The district is home to many landmarks like West Island and Tianya Haijiao, which is also known as the End of the Earth.


It also has new scenic spots like the "The Red Detachment of Women," a large-scale live performance with the local landscape as the backdrop, the Dream Water Paradise, the TUS Ice and Snow Paradise, as well as many other well-known resort areas.


The district's Sanya Phoenix International Airport ranks 18th in the country for annual passenger flow. Sanya International Cruise Home Port and its yacht harbor are also located in the district.


Tianya district is immersed in diversified tourist cultures. For example, West Island "Women Militia Culture" was highly praised by the late chairman Mao Zedong, "Tianya Cuture" is recognized as Sanya's landmark culture, and "Culture of Danjia Fishing Village" describes Sanya's rise from a fishing village to a tourist city.


Currently, Tianya district is gearing up to become an overall well-off society that is active in a key phase of economic transformation, as well as a period of prominent opportunities and challenges. It will continue to tackle difficulties and make more achievements in those key projects to effectively facilitate Sanya's positioning as a world class costal city.
