Sānyà Market #1

Top choice market in Sanya

Sānyà’s most popular market is ostensibly a place to bargain for cheap and colourful clothes and accessories, but its real appeal lies on the fringes, where food vendors set up shop. Stop for barbecued seafood, grilled corn and local sweets like qīngbǔliáng (清补凉; a cold sweet soup; ¥10) and chǎobīng (炒冰; fried ice, like sorbet; ¥25). Things really heat up after dark.
