Very crowded at the entrance. In the park itself it was ok due to its size; its huge and not walkable in one day so I suggest to take the shuttletanks/train. The park is specially made for visitors to "experience" buddhism and isn't a really religious place with monks and nuns, but you can worship the buddha' s and pray... More

Followed a tour booked by the hotel. Was picked up about 9.30 am. The ride to the Nanshan temple took about 30 to 40 mins It was very crowded as that day was a long weekend and there were about 60,000 visitors mainly from local mainland china. The place is too big and will take a whole day to finish... More

I loved this place, its so huge and we can experience different countries culture in one place. Specially focused for Budhhism it includes Nepalese temple as well. But this place is too commercialized...

We saw this buddha from the plane as we flew in and when we got there it didn't seem any smaller! I don't think it is a real temple and suspect it is a ruse for removing money from pockets, but it's an enjoyable spectacle nonetheless. I'd have liked to see a few more toilets and places to get an... More

Don't let the entry fee put you off! Once inside the area there is a lot of different things to see, we went off the main track and found beautiful lakes and gardens. There is a wide variety of different temples to explore and the main attraction is really good, you are able to touch the feet if you really... More

Took a family trip here, as we have never been despite travelling to Hainan frequently as my ancestors are Hainanese. Took bus 25 from Sanya return, 10 rmb a person per way. (You can take bus 16, which apparently is cheaper and a longer journey) The trip takes around 40 min - 60 min. Return. Please note, arriving and departing... More

From Sanya Bay Bus number 25, for 8rmb each, this varies, about 40 minutes from centre of Sanya beach. About 10 mins walk into ticket booth from bus stop. We picked up the translation machines which were very good for information but a bit tricky as long gaps in info so not sure if they were working all the time.... More

Great stroll place for wide range of age. Taking photo in the given spot never ruin the picture. You better get a ticket for tour bus to see entire temple.

This is a pleasant Buddhist park worth a visit as something to do other than hang out at one's hotel or the beach in Sanya. The park is large with a fair amount of walking from the parking lot to the GuanYin statue, though there is a small tram that can take people part way. I visited with my young... More
