National 4A Scenic Spot title goes to Haitang Bay Paddy Field Park
Sanya’s Haitang Bay Paddy Field Park recently passed an assessment to officially become a National 4A Scenic Spot. The assessment was performed by the Hainan Evaluation Committee for Quality Grading of Scenic Spots on September 21st, 2018.
Haitang Bay Paddy Field Park is the largest agri-tourism park in Sanya.
Located near Wanpo Road, Linwang Township, Haitang District, the park serves as an important recreational complex that integrates sightseeing, scientific research, science education, environmental protection, and an open-air live show.
The park features a garden with flourishing rice paddies, a dinosaur boulevard with 323 life-sized dinosaur models, paddy-themed restaurants, and a flower garden.
The park is divided into two main sections. One includes renowned agricultural scientist Yuan Longping’s research center. Yuan is known for developing the world’s first hybrid rice breed in the 1970s and for his breakthroughs in developing genetic materials and technologies essential for growing high-yield hybrid rice breeds. The park’s other section is home to the Nanfan Comprehensive Experimental Base, which is also an agricultural research center.
Since opening to the public in October 2017, the park has received over 30,000 tourists.
