China Destination Guide -  Hainan 海南

Hainan is often referred to as China's Hawaii - at least on the Mainland. In a short space of time it has gone from provincial backwater to a top tourist destination and it's largely about the beaches and tropical climate. While much of the rest of China shivers through the winter it is still warm here and so the crowds flock. It is not quite Thailand but it is not a bad effort and is worth tagging on at the end of a winter trip for a taste of summer warmth.
China Travel Company Tip   TCTC Tip: Hainan is usually visited after Guilin and before finishing a trip in Hong Kong.

  • Haikou is the island's capital and is witnessing an economic boom that has turned it into a construction site. Despite that it still has a tropical ambience and friendly locals.
  • Sanya is where all the beach lovers end up. Most international chains have resorts here and the beaches aren't bad at all. What is refered to as Sanya is actually 3 areas, Sanya Bay, Dadonghai and Yalong Bay, the latter being the the plushest.
  • It's not all beaches though. Wuzhishan is up in the hills and is the center of the Li and Miao Ethnic minorities.

Although perhaps lacking the charm of South East Asia, Hainan is very convenient to add on as a relaxing few days at the end of your trip.
