Sanya - China's Hawaii - Day 1

SABIC China organizes team building events each year by department. Since our project team is so small we throw in with the Corporate Strategy team. This year the event was held at the Westin hotel in Sanya. Sanya, on the southern end of island province of Hainan, is at about 18 deg N latitude - about the same as Hawaii.

The weather is pretty nice in the winter although we didn't hit particularly nice days.

The hotel is right on the beach.

Family members can join at their own expense but don't attend the training sessions.

We didn't rent a jet ski. It was a little cool for that in my opinion.

There were a lot of interesting flowers in bloom.

I thought this one was interesting with the spiral shape.

Does anyone know what these are?

These were interesting, also.

We had dinner at the Intercontinental Hotel nearby. The restaurant features a large aquarium.

The divers come in during the dinner hour to feed the turtles and stingrays. It turns into quite a feeding frenzy.

This is the Sanya duty-free shopping mall located between the Westin and Intercontinental. It is huge mall that allows tourists to purchase items free of import duties. We didn't go in but I understand that once you make your purchase you pick it up at the airport before you get on the plane. Lots of high-end brands - Giorgio Armani, etc.
