Xinglong Tropical Botanical Garden is located in the famous Xinglong Hot Springs Tourist Attraction in southeast Hainan, 163 kilometers south of Haikou and 97 km east of Sanya. It has a tropical monsoon climate that creates a highly suitable environment for all kinds of tropical and sub-tropical plants. With a collection of more than 1,200 plant species, the garden has now become an integrated tropical garden for scientific research, public science education, processing, and sight-seeing as well as germplasm resources protection. 

The garden is divided into five functional areas: Ornamental Plants, Experimental Demonstrations, Scientific Development, Stereoscopic Raising and Eco-Recreation. It harbors 12 kinds of plants: tropical spice plants, beverage plants, fruit trees, tropical economic forest trees, medicinal plants, palm trees, water plants, rare and exotic plants, cacti and succulents, and green vegetables. Passing through the garden, people are pleasantly surprised. Various kinds of peculiar tropical flowers and trees create a beautiful picture. The dark green mountain, the blue water, the eco-atmosphere and the fresh air wash away visitors' worries and make them feel more energetic. It's said that people should never visit Hainan without coming to Xinglong Tropical Botanical Garden.
