Wanning Shimei Bay – Hainan, China:
This is does not look like the typical China we’re used to seeing in the media. This photograph was taken on shores of the countries only tropical island Hainan. Visiting a friend of mine from University his sister looks out towards Jiajing Island, located off shore of Hainan’s most luxurious resorts.
Le Meridien has hosted many famous tourists including the Russian Prime Minister Dimitri Medvedev. Visiting the still pristine but rapidly developing island of Hainan I wonder what it’s future beholds.
With massive resort development projects filling the islands coast these beaches will certainly not be as beautiful or empty years from now. When we arrived at Le Meridien, we showed up and walked right onto the beach after exploring the quiet 5 star hotel.
With the potential to house thousands of tourists combined with rapid wealth and development in China places like Wanning Shimei Bay will not look like this for long so get there soon if you can!
