About Us

We had our Withnail moment in the late Spring of 2008. We had spent ten years in Shanghai and had just bought local gym memberships valid for another ten years, when we realised with a jolt that we couldn’t go on. Our son had just been born. The sallow fog pressed its back against our windows. Enough was enough. It was time to make for the country.

What we needed was harmony. Fresh air. Stuff like that.

Within weeks we had moved to live in Sanya, on the tropical island of Hainan, where we started up a new company and began a new life.

We are Tim, from the UK, and Misty, from Sichuan.

This blog is mostly just a guide to some of the fun and interesting things we’ve discovered here in Hainan. We’ve included addresses and phone numbers where we can, so you can find the same places too.

If there is anything that you would like to know about Hainan, but can’t find on this website, feel free to ask us here.
