San Francisco Wedding Photographer | Sanya

January 24, 2017 portraits

Recently I had a trip back to China, visited Sanya which was known as  “Hawaii of the East”. The weather was perfect with fresh air, here at one beach I met one beautiful girl who was from my hometown. Did one short portrait session for her. She was quite comfortable to pose in front of my lens, we had a wonderful to spent together.  From the short conversation I had with her, she’s also here in Sanya for a short vocation and she currently lives and works in Chengdu.   Wish her a wonderful stay and a fresh body/mind  when it’s the time to go back to work!


A little bit more info of Sanya:

Billed as “China’s Hawaii”, Sanya has 20km long stretches of beach. As the only tropical city across the coastline, it is definitely booming and packed with a lot of water sports such as snorkeling and jet-skiing, rainforest hiking, and innumerable hotels ranging from zero to five stars.

With sunshine all year around, temperatures hover around 25*C even in January and 30*C in the summer time. Its islands and beaches are beautiful and the water in Yalong Bay and Dadonghai are clean enough to have a good swim, but you may also want to head to Wuzhizhou Island or further north to visit unspoiled and natural scenery.

While tourists come in every season, the peak season starts from 1 October to the end of winter. During the winter, Sanya is a popular escape for Russians who primarily stay at Dadong Hai (大东海 Dàdōng hǎi) and Northern Chinese to escape freezing weather. In the Chinese New Year, the city will be flooded with tourists and expect everything to be extremely expensive.
