Tianya Haijiao is one of the most famous views in Sanya City, which is situated in the southernmost part of Hainan Province. Tianya Hijiao means "the edge of the sky and the rim of the sea." This beautiful name comes from a romantic legend: It is said that two lovers, who came from two feuding families, swore to love one another "to the edge of the sky and the rim of the sea." The two families forced them to break up. In order to escape from their families, they fled to the southernmost part of the mainland, and jumped into the sea where they became two giant stones, hence Tianya Haijiao's name. Say, "love on the edge of the sky and the rim of the sea," if you are planning to make a promise that lasts forever on Chinese Valentine's Day.
