CYCLE TO XINGLONG
Our second cycling day is a big century ride - 110 km, but on flat roads all the way! After breakfast, our ride starts from the hotel and meanders along the Wanquan River, or the River of Ten Thousand Springs, to Liuke village. Here we'll take a quick visit to the Cai Family Courtyard, "the first home of overseas Chinese in Hainan", a large historic mansion built in 1934 with the proceeds of a rubber plantation fortune made by several migrant Chinese brothers. After a short visit, we keep cycling to Heyue, a small town, for lunch. In the afternoon, we'll ride a long section of Hainan's most stunning coastal road, which is also a section of the annual "around-the-island" cycling race. After heading inland, our destination is Xinglong, set in lush tropical countryside, and famous for its Tropical Botanic Garden and hot springs. We will stay in the hot spring hotel and enjoy a Hainan special sea food pot for dinner. After dinner, you can swim or soak in the hot spring to wash the fatigue of the days ride away.
