4. Taste Sanya's featured summer food

As a tropical city, Sanya has many featured summer snacks.

Qingbuliang is a dessert that is favored by most Hainan natives in the summer months. Its ingredients include green beans, red beans, watermelons, tortoise jelly, tapioca pudding, raisins, as well as some coconut juice and coconut milk. It helps people cool down from the summer heat.

Coconuts are natural cooling drinks in tropical locations, and are even more delicious when frozen. Green coconuts taste the best due to their sweet water and jelly-like pulp.

Mangoes are the fruit of choice in summer. They are used as an ingredient in various dishes, such as mango ice.
