It's a museum with historical story about sunken ship 1000 years ago and the Guangdong Government make project for took the ship and still doing some research... More

Zhapo town is nice. They have a swim park with rides for the kids. They have a nice Boardwalk that has many places to grab a full dinner or just a snack. Plenty of nice spots to grab a drink or two. The only draw back is they make you stay in a certain area to swim in the ocean.... More

Typical beach. Nothing special. There are boundaries so you can't swim everywhere you want. There are events and night time activities such as fireworks if you go during the right season.

This little island is much more accessible and cheaper than Hainan. Easy to get to and definitely worth a visit. Gets crowded in Summer, but we were there out of season so it was relatively empty. Taxis will try rip you off, but motorbike taxis are inexpensive and there is a free bus(the blue one) that circles the island. Avoid... More

Driving down for about two and half hours from Zhongshan, Zuhai or Guangzhou, you come to Hailing Island. I love it! Nothing to do with horrible Hainan (Sanya), at least so as I experienced it. Unfortunately probably because of a lack of knowledge in tourism management Zhapo, the main coastal city is nothing but a dead place, especially at night.... More

Took the motorcycle taxi from the bus station. This is a fairly new museum which houses the 900-year old shipwrecked Nanhai No.1 which was salvaged several years ago. We spent hours walking through this museum which focuses on the aspects of China's maritime history and advances in underwater archaeology. All exhibits were explained in Chinese and English. The salt water... More

The Silk Road Maritime Museum is housed in the new architectural designed Crystal Palace Museum on the 10 mile beach Hailing Island. An entrance fee of RMB80 per adult or RMB40 per child gains entrance. The museum depicts the salvage of the Nanhai 1 and its relics of jade and other trade. An interesting exhibit for an hour before exiting... More

The restaurant Italy Square was fantastic. The FIREWORKS until 2AM every morning is a nightmare. A true living nightmare. And no one gives a care.
