Dadong Hai (大东海) is the favourite meeting spot among Russians and other foreigner in Sanya in China's Hainan Province.
The taxi ride costs about ¥20-¥40 by meter from Sanya Bay or around ¥80-100 from the airport.
Taxis are numerous, and fairly easy to hail. Beware of the unofficial "Black Taxis" touting for business, as they have been known to overcharge or even hold up passengers.
