There are a total of eight major cities and ten counties (County (People's Republic of China)) in Hainan Province. Haikou on the northern coast of Hainan Island is the capital whilst Sanya is a well-known tourist destination on the south coast. The other major cities are Wenchang, Qionghai, Wanning, Wuzhishan (Wuzhishan City), Dongfang (Dongfang, Hainan) and Danzhou. Wenchang Chicken is a dish known throughout the province of Hainan. Although there are many varieties of this dish, the name is usually used to define a type of small, free-range chicken from Wenchang city, located on the east coast of the province. As opposed to battery (Battery cage) chickens, its meat has more texture and is somewhat drier. Hainan Island is often divided into eight regions for tourism purposes: Haikou and area (Haikou, Qiongshan, Ding'an (Ding'an County)); the Northeast (Wenchang); the Central East Coast (Qionghai, Ding'an); the South East Coast; the South (Sanya); the West Coast also called the Chinese Riviera (Ledong, Dongfang, Xianghsui, Changjiang); the North West (Danzhou, Lingao, Chengmai); and the Central Highlands (Baisha, Qiongzhong, and Wuzhishan Tongzha). *The novel, ''Red Detachment of Women (Red Detachment of Women (ballet))'', by Liang Xin, was set in Hainan. The novel was first adapted to a feature film in the 1950s, and then a ballet in the 1960s as one of the Eight model plays. Most of the people of that time derived their romanticized image of Hainan Island from the scenes in the ballet, particularly that of the vivid forests of coconut trees, the Five Finger Mountain (Wuzhi Shan), and the Wanquan River. *One of the satellite launch centers of China is located in Hainan near the city of Wenchang. It is called Wenchang Satellite Launch Center. It is the closest Chinese launch center to the equator. *Parts of the 2010 movie ''If you are the One 2'' (非诚勿扰 2) were shot in Shimei Bay (石梅湾) near Sanya.

and the Wenchang accent is considered the standard variant of Hainanese. The city houses the Confucius Temple, one of the oldest building on the island, and Wenchang School, a prestigious school funded by many overseas Chinese. The city is not as "modern" and booming as Sanya. It is rather like a showcase on the lifestyle of ordinary Hainanese. It has only 520,000 residents, but is the ancestral home for over a million overseas Chinese, mainly in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. These immigrants have influenced the lifestyle back in Wenchang. During the day, people enjoy hanging out in a (kinda) cafe with a cup of tea and a slice of cake for Y1-2. At night, they may play table tennis, sing KTV and dance Tango in Wenchang Park. The city also has a huge coconut plantation with more than 500,000 trees shadowing the beach resort area. The water quality is not as clear as certain beaches in Sanya, but the area is largely unspoiled by tourism. Tourism-related scams and crimes are almost unheard of. The friendliness of local people have made it an appealing alternative to Sanya. Get in By car :It takes about 1 hour by car from Haikou to Wenchang (80km). By bus :There is also a bus running from Haikou to Wenchang. ¥18 person (60 minutes) Express Bus from Haikou East Bus Station to Wenchang Bus Station. Departures between 0640am to 0830pm every 30 minutes Express Bus from Wenchang Bus Station to Haikou Bus Station. Departures between 0640am to 0830pm every 30 minutes By Cycling :The Provincial Road S201 between Haikou and Wenchang, which is only 75km long, has been popular among beginner and amateur cyclists because it's flat and easy to ride. However, the road has been under extensive reconstruction in 2011, making it among the worst roads you could see in China. In your last 50km heading to Wenchang, the road is extremely dusty, muddy and crowded with construction trucks which make the air quality worse like a hell. The better route at this moment is Haikou-Fenglai(蓬萊鎮)-Nanyang(南阳)-Wenchang. The route is 90km and it's much more pleasant. Get around See *
