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

Admission was RMB 145 for tourists and an additional RMB 30 for the tram ride. Main attraction was the statue of the Guanyin Buddha. Inside the hall of Buddhas, the aura was magnificent.

Hello, Just wondering if anyone knows what transportation options are available to get to Nanshan Temple from Yalong Bay? We are staying at the Sanya Marriott Yalong Bay Hotel.

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.
