Speaking

2 years ago I traveled in sanya with my friend. We booked a hotel named wen hua dong fang. This hotel is like a village style. The service is good and the hotel’s environment is very beautiful and the hotel is really big because it’s near the sea. We went to beach and there were many foreigners who was sunbathing and who were reading books.
