Nanshan Longevity Festival
Living in Hainan is great for your health, and Hainan residents are some of the most long-lived in the world. The Nanshan Longevity Festival, held at Sanya’s Nanshan Temple Park (南山) celebrates Hainan's oldest men and women. At the festival, large photos of the elderly are put on display, awards are given to the oldest living Hainanese, and a mountain hike is held. There are seminars on longevity and contests with games and prizes for all, but the best part is getting to meet so many of these living history treasures of Hainan.
