There are 2 airports on Hainan Island, one is in Haikou, the capital city of Hainan Island, the other is in Sanya, the beach destination of Hainan Island. If there is no direct flight from where you stay to Haikou or Sanya Airport, the best option is to take a transit flight via Guangzhou from Mainland China and Hong Kong from Overseas.

There are direct flights from the following overseas countries/areas to Hainan Island including China Hong Kong, China Macau, China Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, South Korea, Russia, and London.  With Hainan Visa Waiver Policy, it is now very easy to make a last-minute trip to Hainan Island.

Travel by trains from Mainland China to Hainan, updated trains from Mailand China to Hainan Island

Hainan Island is the second-largest island of China after Taiwan. Though it is Island, it is still possible to travel by trains from Mainland China.  Traveling by train from Mainland China to Hainan would be a good choice for travelers with enough time and want to enjoy the landscapes along the railway.

But some may wonder how you can travel from Mainland to an Island without a railway. NO, no railway connects Hainan Island with Mainland China, but the Chinese engineers solved the problem with China’s first sea-rail link by using a ferry to transfer the trains. All the trains will be disconnected upon arrival at Hainan, last stop on Mainland China, then a ferry will transfer them to Hainan Island on the trains will be reconnected and continue their journey to Sanya.

So far there are trains from Guangzhou to Haikou, trains from Beijing to Haikou & Sanya, trains from Shanghai to Haikou, and also from Changsha Hunan Province to Haikou.

For updated trains from Mailand China to Hainan Island, please check the official website of China railway www.12306.cn.

By Buses to Sanya/Haikou Hainan Island China:

Though you could travel to Haikou & Sanya, Hainan Island by buses from some Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Guilin, Nanning and more cities, but it is really a hard journey. So, we don’t recommend this transportation. It is not fun to sit in a very crowded bus over 12 hours with closed windows.

So, with the above information, I believe you have found the right way to reach Hainan Island by flights, trains, ferry or to drive your own car to Hainan Island.

Reach Hainan Island from Mailand China by Trains, Flights, Ferries, or drive to Hainan Island.
