Head south and avoid the oncoming freeze this November, as the Hainan International Youth Festival returns for its second edition. Expect beachside fun, pool parties, and chances to meet like-minded people.
Happening from Friday to Sunday, November 24 to 26, the festival will take place in Lingshui County on Hainan province. The county is located in the island’s south, and has a tropical climate throughout most of the year.
Lingshui is known for its mountain ranges that define its tropical borders, and the county makes up part of the Chinese Riviera. Events at the Hainan International Youth Festival will take place in the midst of the Lingshui’s natural surroundings: a pool party, water sports and games, concerts and DJs, and a water splashing festival. Watch the video above for a glimpse at what to expect.
The county is also home to the Li people, and festival-goers will have a chance to explore the local culture during a visit to a local village. A tour of Nanwan Monkey Island, a nature reserve for macaques, is also planned.
A three-day ticket includes all meals from dinner on Friday to breakfast on Sunday, and two-nights stay in a double room of a 5-star hotel (travel to Hainan and to Lingshui train station is not included). Also available are one-day packages. Only 120 tickets are available to people from each of the five continents, so scan the QR code below to secure your spot today.
