THE SIGHTS OF SANYA UNFOLD FOR MISS WORLD


The many wonders of Sanya were explored by the Miss World contestants, as they toured some of the region’s sites and beauty spots.

The scenic Phoenix Mountain Park and the lush green Yalong Bay Rainforest were two of the first stops on the sightseeing trip, with the contestants walking through the trees and fields of ferns to get a feel for the natural beauty of the Hainan city’s parklands.

At Luohuitou Deer Looking Back Park, the girls had a wonderful view across Sanya. They heard how the name Luohuitou is derived from a love story. A long time ago, a tyrant emperor desired a pair of deer horns, so he forced a young man named Ahei to hunt for deer on the mountainous areas. When Ahei was hunting, he saw a beautiful spotted deer chased by a panther. He shot the panther with his arrow and ran after the deer for nine days and nine nights. After passing ninety-nine hills, they arrived at the Coral Cliff of Sanya. The deer found no way to escape except jumping into the sea while the hunter was pulling his bow to shoot. Suddenly it turned its head back and changed into a beautiful girl walking towardsthe hunter. Of course, the hunter and the girl fell in love and married.

A charming park has been built on the top of Luhuitou and a huge sculpture 12 metres high depicts the moving legend. Sanya is also nicknamed "Deer City".

Zambia commented: “It is worthwhile coming to theLuohuitou Deer Looking Back Park, as the view is spectacular. There are so many fishing boats in Sanya harbour, which makes it very picturesque.

The contestants also visited the stunning World’s End, with its imposing rocks jutting out of the shoreline. They posed for photographs with media and tourists before one final stop at the Sanya Duty Free shop to see some of the luxury items available for purchase on departure from the island.

The contestants then headed back to the Crowne Plaza Sanya for rehearsals to prepare for Saturday’s Chinese Fashion Show at the hotel.
