Print Updated: 2019-04-30

Highways in Sanya run in all directions. They, and especially the roundabout expressway and Sanya-Kaihou Central Highway, conveniently connect the city with Haikou and all areas of the province.

Phoenix Island International Cruise Port and the Central Fishing Port have been built. In the near future, Sanya will become an important hub for marine passenger transportation and freightage in the south of Hainan Island.

With the completion of the Guangdong-Hainan railway, Sanya is connected to the domestic railway network and can initiate freight and passenger transport directly across the country. In 2015, the first tropical roundabout high-speed railway in the world was completed. It takes three hours to travel around the Island and 90 minutes to reach the provincial capital.

In 2018, Sanya became the first non-provincial and prefecture-level city in China with an airport annual throughput of more than 20 million. Today, Sanya is connected by sea navigation to more than 30 cities in 14 countries and regions. Sanya Phoenix International Airport currently operates 30 international or regional routes, six routes with intensified flights. In 2019, 15 new international or regional routes will be opened, which will preliminarily facilitate effective connections between international and domestic routes and gradual form an international market circle of “4 hours, 8 hours and 12 hours”.
