Using the different modes of transportation in Haikou is a cultural experience in itself. Within the city there is an efficient bus system that will take you anywhere you want to go. However, if you don’t read Chinese, deciphering the bus routes can be a challenge. Some bookstores sell city maps in English with bus routes marked on them. At Creation Bookstore on the top of Mingju Square, the main downtown shopping area, you can find these maps. Sometimes sell maps on top of the pedestrian bridges as well.
Sanya Phoenix International Airport is a new airport, not too big, but it has many airlines go and from other cities of China, like Nanjing, Xian, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Shanghai,
In Sanya city, you will see many buses, but in the three famous resort area, buses you will see is the tour buses, there are two routes are very useful, one is from Sanya Airport to West Station(西站), and another one is from Sanya Tianya Haij
I will say taxis are really different as other cities, not means the cars, i mean the way they doing business, to be honestly, i dont like it.
The taxi`s price in Sanya are debatable, if it`s a long distance travel, you can make a deal with them. But the best way is use the meters, some certain factors, they like to have a set price than using the meters.
