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

Tickets are 140 regular but 73 for students. Definitely worth it. One can spend more than 5 hours wondering around the area with the main spots being the 108 meter statue and the nanshan temple. Bus number 16 from Sanya goes to the entrance of the area and it takes more than 1 hour.

Visiting Nanshan temple really complements yr Hainan visit, beautiful Buddhist temple, gardens, awesome vegetarian restaurant and the three face 165 m tall Buddha statue in the ocean. The place is visited by some 4 million people per year, expect some crowd.

The ticket is not cheap at pushing 200rmb, and basically there is only the staue to see. It is impressive, but the parking area is a mess and dangerous, also the staue is in no way a historic monument. They try to push you to buy lots of souvenirs and the park itself is far too overcrowded and noisy. Morevoer... More

I really wanted to see the Guan yin of the South Sea of Sanya while on Hainan. So on our last day my husband and I went here. We took a taxi from our hotel out to the park. The area was much bigger than i had expected and we had to buy tickets to get in. You have to... More

Entrance to nanshan cultural centre is rmb145 whilst there are other fees to visit the temple (golden kwan ying) within and the use of tram. We were there only for the 108m tall 3 faces kwan ying and was totally worth it. We spent 1 hour just for the kwan ying alone. The view is breathtaking. We tried the coconut... More
