Looking around Wenchang downtown district to get to the famous temple and stopping at some memorial with a bloke made out of bronze sitting on a big slab of marble to check my simple Chinese Wenchang city map...

On my way up to Haikou from Wenchang, passing through quite a few small villages and somehow they feel like 1800's western towns with single row houses on both sides, motorbikes look like horses of cowboys and the small police station is the sheriff's office and county jail..... might be all the infamous Sanya moonshine booze.....

Seems they can not make up their minds about vehicles on the Hainan G98 expressway, spot the important difference?
Hainan Island expressways do not have any toll gates, the petrol is more expensive compared to Mainland China to make up for it....

Made it to Haikou (Hainan Island Capital City): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haikou for my business meetings, the weather is not really pleasant, humid / foggy and only around +15 degrees celsius this time of the year (January 2013). Killing some time between meetings and visited Haikou Yongqing Temple, the temple is located not far from the Haikou / Hai'An ferry terminal connecting the island with the China mainland.

Bo'ai Road is a neighbourhood located on the south side of the Haidian River, at the northern part of Haikou city. It comprises many dilapidated buildings with European fusion-type architectural facades. The buildings are almost all painted white, and are usually no more than a few stories tall. The area contains mainly narrow streets and alleyways, and is populated almost entirely by indigenous Hainan people. The neighbourhood is the commercial centre for textiles, pets, exotic foods, replica antiques, shoes, hardware items, and wholesales convenience store products.

After a few days up in Haikou departed capital city heading South again towards Sanya to warmer pleasant weather via National Road #224.
Natural Rubber Plantations and lots of Beekeepers along the road, either operated by beekepers with tricycles, motorbike or the ones equipped with this kind of pictured truck set-up.

Lot's of new tourist attraction signs along the roadside (National Road #224), haven't seen them some years before, going the same road with a 4x4.

Got some good mates working in a Yalong Bay resort hotel and they arranged a nice chocolate welcome set-up in the room.
