The demonstration street "Shuixiangkou" of arcade building in Haikou
The demonstration street “Shuixiangkou” of arcade buildings in Haikou will be finished being restored in June, and is scheduled to open to the public by the end of this year.

The Haikou Urban Planning Bureau started to restore the city’s old-style arcade buildings in 2010, in a bid to protect the historic architecture of Zhongshan Road.

As the most characteristic buildings in Haikou, they are rich in the complex architectural heritage of Southeast Asia. It’s said that the earliest four-archway building in Haikou was seen more than 600 years ago.

In 2009, Haikou’s arcade buildings were ranked amongst the top 10 Chinese famous historical and cultural streets.
