My first time to Sanya city

Sanya city is one of the most amazing cities that I have been to. I had been advised by a friend to get a ticket from China Southern Airlines therefore that is where I got a ticket from. When I got to Sanya city, I could not believe that I had missed out on the beautiful views that it had to offer all my life yet a ticket was so affordable.I had a guide who was assigned to me once I got there. He took me to the amazing Yalong Bay which is one of the biggest beaches in China. It also has the best resorts in Sanya where one can eat in. I remember thinking saving for that ticket was not easy but the ticket was totally worth it. He also took me to Hainan Diving where i partook in several activities like scuba diving. My experience in Sanya city was one for the books.
