If you are a fan of beauty pageants you would have known that four World Beauty Pageants were held in Sanya. With soft golden sand, the beach can be described as beautiful. Definitely better than the much-hyped Kuta beach in Bali where the beach is black and firm enough for motor-bikes.
If you are observant enough, you will see Caucasians in the photo. I was surprised to see so many of them in Sanya, and I later realised that they were Russians. Huge signs in the Russian script were everywhere enticing them to hotels, restaurants and entertainment spots.
Like in Phuket, rent a beach hut and spend the day gazing out to sea. And, of course, all that contortions on the wooden deck chair will soon give you all sorts of aches, real and imaginary. Naturally, someone then comes along and offer you a Chinese massage.
