8 Days itinerary in Haikou for 2024

I am planning to visit Haikou in 2024 for 8 days - I am interested in sightseeing places /nature that are uniquely and culturally haikou and taste the Cuisines. When would be a good time to visit when the weather is pleasantly cool and not raining. Where would be the best place to stay where we can easy access to the places of interest via public transport - bus, train, taxis? Please advice:1. What to see and do 2. Where to stay? 3. When is the best time to visit 4. Main form of transport to get around. Thanks and Best regards

We were in Haikou and Wenchang last month visiting friends and were driven around by them. A bit too hot for me, I would prefer the cooler months from Dec to Feb. As for hotel you can check trip.com starting your search from the most popular location, I always do that if I don’t have a specific location in mind.

A few years ago I was also visiting friends in Haikou and Wenchang, but this time I decided to visit Sanya out of curiosity because Sanya has received many negative comments here in this forum. Visited Sanya bay, Dadonghai beach and Yalong bay, and the prettiest of the lot is Yalong bay, fine white sands and clear blue water, it was beautiful under the Sun. All of them were pretty clean. I travelled by taxis and Sanya also has some very unique buildings, I like them.

This trip the chicken rice was just so-so, unlike the previous trip, that was my best ever chicken rice.

Not sure whether this will help:
