Plan Visiting: Hainan Dao, 文昌,蛟塘市,芒山村,名人山村

Hi! There

Can help me to find this 'cun' and advise us on how to go there?

We will be flying from KL.

Plan to bring my dad to visit his kampong.

He is in mid 70's now and left kampong since 7th.

We never been to Hainan.

Is it a must to pray and having a 'big makan' for eveyone in the kampong?

Btw, we dont know who else is still in the 'cun'.

Grandpa died in 1970's when we were still young.

My dad cant remember anything about the 'cun' beside the above name.

My surname is 邢

My great gradpa 辈份 is 保.

Your reply is deeply appreciated.

Thks

Emmie

Hi, Emmie,

I am a local and have been to Malaysia for many times, so I can understand a little bit Malay.

I guess your kampong should be 海南省文昌市东路镇蛟塘村委会名人山村

, for your info, your kampong has been developed to be a nature reserve base for wile bird, many people like to go there to watch bird and take local food as spending vocation.

You have to pray your ancestors, and having a 'big makan' for eveyone in the kampong?That depends on your finacial status.

Enjoy your kampong trip

Hi! Exploresanya

Many thanks for your reply.

So, I can take a taxi from airport to the kampong?

Can I stay there or I have to stay in WenChang?

If prayer needed too, what should we do?

Pray at where and how?

Sorry, I am Christian and my dad only pray to the ancestors when we go to elder uncle's house during Chinese New Year.

How much it will cost for the big makan and how to go about it.

Can you advise?

Thks

Hi! Emmie,

Just now, I call my friend whose kampong is 东路镇,she told me yes, there is a village names 芒山村, just next to 名人山村.

Yes, you can take a taxi from airport to the kampong!

Can I stay there or I have to stay in WenChang? It depends on whether your relatives invite you to stay at their house or not, otherwise, you have to stay in Haikou or Wenchang.

If prayer needed too, what should we do? Just have a discussion with the relatives in kampong!

Pray at where and how? Just have a discussion with the relatives in kampong!

How much it will cost for the big makan and how to go about it.Just have a discussion with the relatives in kampong!
