Perhaps the best way to relax yourself is to find a tranquil and peaceful place far away from the hustle and bustle and experience a slow life. Hainan is naturally suitable for a leisurely, slow life, whether you are at the seaside, in the mountains and forests or in the countryside.

At the seaside

To visit Daidai Island, you need to arrive at Nanwan Monkey Island Pier first, and it will take a few minutes from the Pier to Nanwan Peninsula by ship. After boarding the Peninsula, you can take a tour bus to Daidai Island. And you can enjoy the spectacular scenery of mountains, sea and stones along the way. Located on the other side of the Nanwan Peninsula, Daidai Island with the beach coastline 5.9 kilometers long is one of the best protected beaches in Hainan.

Compared with other beaches, Daidai Island boasts the tranquil surroundings, where there is no bustling crowd. It is a beach where visitors can listen to the sound of the ocean with sea breeze for a whole day. Thus the island got its name “Daidai (in a trance)” due to its advantageous environmental conditions that provide a natural place for visitors to relax themselves.

In the mountains and forests

Hainan has a unique pristine tropical rainforest landscape, featuring Wuzhi Mountain, Limu Mountain, Diaoluo Mountain, Yinggeling, Jianfengling, Bawangling, Qixianling, etc., which contribute to the lush greenery all year around.

Founded with the approval of the State Forestry Ministry in 1992, Jianfengling National Forest Park is the first national-level forest park characterized by tropical rainforests since the founding of New China. It is the largest and best preserved tropical forest in China and was chosen as one of the top 10 most magnificent forests in China in 2005.

Ancient trees and "living fossil" plants can be seen everywhere in Jianfengling, with the vines and tree roots intertwined, which form a spider-web-like natural screen. A trip to Jianfengling Park is incomplete without a visit to Tian Chi, which literally means “Heaven’s Lake”. The serene surface of the lake creates a perfect reflection of the sky, as well as the rainforest-covered mountains above. Thanks to the lake’s rainforest surroundings and altitude some 800m above sea level, Tian Chi is often shrouded in mist.

Limu Mountain: As the source of three great rivers in Hainan- Nandu River, Wanquan River and Changhua River, Limu Mountain has become a hot place for tourists who love forest tours.

Yinggeling: Compared with Wuzhi Mountain, Yinggeling is less well-known. Due to this, there are relatively few tourists going to Yinggeling, which makes it become more mysterious and attractive. Yinggeling is an important branch of Limu Mountain, one of the three largest mountain ranges in Hainan. The highest peak, Yingzui Peak, is 1811 meters above sea level, ranking the second highest peak in Hainan.
