Half Day Tour to Sanya Shuichan Wharf/Yacheng & Areca Village, Private Tour to Sanya Shuichan Wharf & Areca Village in Sanya Hainan, Sanya Shuichan Wharf & Areca Village Tour
(Chinese: Binglang) Village is a natural Li minority village,
located about 10km west of Sanya city with a beautiful river called
Binglang River. There are 15 natural tribes in the village with
around 5,000 people. There are thousands of areca trees in this
village, that’s how the village gets her name.
Due to poor
development in the past 20 years, the life in Areca Village still
maintains traditional agricultural mode. During typhoon season in
July till September, there are serious damage by strong wind and
storms. From 2008，Sanya government made the decision to develop this
area into a tourist attraction so it is easier for the local people
to make a living, but it is still a very traditional old village.
There is a big area under development by a local company; we will visit the natural village where you see a true local life.
Shuichan fish Wharf is a fish wholesale market. All the fishing boat go around the ocean 2-3 days or one week even more, then come back to the wharf to sale their seafood. Then retail trader offer seafood to the daily markets after buying from them as soon as possible. It will finish at about 8:00AM, so we need to arrive before the time.
Yazhou Old Town
is located 40 kilometers west of Sanya City, near Nanshan Buddhism
It was said that Ancient Yazhou Wall was built with mixed earth & grass as first, in the year 1198 of Nan Song Dynasty (1127-1297), local people started to build the walls with bricks. Yanzhou had been an economic & political center of south Hainan from Qin Dynasty (BC221-BC206) until October, 1954. In 1954, the administrative center was moved to Sanya, a fishing village.
From Song Dynasty
onward (960-1279), many famous politicians, writers were exiled from
Mainland China, so ancient Yazhou was the paradise for those
politicians away from central government.
In Tang Dynasty (618-907), the famous monk Jian Zhen intended to visit Japan 5 times by boat but failed. In fifth time, his group was stopped by typhoon and drifted to Ningyuan River near Yazhou. During his stay in Yazhou, he helped local people to rebuild Dayuan Temple and left a lot of Buddhist scriptures.
At the end of Song
Dynasty (960-1279), the famous woman textiler Huang Daopo moved to
Shuinan Village and stayed for nearly 30 years. She learnt textile
technology from the local people. She went back to her home town
Wunijing Town (now Huajing Town of Shanghai) and taught her textile
technology to her fellows. So Huangdaopo is respected as the
ancestor of the cloth industry.
During your visit
to Yanzhou Old Town, you will see many old arcade buildings with
south east Asian style, the south gate of Yazhou called Wenmingmen文明门,
Yazhou Xuegong which was a Confucian school in 1044 Song Dynasty
(960-1279) and Shuinan Village, where many famous people were born.
Ancient Yazhou is Yacheng Town of Sanya City now, a very important production base to produce vegetables & fruits which are transported to mainland China even Hong Kong in winter.
