Hainan – a tropical island within the nation’s south, referred to as the “Hawaii of China” – is a playground for the wealthy and a sought-after vacation spot for retirees.
As soon as dominated by sleepy fishing villages, it’s present process a fast transformation, with new marinas for luxurious yachts, five-star resorts and duty-free buying.
After pro-democracy protests engulfed Hong Kong, Beijing has launched into an formidable marketing campaign to attract vacationers and overseas firms to Hainan. However not everyone seems to be placing out the welcome mat. Fishers concern they’ll lose their livelihoods amid the push for growth. 101 East travels to Hainan to analyze.

Change is hard but necessary, if we get too sentimental and always want to preserve things then there won't be progress. Eventually even the new development will become history in the future. Nothing stays forever, change is good.
Hail Comrade Mao and long live communism 😉
When the paradise is discovered , the native population becomes the misfits to the very land they once owned . Sounds familiar .

Great documentary tho a bit biased towards China
Morally dubious, terrible translation, and sponsor of genocides.
Hainan is attracting Chinese tourism only, Europeans and North Americans won’t visit
These media outlets should learn to cover news objectively without always trying to criticize or negate everything… when the Middle East was progressing you never hear negative news coverage despite the use of low wage labors and poor living conditions of their workers, many experienced delayed wages or not being payed properly… leave China alone it’s none of USA and West’s business… China never meddled in their affairs…good or bad… Aljazeera use to deliver great news but is slowly starting to sound like the British and western media but just a tad better…
With so many people shopping do expect any customer service I normal avoid crowded places full of Chinese or Asian peopple
China's Hawaii and Cape Canaveral !
Change the way of living is always part of impact by development everywhere in the world. Especially in China the speed is very fast! Wish for the bright change in Hainan!
AJ is controlled behind the scene by the master of the Qatari, the USA, world's only hegemon. lol
well, for your westerns, staying poor is happy huh? then why did you people do the same thing in the last century?
my question is.. wasnt there a 1 child policy? the 2 and 3 child policies are relatively new. Did that indigenous fisher family got the children just in the policy frame or does the island of Hinan have a different law? that would sound quite strange, vis a vis to the ccp..
Mecca ?islam is ban in china
If a demolition notice is posted on your wall, It means you are going to be rich

I visited Hainan, the island natives are rich because they own & selling everything at premium price, very much like Hawaii. This Channel makes islanders out to be destitute…lol
