Recommended travel time
October-March is the best time to travel in Sanya.
At this time, northern China has entered a cold winter, while Sanya is still as warm as spring. The weather was sunny and rainy, and the temperature remained at around 25 degrees. The pleasant weather also ushered in the peak tourist season in Sanya. There are many festivals and activities. During the peak season, transportation, accommodation and other expenses have been raised to a certain extent, and the overall travel expenses will also increase. If time permits, try to avoid the crowded Spring Festival holiday travel.
In the off-season of tourism in Sanya, the temperature rises to about 30 degrees, and the weather is sunny and hot. The local Miao and Li nationalities hold large-scale ethnic festivals on the third day of the third lunar month (early April of the Gregorian calendar). Hotel and transportation costs are relatively low in these two months, and there are also fewer tourists.
At this time, Sanya is in the rainy season, but it is mostly showers, which do not last long and have little impact on travel. July and August are the hottest months, with temperatures as high as 35 degrees Celsius, and the sun is extremely hot. Pay attention to heatstroke prevention and cooling. In September, there is a typhoon, and tourists should pay attention to weather changes. The travel cost to Sanya during the midsummer season is moderate. Although there will be a student passenger flow in the summer, many tourists who have travel plans will not choose Sanya under the scorching sun.
