  “Street robbery was very common,” Hong continued. “But now, we can walk on the street at 10 p.m. without any concern. We have also seen better medical services, better regulated social rules, and opportunities to use the latest technologies.”

  “I used to bring rice, onions and even shampoo to Sanya when I started my winter holiday here,” Xin continued. “But now, all I need is a small backpack. My friends at home say I look like I’m going out shopping when I head to Hainan. Sanya has sufficient food and supplies in the market now. It is not a small fishing village anymore.”
