Hainan Island

Trying to search in the Google Map for my father village but unable to locate it. Will be going this November in search of our family root.

Translate in English from Hainanese:

i Tek Luem Si
ii San Mui Sui

both areas mentioned are believe to be near Boon Shio Quai.

Any forrunners here who frequent Hainan Island can help. Many Thanks

Why don't you type the names out in Chinese. No map will display these place names in dialect. If you have it in Chinese, you can even look on Chinese maps online.

You can give us the names here in Chinese.

By end October, the floodwaters will recede, certainly. Then it is time to see how fast they can clean up.

I have checked with my late father relative which is in SG and was informed that my village is a small one and not listed in the google map.

It is near to WenChang (Boon Shio Kuai)

Wenchang was badly flooded recently. I guess once you get to the town, directions to the village shall be available. Wenchang is well-known.

If it is near 文昌, you can take a bus from the bus terminal/interchange (車站) from Haikou (海口) to 文昌.

According to my friend in Hainan, many areas in Hainan are experiencing floods since the beginning of Oct till now. But the prolonged raining is forecast to stop at the end of Oct.

Enjoy my stays in Hainan Island especially the village that I visited.

Sanya, Qiong Hai and Haikou traffic is crazy. Zebra crossing where predestrains have to give way to vehicles. Predestrain walkway becomes m/cycles lanes and those infront of shopping centres will becomes illegal vehicles parking lots.

Weather is cooling during end of November.

This is China, after all.

I visited over the X'mas break by train from Guangzhou. The train was ferried over to Haikou (very exciting). Haikou got fairly boring. Sanya was fantastic.

Agreed. If you notice, the right turn traffic light is always blinking in amber color. Therefore, the pedestrians have to give way to the vehicles.

There are a lot of motorbikes and electric bikes and the motorcyclists will rode their bike on the pavements.

One thing I don't really like the frequent horn sound from the vehicles.
