Food street offering in foodcourt style in more like a restored building. Many of the dishes are re-heated for your order so don't expect great tasting flavors. You need to get a prepaid card on the grounds; be sure to get your refunds if there is any leftover credits. A shopping center called Friendship Commercial Plaza is next to QiLou... More

This is an area in downtown Haikou with several streets with buildings bulit in Qilou style. So me streets are restored and some are not. It is a nice place to walk and enjoy some drink in one of the new cafés and restaurants

Local food, and especially street food is always a focus of our travels. As far a food streets in China this so far ranks near the bottom. But it was ok and had a few unique foods. The pineapple rice is a local favorite and was pretty good. You have to get a card at the front left to put... More

If you have an interest in History, this area is worth a stroll through. From memory dates back to the 1600's, with all the original buildings

I had a ball visiting Qilou...it exceeded my expectations. Lots of food stalls with yummy pot stickers, seafood (oysters :)), Hainan Chicken and more. Take anyone here (including business travelers)...they will have fun. I ate tons of oysters and drank local beer...impossible not to have fun.

I have another flight ticket to Haikou, so I surely would come back to this small city and this food stall again. Enjoy the affordable food, especially Baoluo Noodle.

The price here is reasonable. Compared that to sanya , which will be more expensive by two to three times. You need to purchase a prepaid card first then use the prepaid card to buy the food. You can refund the card when you are done.
