What people are saying:

Second, don't buy overpriced tours for hundreds yuan, because this place is easily reachable by public transport. So, entrance is 108 RMB (seems like 1 RMB per 1 m of the statue, haha). Bus from the downtown of Sanya to Nanshan Temple is cca. 10 RMB. You can choose from many public transport routes using Apple Maps. As for instance, you may take following buses from the downtown: 16, 30, 25, 57. Your destination would be "NanShanSi" bus stop, which is just around the touristic parking lot of the Temple What you're gonna see when you enter: Guanyin monument, variety of parks, Nanshan Buddhist temple, Worship square, and I think that's all. Well, the monument itself is really fascinating, but don't forget you're in China. Since showing off and persuading you to buy useless trinkets are cast in Chinese culture, be prepared to take a "fancy" picture with the Goddess on the background, to dine and pay three times more than a usual price; and many other things you wouldn't want to do. Proving that's a "commercial project" for attracting money from tourists, but not an authentic Buddhist temple, you'd find an exposition of gilded Guanyin statuettes inside the hall of the main Guanyin monument. We've been told everyone can pay around 5K RMB and his name would be engraved on the bottom of the statuette and placed into one of the exposition rooms. As l've seen hundreds of statuettes there, I could imagine how much money were accrued by these means. To conclude, I wouldn't recommend this place since it's quite expensive, considering it's not an authentic religious place.

    Very beautiful

    I really liked to see this place, not for religion reasons but because it looks incredible. A lot of people there, but that’s normal everywhere in China. It’s nice to walk all the way from the entranc...

    Nanshan Guiyin Buddha

    This is a must see while visiting Sanya on Hainan island, China. It is one of the tallest statues in the world, surrounded by beautiful gardens by the sea. Perfect Instagram opportunities.

    Worth the Trip

    The giant Buddha area gets very busy but the rest is nice to see as well. This is quite far from Sanya and takes about 50 minutes to get to from the city center. The entrance for low season is 108 and...
