Hainan, dubbed the Hawaii of the Far East, represents a new phase of tourism development in China and is one of the most exciting new destinations in the world. Situated on the pristine waters of the South China Sea, Hainan boasts some of the most unspoilt coastlines seen anywhere in the world. With gorgeous beaches such as Yalong Bay widely regarded as some of the finest on Earth, as well as a unique traditional culture that dates back over 2000 years, Hainan is a truly an Island of splendour.
Hainan is also home to some of the world's most exciting tourism developments, with the Chinese government pledging around 25 billion Yuans over the next 10 years to help develop the Island province. Some of these projects include, the construction of Southern Asia's first 7 star hotels, one to be built in Sanya and the other in Haikou. The new bullet train which can reach speeds of up to 280km/h, from Haikou to Sanya city, will help facilitate faster and more environmentally friendly travel around the Island. The development of the world's largest duty-free shopping area, over 7000 square metres in Hai Tang bay.
