Haikou’s Location on Hainan Island:

Haikou is the capital of Hainan Island Province with over 10 million citizens. Located in the northern part of Hainan Island, Haikou faces Guangdong province across the Qiongzhou Strait. The name of Haikou expresses her location well: entrance to the ocean of Nandujiang River, the longest river on Hainan Island.

The biggest prefecture-level city on Hainan Island, Haikou is also the Commercial, Culture & Economic Center of Hainan Island.  As the capital city of Haina Island, Haikou is the most popular city for local Hainan people to look for a job or go to schools.

Though now Haikou is the most developed city on Hainan Island with busy traffic, high rise buildings, universities, and international cuisines, but nothing much happened just before 1988 when Hainan was announced by the central government as the youngest province of China with Haikou as the capital city. Early immigrants from mainland China remembered that there were still working cows on the streets near the center of Haikou, only 2-3 streets with lights, not to mention traffic lights.

Haikou’s Climate, Air quality in Haikou, Haikou’s Weather:

Different from the tropical climate in Sanya, Haikou enjoys a sub-tropical climate with an average annual temperature of 20°C (68°F).

Haikou’s spring (April till June) is hot with humidity, and the high summer temperatures bring heavy rains. Summer (July-September) is a season of typhoons and rainstorms. October & November is very nice in Haikou, warm and dry. Read more on Haikou’s Climate & Air quality

Haikou Airport Transfer Services & Guide.  Getting around in downtown Haikou

Haikou Meilan Airport is the first airport on Hainan Island with domestic and international flights connecting Hainan Island with the rest of the world. The rates could be very different depending on the seasons. Normally during winter times, the flight rates are higher due to high season, while summertime, the rates could be  80-50% off the normal rates.

There are shuttle buses running between Haikou downtown and Haikou Meilan Airport, but with a local taxi, it costs around CNY50-80/way, so most passengers would prefer faster and more convenient local taxies rather than the airport shuttle buses.

To travel from Haikou Meilan Airport or Haikou City Center to Sanya, the high-speed train is the best option

Haikou is well connected within the whole Hainan Island by high-speed trains, high ways, national roads. For local people on Hainan Island, the high-speed train is the best option to reach Haikou from the east and west coast of Hainan Island. While for citizens living in the middle of the island with no train connections, a long-distance bus is still the best way to travel.

To get around in Haikou City Center, a local taxi is the best option. There are also tour buses running from Haikou City Center to major tourism sites in Haikou. But the local government changes the information very frequently, hard to trace the buses, and sometimes, the buses are canceled without notice, so please don’t reply on the tour bus, but check in advance.

As a tourism Island, private transfers and car rentals are easy to find in Haikou.

Shopping Places in Haikou, Haikou Shopping Mall, Haikou Shopping Center, where to buy and where to go shopping in Haikou

As the capital city, Haikou is the best place for local shopping and dining with more varieties and lower prices compared to the other parts of Hainan Island.

Haikou is the shopping center for the whole Hainan Island, especially before Chinese New Year or big holidays. You may meet visitors from all over Hainan in Haikou doing their Chinese New Year shopping: clothes, food, furniture and more. Though Haikou is 1.2 hours from Sanya by high-speed trains, prices in Haikou are at least 20-50% less than that of Sanya. There are major shopping streets and shopping center tourists should never miss during their Haikou visits:

Hai Xiu East Road 海秀东路:

Haikou Qilou Old Street or Haikou arcade ancient street including Dadongmen Wholesale Market大东门市场, Deshengsha Road 得胜沙路、Boai Road 博爱路
