Admiral Zheng He led seven voyages searching for treasure during the early Ming Dynasty. These are a fixture in popular Chinese history, so it's no surprise that Sanya has built a replica tourist ship.
The Paradise No. 1 launches every evening from the South Pier (address below). The staff all wear traditional Ming Dynasty clothing and the ship is painstakingly detailed in its finishing and furniture.
The boat is quite large with a restaurant, bar, movie theater, and nightly show. The trip lasts approximately two hours, from 18:30-20:30.
Name of the ship in Chinese: 永乐浮宫 Address: Original Chinese text: 登船地点：三亚市南边海路海南航程码头(渔村大门斜对面)
