Sanya Dongtian Park is located 40 kilometers west of Sanya. Founded in the South Song Dynasty (1127-1279), it has the longest park history in Hainan. As one of the first national 5A level scenic spots, Dongtian Park has been known as "The 800-year-old No 1 Scenic Spot in Hainan" since ancient times due to its unique mixture of seas, mountains, stones and caves. 

Nanshan Mountain Old Pines    

Dongtian Park is located at the foothills of Nanshan Mountain, where the area is widely scattered with thirty thousand "Nanshan Old Pines". It has been listed as a plant protection site by UNESCO and one of its rare and precious tree species is under national second-class protection.  

Those trees and the park as a whole fully express the eternal wish "to live as long as the Nanshan Mountain Old Pines" and constitute a domestic unique natural and cultural wonder.
