September 9-12: Haikou Car Show


Are you one of those people who enjoys massive events at convention centers? The sound of the crowd, the total lack of anywhere to sit down, the really cool new things on display? If so, the Haikou Car Show 金秋车站 RMB30 at the Hainan International Convention Center might be for you.

Thurs-Sun Sep 9-12: 9am-6pm. RMB30, purchase tickets through the movies app, or connect with That’s Sanya on WeChat for the mini-program link. Hainan International Convention Center. See listing.

September 10: Acid Coast


We're insufficiently up to date on the rave scene to know what "Acid Coast" is but HAK Raver has thrown some baller parties in the past. We really wish they would send their flyers out earlier in the week so we could, we don't know, make plans or something like that.

Fri Sept 10: 10pm-Late. RMB 60. 414Club, second floor of Nineteen Taphouse. See listing.

September 10-11: N Park Street Fair


This weekend, the N Park street fair is back with musical performances, local food, homemade soaps, and offerings from local artists.

Until September 12: Thai Electronic Music Festival

We’re a little bit dubious as to how the Thai Electronic Music Festival (傣迪电音粉色沙滩狂欢节) is actually going to be and we don’t really understand how a week long music festival could be ending daily at 9pm, but the Water Park at Mission Hills is hosting a music festival through to the 12 of this month. Price RMB 77 for adults, RMB 38 for children.

Daily until Sep 12: All day, ends 9pm. RMB77 per adult, RMB38 per child. Water Park at Mission Hills. See listing.

September 10-12: Sexy Cos


Everyone’s favorite gay bar has an even more risque theme than usual for this weekend's parties, but don't worry if you aren't comfortable being (un)dressed to the nines in public, as most of the crowd will be wearing the Haikou norm of t-shirts and flip-flops.

Fri-Sun Sept 10-12, 10.30pm: Free entry. Frey. See listing.
