Taxi is the easiest way to get around in Sanya Hainan Island. The o­nly problem is all the taxi drivers don't use the meters most of the times, so hard to tell if taxi drivers charge you the right price. Please make a deal with your taxi driver before you get started.  Almost 99% taxi drivers don't speak English.
The blue Jetta Taxi is the newest o­ne in Sanya which is more expensive and bigger than the green, red o­nes. It is also depending o­n the times. If you have a late flight arrival than 11pm, the price to Yalong bay could be USD25/way. If you come during the day, maybe USD15/way is more than enough. If you just get around in downtown Sanya, USD1-2/way is ok with all taxi drivers.

Sanya Festivals

Sanyuesan Festival
The Sanyuesan Festival, also named March Third Festival is the traditional festival of the Li and Miao minorities in the Hainan Island which takes place o­n the 3rd day of the 3rd lunar month of the year. This is the chance for the young girls and boys to get together for singing and dancing. Young people will look for their beloved by singing and dancing competition.
Preparation for the festival starts half a month in advance. Men go hunting and women cook dishes. Then they will gather near a big cave or a big square to enjoy Zongzi (glutinous rice wrapped in bamboo or reed leaves) and cakes, and gather from far and near in the front of the caves.
Bamboo Dance is a must during this festival by girls and boys in traditional clothes. Other games include wrestling, push-and-pull, shooting and swinging
