Winter in Hainan

Hainan is the southmost province of China and lies at the same height as Vietnam. A tropical region you could say an no one built heatings into houses and appartments.

Last winter was my first to live in Haikou and I can tell you that never in my life I had it this cold before.

First of all naturally I was not really prepared for a “winter” on an tropical island. All my wintercloths are still in Europe. We had temperatures around 6°-8°C. Now you may think “hey what is this guy complaining about?” but please take into account that the outer temperature equals more or less to the temperature in my appartment! The cold really creeps into your body step by step … some days I spent more or less in my bed, the only warm place 😉

This was before the chinese Spring Festival a month ago.

During the last day we had 34°C. A real change from winter to sommer within 4 week.

    i only can tell you, in my hometown, we don’t have any heating at all, and the temperature differs from -4°C to 38°C. and the temperature will be around 10°C for at least 4 months, and don’t forget this: there is still one to two months the temperature is below 10°C.

    Hi Dyrathror,

    Rumour has it that winter in Hainan should be between 16-25 degrees. Therefore my girlfriend and I are planning to go there for a short vacation in March/April. Probably to try diving and surfing.

    You being the source of information (since you are living there:) please let me know how it really is.
    Is the weather ok?
    When would be a good time to go to avoid millions of tourist -and peak-prices?
    Any recomondations for diving, surfing and maybe hotels?

    Thanks in advance and I hope you are having a good time down there!

    The best wishes,
