Haikou Banana Hostel is a converted villa located on Haidian Island, in the north of Haikou city. The tropical climate means that Haikou is often at its most bustling in the evening. On an evening on Haidian Island the streets fill up with tropical fruit stalls, outdoor bars, and many small outdoor restaurants selling various local dishes from BBQ’ed seafood to Chao Bing (a favourite snack for a warm evening which consists of the fruit of your choice blended and frozen before your eyes with a special device). There are also many newly built outdoor swimming pools and hot springs which are a pleasant way to relax during a warm day or evening. The rest of Haikou City offers many interesting old Hutongs, small temples, fishing ports, beaches and shopping streets to explore.
