Haikou, sometimes called "Coconut City," is the political, economic, and cultural center of Hainan Province. It is also its transportation hub. It has a population of 1.73 million people, pleasant weather and a friendly atmosphere.

Haikou is a young provincial capital but a famous historical city. It has its origins in the Han Dynasty (206 B.C-A.D.220). By the 13th century the city was already well established as a trading port and was an important part of the Maritime Silk Road.

Haikou's famous "Five Street area" has a unique blend of Chinese, Southeast Asian and Western Architecture. These streets have witnessed the transformation of Haikou from an old port town to a flourishing coastal city.
