Here’s a great way to spend a holiday evening in Sanya: Go on a panoramic nighttime cruise on the Sanya river, complete with a fresh seafood hotpot meal.


The nighttime cruise departs at 6 p.m. daily from the dock of the Sanya Cruise Tourism Center. The cruise route provides passengers a glimpse of some of the landmarks along the river in town.


The seafood hotpot meal includes an assortment of seafoods such as nutritious fish, prawns, clams, crab, and other fine choices as well as plates of green vegetables. To enhance the flavor of the fine seafood fare, sauces including chili, ginger, and dark soy sauce are available for diners to use in making their own dip.

The boat can hold up to 13 people. The dining ambience is impressive, making the cruise a great outing for family bonding events, gatherings with friends, and more.

The view 

During the nighttime cruise, diners can take in beautiful scenic views of Egret Park, Lovers’ Bridge, Xinfeng Bridge, Visun Royal Yacht Marina, Sanya Bridge Luhuitou Peninsula, and Phoenix Island International Cruise Terminal — along with many more city landscapes.

Private night cruises can also be booked to suit your needs. Please contact us directly for more details.
