Local Hainanese Food
In Xincun Town, not too far from the Westin, there are a number of great local restaurants. Of course, you have to order Hainan chicken, also known as Wenchang chicken, which is probably the most famous Hainan dish. Fresh fish and seafood are also obvious choices. Hainan food is otherwise fairly similar to the rest of the mainland, but lighter and less oily.
