Journey to southern China’s tropical Hainan Island for beach-strolling, diving and cultural sightseeing.
About Your Trip
China has its own tropical jewel and it’s called Hainan. This good-sized island lies south of Guangdong across the Qiongzhou Strait, and attracts tourists from the mainland and around the world because of its balmy climate, numerous beaches, inviting surf and lush interior. In addition to topnotch opportunities for leisure and outdoor fun, Hainan also affords the chance to learn more about its indigenous cultures, including the Li people.
Set up at the incredible Yalong Bay Mangrove Tree Resort, you’ll enjoy plenty of rest and relaxation alongside scenic and cultural sightseeing on this DreamTrip to Hainan. One excursion takes you to the western part of the island, renowned for the clarity of its waters, where you can search for seashells and crushed coral on the beach, stroll the lovers’ bridge, visit the Matsu temple, and experience Hainan’s marine marvels firsthand with shore or boat diving. After a lunch of Buddhist vegetarian cuisine, you’ll journey to the Nanshan Cultural Tourism Zone and visit the stone-carved Heart Sutra, the Longevity Valley, the Nanshan Temple, the Buddhist bell-garden, and the 350-foot seaside statue of Kuan Yin, at whose feet you’ll be able to burn incense to bless family and loved ones; on the way home, you’ll stop by Sanya’s Crystal Art Factory. Another outing takes you to the Areca Valley Cultural Scenic Region, where you can marvel at the island’s oldest areca-palm forest and learn more about Li culture: their fast-disappearing traditional buildings, their embroidered face tattoos, their arts and crafts, and their reverence for cattle.
