Communication in Sanya

Hi, in terms of communication, do we have to buy a local SIM card or do the local restaurants use apps like WeChat or Whatsapp ? We will be going straight to the hotels at Yalong Bay and Haitang Bay from the airport and through research, it was said that its difficult to purchase SIM cards at the airport. Any advice ? Thanks.

If you cannot find SIM at airport China Mobile has shop in Fenghuang road no 294. Not too far from airport and can continue to Yalong/Haitang from there.

We will be taking a shuttle service straight to the hotel. Hence, the dropoff nearby to purchase one would not be valid. For the delivery, will there be any charges incurred ?

Thank you very much for the responses. Very much appreciated.

"because it is cashless society in china now"

I live in China for months at a time, last trip earlier this year and have yet to have my cash turned down - anywhere in China.
