The Beauty of the Hainan Island to be Discovered

About Archaic Rhyme
Prior to traveling around the whole island, I considered Sanya as a synonym for the whole Hainan Island, and I believed a lot of tourists also have such a sense of identity. Sanya is certainly a beautiful, stylish, and uniquely attractive seaside tourism city. However, in the central and western region of Hainan Island, there are still many cities and counties not well-known by more people such as Dingan, Chengmai, Tunchang, Qiongzhong, Changjiang, Dongfang, Ledong, and Baisha, and they also have very rich and unique tourism resources with a long history, profound cultural and beautiful scenery. And even earlier world-renowned Xinglong hot Spring, as well as Qionghai, Wenchang, Wanning and other places affected by the Boao Forum for Asia, China¡¯s Aviation Satellite Launch Base and other international projects have been recognized by tourists where still have a lot of the beauty of the island to be discovered.
Even if we have classified endless scenery and beauty, we can screen and list only a few for more tourists to go explore and to enjoy.
