October 2014 – Hainan

China Wanning Cup – The modern combat sports’ success story originated in China. At the south coast of China is a beautiful tropical island called Hainan. It is said that in 2698 BC, the Yellow Emperor Huangdi introduced to China the earliest systems. As the holy ground of martial arts, all athletes can compete and perform their best moments of combat sports here.

SOHO House in Hainan

Hainan is one of the most famous homelands of Chinese who live overseas. Many Hainanese who returned from abroad contribute to most of the developments in this province. In this place, there are many ways to have fun after the sun goes down. Experience the rich night life as you go bar hopping along the Guomao Road. Here’s a picture of me with my buddies at the Soho bar.

Le Meridien

Le Meridian offers perfect settings for your modern taste. This hotel is the best place for travellers who are looking for a more relaxed stay – away from the city. The environment offers tranquillity and personalized service. Here are a few snaps I took of the beach area and pool area.

Hainan Airport

This little tropical type airport has clean and reasonable facilities. The airport staff is also nice and their check-in gates do not seem to be crowded at all. Also, the koi fish pond makes the water sound relaxing and tranquil. This aesthetic appeal charms visitors from different countries.

It isn’t every day that your airport experience is a positive one. However, while I was in Hainan Airport, I thought it was really one of the nicest airports I have ever seen.
