Sanya (三亚) is a city in southern Hainan province of China. It has a population of 536,000 as of 2006. After Haikou, the capital, it is the second most populous city of the island. Sanya is renowned for its tropical climate and has emerged as a popular tourist destination. It is the site for training of the Chinese national beach volleyball team.
It was the first Chinese city (excluding Special Administrative Regions) to receive the Olympic torch after its departure from Beijing, in the 2008 Olympics held in Beijing. The city hosted the: * Elite Model Look 2008 * Miss World contest in 2003, 2004 2005 and 2007 * Mister World 2007 contest * World's Strongest Man contest in 2006
In the last years Sanya developed to become a getaway from Hong Kong and a relaxing place for extending a holiday without a long trip back home. The first international Resort hotel was opened and managed by Swiss hotelier N.C. Solari in 1999, in Yalong Bay.
Presently, international hotel chains have established in what is becoming a world-known destination, especially following the Miss World beauty pageant in Crowne Plaza, a hotel along Yalong Bay. The resort in Sanya Bay, the Palm Beach Resort and Spa welcomed the first Miss China beauty pageant in modern times. The organizer Julia Morley was decided by Sanya to welcome the international pageant the following year.
In 2009 legendary hotel group Mandarin Oriental opened their first property in mainland China in the Dadong Hai area of Sanya.
Because of geographical and political circumstances unique to Sanya, many niche markets have been cultivated in Real Estate, Food and Beverage management, Chinese Language and Cultural exchange, Agro-tourism, and Wilderness Adventures (just to name a few).
Sanya attracts many international travelers as can be seen by the many Russian and English signs throughout the city.
There is a butterfly museum and a shell aquarium.
A 108-meter Buddhist statue of Guanyin in Sanya, completed in May 2005, is one of the tallest statues in the world.
Yalong Bay is a 7.5 km beach located southeast of Sanya City.
