"What an experience! Sanya, China"
December 27: Arrive at Sunny Sanya Family Inn
-Meet Mozzafar, Michelle and Andy after Mike and I return from strolling on the boardwalk and checking out the bars and restaurants.
December 28: Nanshan Temple
-Mike, Tracy, Michelle and Mozzafar venture out to the Buddhist Temple. (See album for details about Nanshan Temple)
December 29: Monkey Island
-Mike, Tracy and Michelle go to see Macaques running free. (See album for more details about Monkey Island)
December 30: Out and about in Dadonghai
-Mike, Tracy and Michelle venture into town to see what's new and exciting!
Result: Got Michelle to try sugar cane for the first time and found a new variety of sweet sop!
Also, we got to ride on a motorcyle carriage "thingie"-ended up at Louhitou park--which we didn't plan to go to..so for 10RMB round trip from Dadonghai, we headed back to the hotel for Michelle's final night in Sanya.
December 31- Louhitou Park and a dissappointing ringing in of 2009
-Mike and Tracy head to Louhitou Park-not far from our hotel. We paid 70RMB to ride the slideway up into the mountains and for entrance to the park (see album for details about Louhitou Park).
We got an amazing view of Sanya City and took in all the monuments that represent love and enduring relationships.
After a fun ride down the slideway back to the ground, we attempted to get a ride back to our hotel--why is it that we paid 5RMB to get up there and to get down they wanted to charge us 10? Every time when the price should be 5 they automatically say 10--bunch of rip-off artists!!
Anyway, we walked off and caught a cab as we walked back down the mountain...Good for us, right?! lol
NEw Years Eve--what an experience! Talk about being in Moscow unintentionally--There weren't any parties along the strip that weren't in RUSSIAN--was sooo boring...ended up just walking along and heading back to our room-what a great start to 2009--ah well, could've been worst!
January 1-3: Explored Sanya, went into Sanya City
