A Dish with Fresh Appearance but Strong Taste Inside

If you ask people from Haikou, Hainan Province's capital city, the most obvious characteristic of Hainan cuisine, the answer would be the same: it's fresh! [Photo: CRIENGLISH.com]

If you ask further: What difference does freshness make between your cuisines and, let's say, Cantonese cuisine?

The answer would be: there's no difference. Our dishes are actually part of Cantonese cuisine. All the dishes are fresh and delicious.

This is Haikou cuisine, a symbol of people from Hainan. They work and live on their own strength; preferring this over taking someone else's charity. Neither do they place high value in material possessions. They cherish any present provided by nature and cherish the indigenous Li and Miao ethnic minorities, along with the island's Southeast Asian culture, as they do the surrounding plains and mountains. Fresh, relaxed, appreciative and undemanding, all these characteristics of the people and their food make Haikou.

The trees sway, nudged by the soft ocean breeze. It's one of the main reasons why many tourists choose Haikou as a destination. Along with its picturesque coastal scenery, the city's appeal is hidden in its old streets, where one can taste Haikou's delicious, unique food. The trip might last for just several days, but the food will give your taste-buds something to remember.
