How to get to Wuzhishan City
Located in the middle of Hainan Island, there is no airport nor train station connected Wuzhishan with the outside world, the only means of transportation is by bus. Wuzhishan is closer to Sanya, the most popular beach destination on Hainan Island. So most travelers will reach Wuzhishan from Sanya.
The bus ticket costs CNY23/person/way, the first bus from Sanya to Wuzhishan leaves at 06:50am, and the last one at 20:00pm. There are buses every half an hour. It is possible to book bus ticket in advance on line. The website is www.0898hq.com, but you have to read Chinese. The bus ticket cost is the same from Wuzhishan to Sanya CNY23/person/way, the first bus leaves at 06:50am from Wuzhishan to Sanya, and the last one leaves at 18:40pm from Wuzhishan to Sanya.
It is easy to reach Wuzhishan from Haikou South Bus Station. The cost is CNY57/person/way. The buses travel first along the east coast for about 2 hours on high way, then turn to west from Lingshui through the mountains for another 1.5 hours. The first bus leaves at 06:30am from Wuzhishan to Sanya, and the last one leaves at 17:15pm from Wuzhishan to Sanya.
There is another option to reach Wuzhishan along the middle road, the very inner part of Hainan Island. For sightseeing tour, we would strongly recommend the middle road to view a splendid Hainan. It takes about 5 hours, so please start around 9am so you won’t miss the wonderful landscape on the way. But the buses are not in very good conditions, maybe no air-conditioners. And the buses may stop on the way to pick up more guests. There are buses at 6:30, 12:05, 13:00, 14:00, 15:00, 17:50 and the cost is CNY65/person. way.
