March 2017 – Wuzhizhou Island, China (三亚·蜈支洲岛)
You wouldn’t believe me if I told you China has white sandy beaches and pearl blue sea. I wasn’t convinced either before I visited. Needless to say, I was surprised that such a gem does truly exist.
So pretty right? I love how the pagoda stretches out into the sea, a perfect spot to daydream.
The island itself is tiny at only 1.48km squared, off the coast of Hainan Island. Even in March, it was super sunny and warm. It definitely has the south east Asia feel.
We decided to explored further into the island, away from the tourists crowded around the beach. What we saw was a garden full of beautiful colours, like an endless flow of flowers…
Even the peacock is just chilling in the sun…
Dad and I trekked to the opposite end of the island, to the point called 观日岩, aka a cliff side rock perfect for watching the sunrise. Unfortunately, we missed the sunrise, but did catch two fish kissing ^_^
The island is also famous because of this Chinese film – 私人订制 (“Personal Tailor”). They took quite a few scenes around this swimming pool.
Strolling along this sea viewing walkway was incredibly beautiful, watching the clear blue water hitting the rocks, and glisten under the sun.
Since we were at an island, let’s not forget to play in the sea…
Hope you have enjoyed some of the snaps from my trip to Wuzhizhou Island. It was a beautiful location I never expected to see in China. Now time to go back to the main island.
Before I leave, don’t forget to stay happy!
