Local Products and Handicrafts


Hainan Province is China's main producer of coffee. Every year, when coffee beans are ripe, local people harvest them timely. Then they classify coffee beans according to their quality, dry them, add cream and white sugar to coffee beans, and bake or fry them at a low fire until they are ready. Hainan coffee has its own special taste.


Mango, known as the "King of Tropical Fruit," is one of the main kinds of fruit in Hainan. Mango trees can be seen everywhere in Hainan Province.

Shell Carving

Shell carving is a handicraft carved with a smooth and bright shell. In recent years, various kinds of small shell carvings produced by the Haikou Coconut Shell Carving Factory have been well received by tourists.
