Coconut City

Known as the "Coconut City" due to its palm-lined streets, island-city Haikou serves as capital of Hainan Province. With its bustling port and large university, the cultural and economic hub boasts a fantastically long coastline, with crystal clear waters, sandy beaches, and a surprisingly low level of pollution. A tour of Haikou's old town reveals temples, a diversity of architecture, and shops selling traditional Chinese medicine and fine silks. Across the city eateries serve up a wide array of traditional, local delicacies, including fresh seafood. Use our international travel planner: Haikou and all its delights await.
