Baihuashan waterfall, Qiongzhong, Hainan island, China


A look at a lovely waterfall then a walk along a country road back to Qiongzhong town, on the tropical island of Hainan.

  • Best bit – Walking through the countryside in the sunshine with the sound of crickets all around
  • Worst bit – Seeing some poor little animals being thrown around
  • Word of warning – take lots of water with you
