Hainan Changjiang County
The Royal Geographical Society’s Hidden Journeys Project aims to enliven the flying experience and transform it into a fascinating exploration of the people, places and environments thousands of metres below by providing inspiring information to air travellers about the parts of the world they fly over.

The latest guide to be released explores the fascinating landscapes and cultures of Hainan as well as Macau, the Gulf of Tonkin, Dong Hoi, Savannakhet and Northeast Thailand along the flight path from Hong Kong to Bangkok.

The flight path crosses some of the most iconic regions of Southeast Asia and Southern China. Yet, hidden between these tourist spots are lesser known cities, farms and beautiful temples that are essential to the cultural and economic fabric of this part of the world.
A common theme amongst all of these places is the importance of transport, both domestic and international, to their modern economic growth. Whether this is a new bridge across the Mekong, a shipping route to the port of Macau or the opening of Dong Hoi Airport, improved transport across the region’s challenging physical landscape has been a catalyst for economic development.
The same landscape also provides the flight path with a striking background: for example the karst limestone features of Ha Long Bay on the Vietnamese coastline or the vast Isan Plateau of northeast Thailand.
Hidden Journeys has already revealed the breath-taking natural and human landscapes beneath flight paths including Bangkok to Sydney and Vancouver to Los Angeles. It is a not-for-profit resource free for public use, and one part of the Society’s public engagement programmes which aim to foster an informed knowledge of our world.
