There are a variety of scenic spots, taking Eight Treasure Lotus Pond for example. The Eight Treasure Lotus Pond contains not only a variety of coral stones, seaweed, underwater lamps, and glass products but also various forms of tropical marine ornamental fishes in the space. Under the light, people seem to be in a magical underwater world. Besides, the two ferocious gigantic guardians enshrined and worshiped in Renwang Palace deserve a visit. These two generals, with bulging eyes and noses, are bare-chested, strong and armed, looking like Hercules and warriors. The two guardians were originally generals of Emperor Zhou in the Shang Dynasty (1600 BC-1046 BC) whose names were Zheng Lun and Chen Qi respectively. Afterward, they were instructed by a goddess and were endowed with magic. Zhenglun snorted, sounded like a bell, and emitted two beams of white light, sucking the soul. Chen Qi opened his mouth and a yellow halitus spurted out, which could smash the soul. That is the origin of the two statues in Renwang Palace.
Then you will enjoy your lunch at the temple where vegetarian dishes are provided.
In the afternoon, you will visit Tianya Haijiao Scenic Area, covering an area of 16.4 square kilometers in total. It got its name from the two huge stones inscribed with "Tianya" (in Chinese, tianya means the skyline.) and "Haijiao" (in Chinese, haijiao means cape.), and the "Tianya Haijiao Tourist Area" was inscribed by Mr. Guo Moruo, a famous Chinese writer. The natural landscape in Tianya Haijiao Scenic Area is composed of large beach rock, Swa Horse Ridge Mountain, Tianya Bay, sand, and seawater. Standing in the southwest of Tianya Haijiao Scenic Area are the intersecting Riyue Stones (In Chinese, Ri refers to the sun; Yue means the moon.), inscribed with the characters "sun" and "moon" in Chinese respectively. Thus, they obtained their name. The two stones constitute the "heart" shape, so they are also called "love stones". Legend has it that in ancient times, there was a young couple in the palace who were deeply in love, but they were not allowed to be together due to the palace rules. They escaped from the palace and made a long journey to Hainan Island. But the pursuers sent by the imperial court still found them. They didn’t want to be torn apart again. They decided to die together. After saying a few words to his wife affectionately, the husband jumped into the sea, and then his wife also jumped into the sea. From then on, the two heart-shaped stones rose from the sea. That is the origin of Riyue stones.
