Quongzhou University is in the process of moving from its old location in the center of the island to its current location in Sanya, which is at the most southern part of the island of Hainan. The University is also in the process of a name change, in the near future it will be changed to Sanya University.
The school is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, it is by far the most tropical part of China and receives visitors from around the world, especially Russians who enjoy the warm tropical weather in the middle of the coldest time of the year. Sanya has endless white sand beaches, which seem to go on forever. These beaches are in the downtown area with numerous restaurants and shopping areas within walking distance. Unfortunately these beaches are usually overly crowded with tourist and locals, but if one were to leave the city center one would find endless deserted virgin beaches.
Quongzhou University has about 10,000 students from all over China. Most of them are interested in learning something connected to the tourist industry, so English is a must. The school is located just outside of town to the west of Sanya. All the buildings are modern and recently constructed; resounded by tropical rolling green hills. Quongzhou University places great importance to the liberal arts, which are usually neglected by most Chinese universities. .
