Qixianling Mountain (Seven Fairy Mountain), located in Baoting Li and Miao Ethnic Group Autonomous County, is 76 k's away from the international tourism city Sanya in the South and 39 k's from the famous mountain city Wuzhishan in the North.























Large yellow inflatable rubber ducks are in fashion everywhere, this one spotted on the bottom of Qixianling Mountain.....

Flat rear tyre just in front of the Dadonghai bike repair shop in Sanya downtown area.
As the Jialing JH600 has tubed tyres, the whole rear wheel has to dismantled to fix or install a new inner tube.
Love tubeless tyres as easy plug and ride again with reliable tire pluggers (rope or mushroom plugs) and an electric air compressor.











Well, surprise ~ surprise, my mates well known trusty and reliable Chang-Jiang sidecar sits once again in a bike repair shop... the joy's of owning a piece of vintage China motorcycle history.

Bush gas station operated out of a roadside shop by a betel nut chewing couple either drunk or high as kites, barely able to speak... just some mumbling and filling up with crappy gas, got me going again without probs till the next real gas station.

Houchen Coffee shops popping up in the countryside along major roads and the G98 Hainan Ring Expressway, good for some breaks in an air-conditioned environment.

The Temple of Five Lords (Wugong Ci) in Haikou: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temple_of_Five_Lords
Five Officials' Temple or Wugong Ci in Chinese, are approximately 5 kilometers (about 3.1 miles) from the centre of Haikou City, and were originally constructed during the reign of Emperor Wanli in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).
It was renovated on several occasions during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). Now, it is a place known for its sense of peace, tranquility and beauty.

Lingao is situated in the north-west of Hainan Island. It borders Chengmai County to the east and Danzhou to the south with the Qiongzhou Strait to the North.
Stopover at the famous Lingao monument out at the Lingao Cape, a large stone monument for the Hainan Island Campaign.
Landing Operation on Hainan Island, was a series of battles fought between the Kuomintang (Nationalists) (National Revolutionary Army, NRA) and the People's Liberation Army (PLA) during the Chinese Civil War in the post-World War II period, and resulted in a PLA victory.
More details and info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landing..._Hainan_Island







Lighthouse in the back at Lingao (Lamko Point)1893. Active; focal plane 21 m (69 ft); three white flashes followed by one longer white flash every 27 s. 21 m (69 ft) hexagonal pyramidal skeletal tower with lantern, gallery, and central cylinder.
Lighthouse painted with red and white horizontal bands.











Every Chinese I told before about my plans says, nobody goes to Lingao, not even Chinese, what for do you want to go there? Well liked the area as no real estate or industry developments and beautiful weather and scenery......
Seems they have never seen a foreigner on a motorcycle in the greater Lingao area.

Departed Lingao Cape via a single track concrete road along the coast towards Yangpu.
Small fishing villages are scattered all along the coast line.

Cruising along the concrete road, no traffic at all afternoon and pine tree forests beside the road with a few boat builders along the tree line by the beach.
