BOAO Forum of Asia Permanent venue
First of all thanks to Hainan life team and Hainan tourism department for showing us the wonders of hainan island. Our activity almost come to end, In our last trip we visited boao city located next to the eastern coastal city of Qionghai in Hainan Province. The city is well known as hosting the Boao Forum of Asia ,it is a non-profit organisation that hosts high-level forums for leaders fr om government, business and academia in Asia and other continents to share their vision on the most pressing issues in this dynamic region and the world at large.
Boao has been the permanent venue for its annual conference since 2012
Boao is a small town with incredibly diverse scenery, including a lake , river , the sea and the hills. It is the beauty that makes this small town the permanent site of Boao forum of Asia.
We were very excited to get a access inside to look around and even had a chance to take a picture sitting on the main stage of the Asian forum that many countries leaders presented speeches including Chinese president XIJINGPIN and Chinese premier Li KEQIANG.
BOAO city is also famous with Boao Buddhist temple and beautiful beaches including Jabe belt beach. It is a favorite destination for kite surfers as you can see fr om the photo. You can easily arrive to Boao city by railway.
In 2018, French Singer Dantes and Chinese singer Eva relased 2 songs in 4 languages (Chinese, Russian, French and English) about the Boao City.
The Boao Temple
it is definitely one of the towns highlights, it is a Buddhist temple complex like sanya's Nanshan park but it is a completely modern and seems not primarily set up for tourists. It features a lot of buddhist statues and sculptures with beautiful garden.
We've spend here totally around 1 hour, it is very authentic and enjoy the beautiful scenic landscape with elaborate eastern garden and temple architecture. The ticket price was : 23 Rmb per person
The Dragon Boad festival
When we arrived in Boao It was the Chinese Dragon boat festival, is a traditional holiday originating in China, occuring near the Summer solstice. I was lucky to take a picture of the Dragon boat race. The Dragon Boat Festival is a celebration wh ere many eat rice dumplings , and race dragon boats.
