|Dining in Hainan Island|
ORDERING "Chinese food" when visiting China can be an overwhelming task. Visitors soon discover there are eight very different schools of Chinese cooking, being Beijing (or Peking), Guangzhou (or Canton), Fujian, Jiangsu, Hunan, Sichuan, Shandong and Shanghai. Hainan Island is the perfect place to savour all of these and more.
Although celebrated for its super fresh and inexpensive seafood delights, Hainan is also noted for its "Famous Four" -- Wenchang Chicken, Jiaji Duck, Dongshan Mutton and Hele Crab. Other favourites and "must-try-dishes" include Hainan Chicken, Hainan Noodles and Dongshan Pancakes. Hainan is also the right choice for vegetarian dishes, Japanese, Korean and western cuisine and a wide assortment of tropical fruit including coconut, mango and litchi.
