We associate things like brilliant clear skies and pristine ocean waves with our mental image of Hainan. In Changjiang Prefecture in western Hainan is located an iconic, honest-to-God desert – it’s definitely something you shouldn’t miss.



This coastal, tropical desert will remind visitors of Middle Eastern countries like Kuwait or Saudi Arabia. Trekking in the desert will require endurance and skill, and can definitely be a trying exercise for the unprepared.




Defying the arid desert, some hardy plants and grasses still grow undeterred amidst the flat, sandy plains.



Some dunes, however, reach 50 meters in height. Here is where the cactuses and wild pineapples grow, and one can occasionally catch a glimpse of a small stream flowing between the sand dunes.


Some of the most magnificent sights of the Hainan desert can be seen at sunset. When the sky melds with the ocean, the orange glow of the sunset tints both the ocean and the golden sands with its color, and it seems as if the world has melded into one. The distinctive rock structures will also capture your attention, as if they were rising up from the ground like the fingers of a bound giant. No matter what your tastes, however, you cannot pass up this golden opportunity to visit the Hainan desert.
