Very impressive Guanyin Status

Initially was thinking of going on my own via Bus25. However after an earlier trip on the public bus with grouchy bus driver that would drive off before you get off the bus, I decided to join a local tour. As I spoke Chinese, I joined a Chinese tour. The tour guide was another grouchy person. After reaching the temple,... More

The place is overrun by tourist... I would suggest to go there on a day that is overcast... not too many places to hide from the Sun. The place is huge and it involves a lot of walking. So be prepared to do that. Also... 6 floors to climb through a claustrophobic staircase. Only at the end we managed to... More

the statue was lovely, the views were fantastic and the beaches in Sanya are to die for! I cannot wait to go again later this year.

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
