Among the hundreds of unique destinations, we would like to start off with a lesser-known destination. This would serve to be a warm welcome for the millions of travelers who enjoy basking in the sun and sandy beaches. Although China is not commonly known for its beaches other than that in Repulse Bay, Hong Kong, there is actually somewhat a beach culture for those who know where to look. Hainan, a province in Southern China is among one of the unique islands that is a firm favorite among beach lovers. It contains the largest ocean-land ratio among all China; in other words, the majority of its area is surrounded by the ocean. Among the top destinations in Hainan would be Dadonghai and Yalong bay. Tropical beach lovers would be basking in pure ecstasy in these two destinations! It is among our personal favorites and top of our list for return trips!
