For me, Hainan is one of the most beautiful places in the world. The island is the smallest and southernmost province of China, known for its tropical climate and fantastic beaches. In today's post I'll show you where to go and what to do in this incredible exotic paradise ☺ When planning a trip to Hainan I highly recommend flying to Sanya and not to the capital Haikou that is also the largest city there.
1. Visit a Resort
Hainan offers so many luxury hotels and resorts with many bathing options. Relax by getting a massage. They're super inexpensive in China and the best I've ever had.
2. Visit the Beaches
There are more than 20 lovely beaches on Hainan. If you decide to go on holiday in Sanya, visit Yalong Bay, Dadonghai or Sanya Bay. When you go to Haikou, the beaches are not that overcrowded but sometimes really dirty, as they're no tourism hot spots. But I definitely recommend asking local people which beach they like the most, then take a bus (This can be really difficult, so ask for help) to get there.
3. Visit a Village
... and get to know Chinese culture by eating Hainan cuisine or by just observing what local people do and how they live. You'll see Hainan people are very welcoming ☺
4. Go to the Countryside
The majority of Hainan's land mass is forest with beautiful bamboo and palm trees. Due to the tropical climate, Hainan is cultivated extensively. There are crops like rice, tropical fruits or coconut. Make sure to visit a coconut plantation! Domesticated farms have animals like goats, cows, chickens and ducks.
The national park is located approximately 15 km west of the capital Haikou. The whole area consists of the two major volcanoes, Mount Fengliung and Mount Baoziling. Super interesting ☺
