The English-version lyrics of the Official City Song

You Are Invited To Visit Tianya-haijiao(《欢迎到天涯海角来》in Chinese)

Visit Tianya-haijiao, please.
The tropical climate here is marvelous.

Welcomed by the balmy spring breeze of Hainan Island,
Welcomed by the blooming flowers, you will laugh aloud.

From March to May, From August to October,
Fragrant flowers never past their prime.

Using the different modes of transportation in Haikou is a cultural experience in itself.  Within the city there is an efficient bus system that will take you anywhere you want to go.  However, if you don’t read Chinese, deciphering the bus routes can be a challenge.  Some bookstores sell city maps in English with bus routes marked on them.  At Creation Bookstore on the top of Mingju Square, the main downtown shopping area, you can find these maps.  Sometimes sell maps on top of the pedestrian bridges as well.
