3 Days Haikou Highlights Tour

Compared with Sanya, Haikou is a less-obvious but not less-impressive destination in Hainan. As a coastal city, it not only has spectacular sea views and tropical scenery, but also offers historic and cultural experience. If you are not satisfied with a vacation only and want an authentic exploration of Hainan, Haikou is an ideal option. This 3-day tour, covering the best highlights of Haikou, including geoparks, beaches, temples, museums and old streets, takes you to see Hainan from different perspectives.

  • Take a close look at the geological heritage in Volcanic Crater Park before climbing to the highest peak for a far-reaching vista of Haikou City and Qiongzhou Strait;
  • Feel an easeful vacation atmosphere on Holiday Beach with warm sunlight, powdery sands, gentle breeze, and gales of laughter;
  • Stroll among the antique arcade buildings in Qikou Street and taste some featured Hainan snacks.
  • Learn ancient China's derogatory official culture in Wugong Temple and get an overall understanding of Hainan by walking through the displays in Hainan Museum.

Full Itinerary Day by day

Day 1 Haikou Arrival

Welcome to Haikou, the Coconut City! Your tour guide will meet you at Haikou Meilan Airport or Haikou Railway Station, and then escort you to your hotel. The rest of today is free for you to relax yourself and explore this beautiful city on your own.

Day 2 Haikou (B)

This morning, you will first visit Volcanic Crater Park (Huoshankou Geopark) which is natural volcano geology museum about 15 kilometers from Haikou downtown. After the last eruption happened 13,000 years ago, 36 intact volcano craters were left and preserved till now. Fengluling Volcanic Crater is a big highlight. You will walk along the stone footsteps and view many geological remains, dense tropical forest vegetation, beautiful wild flowers, etc. As you climb to the summit (222.8 meters) which is also the highest point of Haikou, you will get a wonderful panoramic view of Haikou City and Qiongzhou Strait on sunny days. It is also available to enter into the crater to explore volcanic shapes at a close distance (not recommended to the seniors because of the steep steps).

In the afternoon, you will drive to Holiday Beach where bright sunshine, gold-sand beach, green coconut palms, gentle weaves and outstanding tropical scenery set each other off. The beach is clean, quiet and safe for all visitors, and many locals also come here for nature. You can comfortably lie on the soft sands in the warm sunshine to fully indulge in the relaxing atmosphere. There are many walking paths which lead you to the coastal views as well as tropical plants. Besides, you can also enjoy other entertaining activities like swimming, barbecue, hot spring and moto-boat (optional). Then you will drive to Qilou Old Street - a historic street with over 600 arcade buildings featuring exotic landscapes. With a fusion of European and Asian styles, these buildings were mostly built by overseas Chinese merchants at the beginning of the 20th century. An arcade building usually has a ground floor served as a storefront to take shelter from rain and sunlight, and one or more upper floors used as living quarters. Today, Qikou Old Street is also a food street offering squid, pancakes, fried food, barbeque items, soups, scallops, bread, etc.

After sightseeing, drive back to your hotel for accommodation.

Day 3 Haikou Departure ( B )

After breakfast, start your half day Haikou vacation by visiting the Wugong Temple first. Wugong Temple, also translated as Five Official’s Memorial Temple, was built in 1889 to honor Li Deyu, Li Gang, Li Guang, Hu Chuan and Zhao Ding who were banished here after criticizing their governments. In ancient times, Hainan once was an untamed barren land instead of a holiday paradise. These five officials made great contributions to the development of Hainan here and have long been respected by locals till now. Besides, Su Shi, a famous poet during the Song Dynasty, was also banished to Hainan and enshrined here. Visiting this temple, you will get a good understanding of the ancient Chinese derogatory official culture as well as a feast of ancient architectural art with Hainan characteristics. The following is Hainan Museum - the best place to learn about Hainan’s history and culture. Thousands of cultural relics are on display in the museum to show every aspect of Hainan, including history, culture, geography, ethnic groups, folk-customs, etc.

After sightseeing, you will be escorted to the airport or railway station for your flight or train.
