonstone
One of the scenic spots, the Sun and Moon Stones are shaped like love hearts. Legend has it that the Li youths and Han women became Yuanyang after they were martyred in love, and then Guanyin turned them into these two stones, which is known as the Love Stones. Close to look closely, the stone is also engraved with the characters of the sun and the moon.
Love Vow Stone Carving

This stone is called the Fairy Stack Stone, so named because of its special suspended shape.

The stone is about seven meters high and was inscribed by Fan Yunti, a magistrate during the reign of Emperor Xuantong, who was said to have been impressed by the grandeur of the stone and its sense of uprightness and integrity.
A Tree at the End of the World
The tree opposite the Southern Heavenly Pillar grows out from under a huge boulder, and is said to be "a tree at the end of the world" that does not bow to fate.
The sky is the limit
As you walk up the hill, you will reach a sea-viewing platform, which is a good place to stand at the highest point to see the sea view, and the platform is also named poetically as "The End of the Sky".
the ends of the earth
When you reach the end of the trail, congratulations, you have finally reached the end of the world. It is only here that you can really see the "End of the World" stone and the "Cape of the Sea" stone. The two stones are next to each other, which is the symbol of this scenic spot. This is the end of the road, and the tour is almost over. If you don't want to continue walking, you can take the battery car back to the entrance.
Museum of Sacred Orders
There is another section of the mountain road before the main gate of the scenic area to get up to Deer Hau Tau Park. You can either walk or pay for a bus to take you to the park, the bus stop is just opposite the sculpture, but after you get off the bus, you still have to walk up the hill by yourself to see the sculpture and the sea view.When you get off the bus, you can turn around and see the city of Sanya. At night, the lights are even more beautiful.
Luk Wui Tau Park
After getting off the bus, you can only walk slowly up the hill. Deer Houtou Park is themed on the love story of the Li ethnic group, and from the main entrance, it is written "Love at first sight, Deer Houtou".
The Luhuitou Peak Park is surrounded by the sea on three sides, so you can see the panoramic view of Sanya and also Fenghuang Island.
Sanya's attractions are all centered around the legend of love, and the business here at Luhuitou Park also celebrates love. Writing a postcard as a souvenir at the cute little Love Post Office is a popular activity.
Where there is love, there is of course a moon goddess, and it seems that his business is quite prosperous.
Surrounded by the sea on three sides, there are cityscapes everywhere.The sea view pavilion at the top of the hill is the best place to see the sea.
The sculpture of the word "love" clearly emphasizes the theme of the park.
