Taoist Fairyland Park (Big and Small Dongtian) Sanya hainan——Overlooking The South China Sea
Hainan Province

Taoist Fairyland Park (Big and Small Dongtian)

Located 40 kilometers (25 miles) west to Sanya, at the foot of the South Mountain, covering a total area of 22.5 square kilometers (9 square miles), Taoist Fairyland Park was founded in 1187 during Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279). It has a history of more than 800 years, ranking as Hainan's oldest attraction. It is famous for its unique beautiful natural scenery, ecological resources and historical heritages.

 There is an interesting story about its name. In Taoist Culture, there are 10 big Dongtians, 36 small Dongtians and 72 blessed fairylands. Dongtian means fairyland where the Gods live, so the name Taoist Fairyland was given. In Southern Song Dynasty, Mao Kui, the supervisor of Hainan Province, found a big Dongtian and a small Dongtian in the South   

Mountain in Sanya. He then developed this area into a tourism resort and left some inscriptions on the stones and cliff. Now, there is only a small Dongtian under the cliff. According to a book recording the history of Hainan Province, there should be a big Dongtian too, but it can not be found now, leaving an infinite mystery. The name Big and Small Dongtian is still in use.


 Taoist Fairyland Park comprises of six areas: Dongtian Fairyland, Longevity South Mountain, South China Sea Dragon King, Cliff Wall with Inscriptions, Seamounts Wonders, Sanya Natural History Museum. With a total of over 50 attractions, it is an international tourist scenic spot reflecting Taoist culture and dragon culture, melting seaside scenery, science education, customs and coastal relaxation in one body.
