Xin Loong (兴隆), Hainan (海南), China (中国) : Impressed by 兴隆热带植物园 (Xin Loong Tropical Botanical Garden)

Hainan, China - Part 6 - 兴隆热带植物园 (Xin Loong Tropical Botanical Garden), 兴隆 (Xin Loong)

We arrived at the hotel during the night after we had our 3 hours long journey trip from Sanya 三亚 to Xin Loong 兴隆, and of course, we went to a coffee factory (兴隆咖啡园) and had our local dinner (黎家农家宴) as well, once again, a disappointing dinner we had. :/

On the second morning, packed our luggage and we headed to the beautiful garden

All of us will be given stickers and its represent different groups of people who came to the park.

Anyway, I still keep the sticker as remembrance! :)

And now, I'm going to show what we could expect from the park, the Park do impress me quite a bit. *Well done*

So, this botanical garden was built in 1957, with an area of 400,000 square metres with 1,200 tropical plants. This garden is nearly perfect for plants to grow, it is also play a role of an important agricultural base and it is also a famous tourist spot.

Instead of other place, there's Hainanese who go to the Park for photography and even a wedding banquet, how lovely. :) Congratulation to the newly weds.

- Hop on the buggy! -

We went for a tour with buggy, the Park is a hugeeee one! I love the surrounding with all those tall trees here.

I love how the weather of Xin Loong (兴隆), cold and refreshing. Awesome part while I could wear my sweater and jacket! :)

- Dangling roots? -

A type of plants that makes picture prefect. How dreamy it would be?

- Golden Finger (金手指) -

I can't recall what the indirect meaning when people said "Gam Shou Ji".

- I love Sunflowers!! -

Couldn't agree more that sunflower is one of the hardest plant to grow, a lot of effort to take care of it.

- The Map View -

And that's the end of what we could expect at the Park. We saw various type of fruits and plants, other than those, vanilla, peppers, coco and et cetera.

There goes our day trip at Xin Loong Tropical Park. :)

Next will be heading to HaiKou (海口), another city of Hainan and it took another 3 hours drive and the temperature dropped approximately 10c, and its 11c by then!
