A local taxi will cost you around CNY100/way, BUT we recommend you to take our Sanya Airport Pick up/Drop Off Services due to the following reasons:
1. You travel with lots of luggage as the luggage space of all local taxis are limited because they carry a tank with LNG.
2. One taxi is not enough if you travel with your family members
3. You don’t want to wait in a long queue for a taxi.
4. Don’t want to experience the uncertainty upon arrival: where to go for a taxi, does the taxi driver know my hotel? How much shall I pay for a taxi? What to do if the driver doesn’t put down the meter, but ask me a very high price?
From Sanya Train Station, But No. 36 is the easiest way in CNY2/person/way. Again if you travel with lots of luggage, with our family and you don’t want to wait too long at the train station for local taxis, please book our Sanya Airport Pick up/Drop Off Services.
