On the up side, a wide range of fun activities are on offer at Sanya Bay, such as wind surfing, sailing, etc. Located only about 7km from downtown, the rates of hotel, food and activities in Sanya Bay are relatively lower than other beaches.
Dadonghai - Dadonghai is a small beach with fewer tourists than Yalong and Sanya Bays. It is most famous for its blue waters, white sands, green trees and water sports. Shops, restaurants and amusement facilities can be reached easily from the beach as it is only 3km from Sanya downtown.

We did quite a lot of research for travel agency before heading for our first trip to Lhasa, Tibet; since foreign travelers to Tibet have to purchase a tour. China Discovery did a great job in helping us get the Tibet Tourism Bureau permit, booking our train tickets from Xining, Qinghai Province, to Lhasa; and organizing a private Tibetan guide, Tenzin, and a driver, for our 5 days in Tibet. They also helped us with all Covid-19 safety measures and authorization requirements). Great sceneries and sites, especially Yamdrok Lake, Khambala pass (4800m), Potala Palace, Sera Monastery and Deprung Monastery. Our guide Tenzin spoke very well in English and was very helpful.
My suggestion: No need to visit Summer Palace; suggest organizing visit of Yack herd with Nomads in higher plateau and in Snow area. Otherwise, very good and Tenzin was excellent
