If you looking for something different and don't want to go to sanya, try this island. Excellent restaurants along the beach front. Seafood is expensive though! Excellent market street and good for a walk around. Very local. Hardly any English spoken.

This score is based on what I imagine Hailing Island to be like. Because we were here in winter, it was fairly quiet, and there was a lot of construction. However, the people were very friendly, and there is no shortage of good restaurants. Due to the temperature, we didn't go to the beach, but the sand was golden, it... More

Zhapo town is nice. They have a swim park with rides for the kids. They have a nice Boardwalk that has many places to grab a full dinner or just a snack. Plenty of nice spots to grab a drink or two. The only draw back is they make you stay in a certain area to swim in the ocean.... More

Typical beach. Nothing special. There are boundaries so you can't swim everywhere you want. There are events and night time activities such as fireworks if you go during the right season.

This little island is much more accessible and cheaper than Hainan. Easy to get to and definitely worth a visit. Gets crowded in Summer, but we were there out of season so it was relatively empty. Taxis will try rip you off, but motorbike taxis are inexpensive and there is a free bus(the blue one) that circles the island. Avoid... More

Driving down for about two and half hours from Zhongshan, Zuhai or Guangzhou, you come to Hailing Island. I love it! Nothing to do with horrible Hainan (Sanya), at least so as I experienced it. Unfortunately probably because of a lack of knowledge in tourism management Zhapo, the main coastal city is nothing but a dead place, especially at night.... More

Took the motorcycle taxi from the bus station. This is a fairly new museum which houses the 900-year old shipwrecked Nanhai No.1 which was salvaged several years ago. We spent hours walking through this museum which focuses on the aspects of China's maritime history and advances in underwater archaeology. All exhibits were explained in Chinese and English. The salt water... More
