    Bush gas station operated out of a roadside shop by a betel nut chewing couple either drunk or high as kites, barely able to speak... just some mumbling and filling up with crappy gas, got me going again without probs till the next real gas station.

    Houchen Coffee shops popping up in the countryside along major roads and the G98 Hainan Ring Expressway, good for some breaks in an air-conditioned environment.

    The Temple of Five Lords (Wugong Ci) in Haikou: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temple_of_Five_Lords
    Five Officials' Temple or Wugong Ci in Chinese, are approximately 5 kilometers (about 3.1 miles) from the centre of Haikou City, and were originally constructed during the reign of Emperor Wanli in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).
    It was renovated on several occasions during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). Now, it is a place known for its sense of peace, tranquility and beauty.

    Lingao is situated in the north-west of Hainan Island. It borders Chengmai County to the east and Danzhou to the south with the Qiongzhou Strait to the North.
    Stopover at the famous Lingao monument out at the Lingao Cape, a large stone monument for the Hainan Island Campaign.
    Landing Operation on Hainan Island, was a series of battles fought between the Kuomintang (Nationalists) (National Revolutionary Army, NRA) and the People's Liberation Army (PLA) during the Chinese Civil War in the post-World War II period, and resulted in a PLA victory.

    Every Chinese I told before about my plans says, nobody goes to Lingao, not even Chinese, what for do you want to go there? Well liked the area as no real estate or industry developments and beautiful weather and scenery......
    Seems they have never seen a foreigner on a motorcycle in the greater Lingao area.

    Departed Lingao Cape via a single track concrete road along the coast towards Yangpu.
    Small fishing villages are scattered all along the coast line.

    Enjoyed cruising along the coastal concrete road from the Lingao monument to the Yangpu area.
    The Yangpu Ancient Salt Field is an archeological heritage site in Yantian village, on the Yangpu Peninsula in Hainan, China.
    Salt Field area comprises more than 1,000 stones, cut flat on top, which are used to evaporate seawater to produce salt.
    The stones have a thin rim around the edge to contain the water. During high tide, the surface of the stones becomes filled with seawater.
    During low tide, this evaporates, leaving the salt, which is then collected.
    The area was established around 800 AD when a group of salt workers from Putian city in Fujian province moved to Yangpu.
    Today, only a small group of villagers continue to make salt using this method and it is not their main source of income.

    A couple of weeks biking and business on Hainan Island coming to an end once again, time flies when you have good time....
    The Jialing JH600 has been washed, cleaned and stored dry and safe again, well ~ a Tropical Storm brought some wind and heavy rain to the greater Yalong Bay area during my last day but everything went smooth.
