Haikou City, praised as the 'Coconut City', is the capital of Hainan Province, China's second largest island. The city features beautiful sunshine, crystal water and soft sand. It is the provincial administrative center of Hainan as well being the focus of the local economy, culture and transportation. It stands at the northern end of Hainan Island, on the west bank of the Nandu River estuary. This river is the longest on the island and the city's name appropriately means 'Mouth of the Sea'. Haikou City has evolved from a simple sightseeing city to an attractive seaside resort and business center. The services for visitors to the city are being extended with the aim of establishing the city as Southern China's key center for tourism.
