Hainan, besides being the southernmost part of China, is also the country’s largest island, offering a dreamy tropical getaway akin to popular Southeast Asian island destinations. The island’s own unique appeal lies in its collection of many different islets, picture-postcard bays and beach resorts as well as magnificent cultural attractions dotting its coasts and verdant hills.

    The city of Sanya, on the island’s south coast, is Hainan’s poster child – its long curving bay lined with 5-star resorts overlooking a long strip of soft sand and blue waters could easily be mistaken for Waikiki. And since Hainan became China’s largest special economic zone, the island promises even more to come for travelers from around the globe. Your next visit, either for romance, sightseeing, action or family fun, will never be the same as the last.
