This Middle Kingdom paradise is a fantastic base for a vacation in a tropical paradise made up of azure waters, endless beaches and brown rocks and fresh air so invigorating that it's imperative to inhale at Yalong Bay. Whether for its seabed, sports activities or simply to sunbathe with the emerald sea in the background, this beach that's so renowned among all of China's people is very deserving of your attention. It is indeed in West Island that lovers of diving and water sports will be in paradise, with its numerous dive centers and sports clubs. There's nothing quite like a dish of freshly caught shellfish to restore you after a snorkeling session. If the exotic vacation of Sanya isn't quite enough to bewitch you, try heading for Tianya Haijiao. In this amazing resort you can stretch out your toes and admire a natural setting that feels like it's at the end of the world. An expedition in the Lingshui district to reach Nanwan Monkey island promises an experience of rare intensity. Thousands of monkeys playing in an exquisite forest provide an unusual spectacle for unaccustomed eyes… Finally, treat yourself to some local specialties such as Wenchang chicken or rice cooked in a coconut. The boldest among you will be tempted by snake and turtle soup!
