China's smallest and southernmost province, Hainan boasts a tropical climate that feeds a thriving tourist industry. Wealthy Chinese have built second homes here, taking advantage of the golden sandy beaches along the coast. A tour of Hainan's hilly interior reveals traditional ethnic Li and Miao villages and a volcano park, while a floating sea turtle hospital off the coast welcomes visitors and volunteers. Explore the island by bicycle, or take to the waves to become part of a burgeoning surf scene. A good mix of luxury and humbler spots, plus a solid infrastructure, makes a vacation in Hainan easy and thoroughly pleasant.
