"Haikou - capital of Hainan." Haikou by maisac

Haikou Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 38 photos

Quite a big city, on the tropical Hainan.

The people of Hainan is very calm, even int traffic, unlike in many other places in China, where cars make them aggressive.
Very few speaks English, you should bring a friend, unless you wanna be alone, or speak chinese yourself.
In the evenings, the street fills up with people, a lot! A real social evening culture.

    There's plenty of nice foods in Haikou esp seafood. Hainan chicken rice superb & they do have menues in English. BTW, locals speak Hainanese and generally Mandarin is spoken. Many restaurants have sample dishes displayed so pick your fav
