While heading out of Haikou (G324 National Highway) had quick pitstop at the Volcano Cluster Park (would personally call it a cluster f**k) for future Haikou visits but taken that one of the "must visit places in China" as its a typical tourist trap crowded with tourist groups by the bus load. The park hast just a few small mountains with some holes on top anyway..... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haikou_...Global_Geopark

Rolled down National Road G324 to Yalong Bay (Sanya) from Haikou, the road goes through the middle of the island and covered the trip previously (JL sidecar run in this thread).
Nothing major to report, seems a anti drug campaign going on as I have seen a few signs today.

Funny coincident, while I loaded the bike up in Haikou, got a phone call about my mates and family boarding the plane up at HQ Airport Shanghai and thought to myself, hey ~ Top Gear style race, who is first at the Yalong Bay / Sanya hotel reception? The others won by approx. 15 minutes....

The mighty Jialing ADV Cruiser met the Big Golden Lion at Yalong Bay Sanya on 15:30hrs. Saturday 30/03 (my final destination for the Shanghai - Sanya Run to the Sun meeting mates and family). The Jialing JH600 motorbike performed very well and deserves a good rest for a few days, only problem was the fried battery in Jiangxi province.

Sanya.... balmy +30 degr. celsius and the sky is a perfect shade of blue.....

security zone…. nuff' said….





Sanya probes sex party rumours
SHANGHAI DAILY Apr 6, 2013

Government officials in Sanya said yesterday they were investigating rumors of sex and drugs parties at a trade show, aimed at China's richest people, in the Hainan Province city.
Online posts featured photographs of high-profile celebrities and young Chinese models at the Hainan Rendez-Vous Lifestyle and Yacht Show held from last Saturday to Tuesday.
The posts quoted "participants in the event" as saying one model earned 600,000 yuan (US$97,000) from sex parties over three evenings and that more than 2,000 condoms were used at just one party.

Several celebrities quickly responded to the rumors stating they were either not at the event or clarifying what really happened.
"Time will tell and the truth should be known: My family is the most important part in my life," wrote Wang Xiaofei, a millionaire businessman who is married to Taiwan actress Barbie Hsu, on his microblog.

Wang said he was in Beijing and Taiwan when the yacht show was being held. He even posted screenshots of the flight information from his mobile phone to prove his innocence.
Xu Yajun, husband of Hsu's sister, Taiwan actress and TV hostess Dee Hsu, wrote on his microblog that either the "sex party things" were purely rumors or something that very few people did during the event. Other celebrities told reporters they took part in events at the show but described them as "high-end" gatherings or wine parties. Some said the rumors were probably spread by people who weren't able to join them. The event's organizer published an announcement denying the online allegations.

"False reports about the event have been spread online, damaging the reputation of the event by spreading information unrelated to the company," the announcement said.
"Currently all the rumors widely spread online are not true. The company has never organized such parties and never authorized anyone to do so. All the participants in the event can prove that such things never happened." According to the rumors, police in Sanya were said to have raided a party and taken some people away for drug tests. However, police have not commented so far.

The annual Hainan Rendez-Vous lifestyle show features hundreds of luxury brands of yachts, business jets and other products.
Last year's event in Sanya attracted more than 20,000 visitors, according to its official website.

Back to regular hard island life and bike cruising, went down to Sanya Bay watching the Sanya Cricket Club as some mates play this "game" or lets say look the part while drinking beers…..

Departed Yalong Bay to head up the West Coast to stay with a mate involved in a huge construction project (hotels and amusement park) after a pit-stop at Sanya Dolphin Sportsbar (Dadonghai): http://www.sanyadolphin.com



Did a bit of grocery shopping opposite Dolphin Sportsbar, called Summer Mall (Corner's Deli 5th.floor for future Sanya visitors, pricey ~ but they carry the best range of imported western food products in greater Sanya area: http://www.corner-s.com

A few new "No Motorcycle" signs are up around Dadonghai and Sanya CBD but seems nobody cares.



Quick sprint up on the G98 Expressway as motorcycles are not banned it seems....

Took the Nanshan exit to cruise up the Western coast line (National Road G225) but skipped visiting Nanshan once again as its by far the most popular and crowded tourist attraction on the island today. Look at Nanshan here: http://www.nanshan.com/en/





Some praying going on at the street entrance to the Nanshan Cultural Tourism Zone.......

The Salt Field (Incun - Yinggehai at Hainan West Coast facing Vietnam) going on forever....
Located in the south-western seashore of Ledong County, the salt field is one of its largest kinds in Hainan and has long been a famous fishery production base. The beach here slopes gently and the sand on it is fine and white and soft to feel. Established in 1985, the salt field covers an area of 38 km2. As the ridges of Jianfengling block the way of north wind, cloud and rain, the salt field exposes to the scorching sun all year round and the seawater here is the saltiest in the world. Sun and high salinity in seawater are the advantages that this salt field enjoys as a quality salt producer.

Trail riding around the mountains between Dongfang / Longmu Bay and native burial sites are scattered everywhere in the mountains and beside the roads.

Next stop up the West Coast = Dongfang with Basuo Port (large harbour city with seafood trading / trawlers) and the first KFC I have come across on the West Coast and outside of Haikou / Sanya.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dongfang,_Hainan







Basuo had the POW Camp Hasho, [Basuo Town] on the west coast of Hainan Island during WW2 with Australian and Dutch prisoners.

They still have a prison outside of town today and the prison has huge greenhouses behind to keep the inmates busy I guess, not shown in the prison pics......
