Hi I’m Patrick Quinn, founder of and the Hainan Forum.

Originally from Ireland, I came to Hainan in 2010 the year my son was born. Passionate about photography I started photographing all the wonderful people I met, places I’d visited and experiences I had here.

This then developed into the site which promotes culture and tourism on the island and ultimately the Hainan Forum.

I encourage every member to share their photos and experiences and tell us all more about themselves, there are so many beautiful places to visit here and things to do but not enough information in English.

Members can create blogs, photo albums, start forums & groups (hiking, cycling, food lovers, it’s all up to you), and we’re working to bring you video. So let’s get started and we’re really looking forward to hearing from you!

That first insect looks plastic :) I have mentioned those crabs living in trees to many people and i usually receive an incredulous look, the question i usually get is "how did they get there?" I like the photo of the geese BTW, and thank you for coming to the birthday party, It was a complete surprise and I had a great night. Hope you and Huan are well ...

May 1st “When I was small, and Christmas trees were tall”, (was a long long time ago). It’s good to get some words that match the day though isn’t it? (1st May by The Bee Gees) I was free this morning, Huan stayed in, so I decided to try the landfill route
