Nanwan Monkey Island, Lingshui County

#4 of 12 in Wildlife in Hainan
Take China’s longest over-water cable car ride and arrive at Nanwan Monkey Island. The ride spans 2,138 m (7,014 ft) and will take you to the natural reserve for macaque monkeys. Around 2,000 monkeys live in the reserve, making it China’s largest area for raising and training monkeys. See the animals walking freely around the island and interact with them, or watch one of the shows with trained monkeys. Take care of your belongings, since monkeys tend to steal them to get food.

    Begin, perhaps, from the very beginning. With prices. There are guided tours on the island and they are operators some crazy money. Can't remember exactly how much, but kept going, thought and left me, that if you take a taxi from the hotel, and we lived in the Bay Yalunvan, left much cheaper. Yes and not tied to the time we were in the bus, guide and other joys of extras. So consider:-Go to the island of nicer Steamboats. The main thing with the taxi driver negotiate the price in advance. In order to avoid misunderstandings afterwards. Amount in RMB show on your fingers. Destination on the map. And make sure you understand ... Now about the main thing. -And is it worth it? Firstly, the road is long enough. And tedious. No additional sights and pleasures along the way. Secondly, on the island need to get cable. That, to be honest, here are the most interesting. Although when compared with cable cars at all, then we saw types and cuter. And, finally, themselves a monkey. After all, did we got to the island. If, for example, who was in Bali, Borneo, Cambodia, a local animal park, simply slang a solid. Disappointment is inevitable. Sit on the corners of several monkeys. Quite accustomed to humans and completely trained. Korchat faces and nothing more. If only children show that generally only our ancestors in the image seen. And so nothing special. For the most part feel sorry for wasted time and money. By the way, in the Park several times a day is a view with the monkeys. Type show. If in time, then take a look. True and here to enjoy greatly-don't touch that dial. Because speak Chinese. That our hearing not that dramatically, just nothing at all is unclear.

    Drove alone from Aloha, Monkey Island Hotel is not worth the money for the ticket, unless the funicular expectations (tour operator requests at times greater than 150 Yuan against 50 dollars). A lot of monkeys at the entrance, they snatch food and all the stories about what they're well-mannered, nonsense. May bite. 2 type of view go to China and absolutely not impressive

    Monkey Island on Hainan is located next to the fish market Shin Chs. We visited Monkey Island Nanwan Monkey Island Hainan independently without group excursions, you can do without a guide. Landmark large inflatable monkey. The cashier can immediately see signs and signboards in Chinese, Russian and English languages. The cost of visiting Nanwan Monkey Island, at the checkout price is 168 Yuan, with the US took on 136 Yuan. Next to the cableway in cabins on the island of monkeys. The Park is large and clean, lots of protection and guides all tell and show (many speak English). Swimming pools in the Park, monument, Darwin the monkey Cafe, separate the capsule from the grid in order to safely eat. Monkeys are not aggressive, from hand bags "nothing stolen. There is even a prison for aggressive monkeys. Liked the two theatres, a circus monkey Tetra monkeys and comedic theater. Performances and activities every 40 minutes, the schedule can be seen at the entrance and on the tracks of the Park. In between show gymnastics Wushu and qigong. A leading circus with George's Ribbon, which was very nice, but nothing is clear as all actions are commented on in Chinese. Vacancies in the circus is, despite the season tourists. In General, for both children and adults will be interesting island of Nanwan Monkey Island Hainan.
