Sanya Romance Park receives 1.6 million visitors in first year
The park received over 1.8 million visitors, with total turnover of 160 million yuan, in its first year of operation.
In front of Sanya Romance Park’s main gate, a 28-meter-high Goddess Statue of the South China Sea and elephant pillars line a spectacular entryway.
Inside the scenic spot, performers wearing Song Era costumes walk around in ancient-style streets and workshops. Visitors also have the chance to watch magic shows, folk dances and ancient Chinese wedding ceremonies.
In the park, The Legend of Romance, an art and dance performance showcasing the colorful multicultural history of Sanya City, stages daily at the Sanya Qianguqing Grand Theater and has become a popular nightlife site for tourists during their stay in Sanya.
To offer more cultural and entertainment activities for tourists and local residents, other scenic spots such as Elephant Valley Wildlife Park and Ice Snow World are scheduled to open in 2014.
