Thanks to its growing reputation as one of the most idyllic beach destinations in southern China, Sanya has a nightlife scene that seems to shift in different directions by the week as new bars, restaurants and resorts open their doors and offer varying types of entertainment and events. For now, our Forbes Travel Guide editors think the best nightlife in Sanya is on Yuya Avenue in Sanya City, where you’ll find bars and clubs open until the wee hours of the morning. Many restaurants here have outdoor seating, too, so you can enjoy the scene without having to wait in any long lines to get into some of the most popular spots.
If late nights on the town is not your thing, or you don’t want to worry about arranging transportation to and from your hotel, keep in mind that many upscale hotels and resorts in Sanya also have some form of onsite nightlife, from live beach entertainment and dance clubs to cigar and wine bars.
