Hainan Island, China Resort
From Harbin to Hong Kong, China’s immense and culturally diverse mainland offers a depth and breath of attractions, from ancient to ultramodern, that would take more than a lifetime of visits to behold. Perhaps least typical of traditional China travel experiences is the holiday destination of Hainan Island. This sand-and-sea vacation getaway lies at the southern tip of Guangdong province, just east of northern Vietnam in the Gulf of Tonkin. The island’s year-round warm weather draws sun-seekers to beautiful beaches, inland nature preserves, and resort accommodations. New luxury hotels, elite golf courses, and a growing demand for services that cater to leisure travelers signal Hainan Island as Asia’s next relaxation and recreation hot spot.
