      trains on Hainan

      Hainan Sheng May 7, 2012 at 7:28 PM


      We are off to Hainan in about 6 weeks and we have 5 nights/days in Yalong Bay/Sanya area. We are not particularly beachy people - well not for 5 days, so will be looking for some excursions.

      The hot pools sound nice for one day and another will be looking around the shops I suspect, but I have also read that there is a high speed train to Haikou, do you think it would be safe (eg. have enough time) to do a day trip?

      Also is there any shows/theatres shoowing traditional Chinese performances in Sayna?

      Thanks for any hep you can provide.

      Later thisc year we are planning our holiday in Haikou and the Sheraton hotel seems an attractice location.
      However we would like to know if the hotel is located rather isolated.
      Is it within walking distance from shops/restaurants so it is possible to go to local restaurants as we do not want to eat every evening in the hotel.

      Information on Hainan

      Hainan Sheng Jul 6, 2010 at 12:38 PM



      I am moving to Sanya Bay, Hainan, China in about a month. I have been looking for information about traveling to the island. For example, what sites to see, where to stay, where to eat, and where to travel. However, it seems difficult to find out a lot about the island. Could anyone help me find out where English speakers get most of their information about Hainan? References and wed sites would be a huge help.

Does anyone know anything about this hotel and if it was good? (does it even have a bathtub?) Or how about the food or eating in nearby places?

      1. single pool will be crowded with kids family etc.
      2. room seems old....
      3. prefer a bathtub

      Looking to reconnect and rejuvenate again as couple, and prefer a warm room ;)
      Budget 500-600 RMB per night.

      Jianfengling National Forest Park

      Hainan Sheng Feb 27, 2010 at 9:39 AM

      Hello forum folks!

      I'll be heading to Hainan in late March, but I'm not so much interested in the beaches as the forests and farms. I would like to visit the Jianfengling National Forest Park, but it seems no public buses go there. Does anyone know how I can visit the place? I will be travelling alone on a budget, so I don't want to hire a driver to take me around.

      Perhaps there is a good reasonably priced day trip offered by a travel company? Any recommendations? Or do you think it's not worth visiting?

      Many thanks in advance!

      I'm considering an option of travelling to Hainan (Sanya) alone. Thus, a number of questions appears:
      1 Is it safe, eg to walk around in the evening for a young lady in Sanya and Dadunhai(sorry for incorrect spelling).
      2 are credit cards accepted there? Or shall I take cash with me?
      3 Language. Do Chinese speak English? Russian?
      4 How's the weather at the moment and water (sea) temperature?

      Thanx in advance for replies!

      Hi there,

      Im am going to Hainan End of October for a few days to relax at the beach.
      I heard that the Shimei Bay is very nice and not so much touristic.
      Can't find any hotels on the internet which are on the beach. Only the huge Méridien. Doesn't need to bee that fancy for me.

      Thanks for tipps for places to stay!
