Take a Deep Breath and Relax Under the Blue Skies of Hainan

Dates: 2019        Location: Hainan


The bright warm sunlight shines down out of clear blue skies on Hainan’s deep blue seas, swaying palm trees, and sparkling white sands that make up the tropical island’s springtime scenery. The deep green tropical rainforests flourish, stretching up new green tendrils towards the sky, and rays of golden sunlight shine down through the clear waters to illuminate brightly colored fish and coral reefs. The only sounds are the chirping of the birds and the sighing of the waves on the shore, a far cry from the honks and shouts of the city! Come with me on a journey to Hainan, China, and take a deep breath of fresh air, perfumed with the mingled scents of tropical flowers and the clean salty sea air!
