Tips to travelers :-

You may contact or email the hotel (in advance before arrival) for complimentary/free of charge pick up from the airport. They also arrange free shuttle/limousine to the airport for guests checking out. Prior arrangement needed.

The hotel also provides free shuttle to RT Supermarket at 11 am everyday (2 hours advanced reservation needed). From there, you may get taxis, bus, RT Free Bus No. 1 - 11 to other destinations of interest. Nearby the RT Supermarket,
about 15 minutes walk you can reach Hainan Museum. Entrance is free and worth going.
A great way to understand the history of Haikou and Hainan, ethnic cultures and traditions.

Also a great place to shop at RT Supermarket. KFC is located in the RT Supermarket itself and McDonald is just the next block. There are tour agency, banks etc. You may take the RT No. 6  free bus to Wu Gong temple (Wu Gong Tse) - another tourist attraction. Senior citizens 55 years old and above get half price entrance fees.

However, points to consider is that the taxi fares are a bit pricey when you need to come back to the hotel at night as most taxis will charge more as they claimed that they can't get passengers after dropping clients at the hotel. Do bargain for lower fares, they might consider
