It may seem like an unusual place to find an oasis of calm and natural wonder. But in the heart of Haikou city, you can discover exactly that.
Leave all the stresses and strains of everyday life behind you and revive your senses with a visit to the Wuyuanhe National Wetland Park, on the west coast. It’s a feat of nature that stretches from the Yongzhuang Reservoir in the south to the Wuyuan River Estuary in the north.
Step from city life into a huge green space, where you can stroll around at your pace, fully appreciating this stunning ecological environment that is bursting with life and colour. The Park has a wonderful estuary at its heart, dividing golden sands and leading into the beautiful blue sea.
You can’t fail to spot the plentiful tropical flowers as you go on your walk of discovery, as well as all sorts of varieties of lush, green plants - including those who love the watery environment.
The Park is home to rich and diverse wildlife too. For bird lovers, you will be in spotting heaven. Egrets, ducks and tropical birds are all here waiting to be admired. You might even be lucky enough to see some migratory species, those who stop by on their annual journeys. Don’t forget to pack your binoculars to get a good look at these amazing creatures!
