Hainan Island: mountain towns

In Hainan I told myself I shouldn't just stick to the touristy cities of Haikou and Sanya but should at least venture up into the interior to visit a mountain town or two.

To find the villages, I had to trek some distance outside the town but the effort was worth it. I got to meet some farmers, and talked to them.

A farming couple outside the home up in the hill. Their pet dog provides company in this isolated place.
