Under $100 / Asia

Sanya sits at the southernmost tip of Hainan province and boasts some of the most breathtaking beaches in China. The city is a terrific place to spend a day. Since many of the main attractions are outdoors, it doesn’t cost much to visit.

 

Sanya’s littered with 5-star dining, which can make it hard to find affordable eats. To save cash, start with a quick bite at your hotel from the breakfast buffet. From there, head over to the West Station to get a bus a short way out of town. Tianya Haijiao is the southernmost point of China’s land area. Though just a beach, it offers spectacular views that are worth the trip. On a clear day you can see the various islets off shore. Entrance and the bus ride there are roughly $15.

 

Next, keep trekking outside of the city to Nanshan Daxiaodongtian. The park was discovered 800 years ago in the Song Dynasty and contains wooden villas, stunning beaches, a Taoist temple and a lighthouse. The Sanya Museum of Natural History is also here. Entrance and the trip there and back will cost $25.

 

For lunch grab some street food in Sanya. A meal of Wenchang chicken will run you only $5. Once you’re full, take a tour of the Yalong Bay Tropical Paradise Forest Park. The park showcases the best of Sanya and Hainan Island amidst a tropical rainforest within city limits. Inside you’ll find Orchid Valley, Canghai Tower, the Giant Buddha Stone, Dragon Carving Square and the Kongshan Pavilion. Entrance is $22 and exploring here will take the rest of your afternoon.

 

End with a delicious meal at Market at Edition for the hotpot buffet. A meal will cost $20.
