For Indian food, you can go to The Curry Restaurant. You can find nice indian foods there. And the prices are reasonable. It's located at Room 106, No.4, 12th Lane, Commodity Street, Jiyang District.

Hi, actually Hainan is an all year round traveling destination cause the average temperature there is about 25 C throughout the year. You can take short-sleeved shirt, pants and sunglasses. Anyway, the best time to vist Hainan is during November to March in the next year.
The food in Wenchang City is a little expensive, so you'd better choose some standard restaurants instead of the super ones.

Ms.Nina,Thank you for your reply.Are you Living in Hainan?How was the weather in wen chang now?
Answered by Alice | Nov. 25, 2012 19:11

Hi, it is still hot in Wechang, with the average temp of about 24C. But it rains frequently these days. So if you go there, the summer clothes and a light coat are needed. Certainly, the rainy coat or umbrella is also necessary to be taken along.
