  • People in Hainan observe an afternoon naptime. It's best to do as the locals do and rest in your hotel room from about 12:30-3:00 p.m. If you do try to shop or eat out, be prepared-you may have to wake up the workers!
  • The best time to visit is between November and March. The rainy season falls between May and October, but the resort of Sanya in the southernmost part of the island is usually warm and sunny year round.
  • If you visit Monkey Island near Sanya, beware! These monkeys run free and they will bite. They seem to get particularly agitated over green bottles so leave your water bottle behind.
  • This island has fantastic tropical fruit and fresh seafood. Be sure to try the chilled coconut milk that is drunk from the shell through a straw.
  • Hainan is a good place to buy pearls, although the ones you find for sale on the streets may not be high quality (or even real.) Good quality pearls can be bought at some of the higher end retail shops in both Sanya and Haikou.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
