Eat[edit]

Can we get some suggestions of somewhere to eat that isn't western cuisine? Just because the rest of the world (apart from China) thinks Americans are vulgar and ignorant doesn't mean it's something we should aspire to 221.11.194.213 06:42, 17 September 2008 (EDT)

[edit]

I found the new banner in Wikimedia. It isn't that great but this was the largest article without a banner and I felt that it needed something.

Please go ahead and find a better banner! --Andrewssi2 (talk) 13:19, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Guide? DotM?[edit]

This article is currently tagged as Usable. If it were Guide it would be an obvious addition to Wikivoyage:Destination of the month candidates.

What would it take to get it there? Any volunteers? Pashley (talk) 18:10, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

The first impression is the rather red Districts section which we should do something about (turning links into bolded text if nothing else). Furthermore the article needs photos & coordinates and is slightly messy. Eat should probably be divided into price classes, and Drink could probably also be split up by type of establishment or city district (whichever is more appropriate).

Scanning it quickly now, there appear to be a lot of broken links & it needs copy edits & perhaps some reorganistation. It would still be a fine DotM candidate if it were improved to Guide level. Would it make a good Wikivoyage:Collaboration of the month to get it there? Pashley (talk) 12:59, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

Low prices?[edit]

Last time I was in Sanya, about 2009, I met two working-class middle-aged lads from Baltimore whose idea of a good holiday involved lots of good dining plus plenty of booze & whores. They got some sort of cheap flight special & figured flying to Sanya & partying there was a great deal cheaper than driving to Miami which they'd done the previous year. Would that still be the case?

Teach English[edit]

Under 'Do', the Teach English listings are not really what they claim to be. These are language circles, where locals and visitors can meet and speak in English. Since one of the listings says "Good to get inside information on Sanya, many of them will be happy to show you around for a chance to speak some English", I suggest if this is needed at all, it ought to be under 'Cope' as a useful tip for travellers with limited Chinese, rather than 'Do'.--ThunderingTyphoons!

I haven't been to Sanya, but I went to an English Corner in Beijing a few times. I think it fits under "Do"—an activity that allows you to socialize and meet some locals even if you don't speak (much) Chinese. But I agree that it shouldn't be labeled "Teach English", and I'll adjust the heading accordingly. —Granger (talk · contribs) 10:32, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
