Day 01 Sanya ( Meals: -/L/- )
Program: Tianya Haijiao, the Luhuitou
Depart from your hotel to visit the Tianya Haijiao. Tianya Haijiao means "the end of the sky and the corner of the sea" in Chinese. The reason this name was given is that this place was the farthest place ancient Chinese people could reach, so it was considered as the end of the sky and the corner of the sea. It is twenty kilometers from the Sanya City, is a somber-looking beach with clear water, coconut palms and grotesque rocks. This spot is hugely popular with Chinese tourists who flock here to be photographed in front of the huge rock marking the special meaning. It is too famous to miss if you come to the Hainan island.
After having lunch at the local restaurant, visit the Luhuitou. About 5 km (3 miles) south of Sanya City in Hainan Province lies a hill extending in the shape of an enthralling deer looking back. This hill is the very same one mentioned in the legend of the Li Minority Group.There once lived a diligent and brave hunter in the Wuzhi Mountain area so the legend goes. This young man came across a charming deer one day while out hunting in the mountain. He chased the deer for about nine days and nights, traversing numerous hills and dales.
Having reached the Luhuitou cliff edge, there was no way (where) for the deer to escape except into the churning sea below. Just as the hunter was about to shoot the deer with an arrow, it miraculously transformed into a beautiful and enchanting girl. Surprisingly, the deer was originally a fairy girl and was fond of the excellent character of the young man. She took a fancy to the seaside around Sanya and led the man here in the guise of a deer. They fell in love, got married and later settled in a village here. Hence the hill, the peninsula and the village are all named Luhuitou. Sanya City is also referred to as "Deer City".Luhuitou Peninsula is not only a romantic peninsula, but also a lush, natural environment covered with deciduous trees and plants. It is the ideal place to spend a winter holiday in China.
