A vast sea of the island, a village of the original very common, because more than 400 years that the market is unusual earthquake Joan Peking University, which scholars have not only become an earthquake investigation and study of specimens, but also a lot of people look for the dream of land. Meilan District, Haikou City, it is the speech Fengzhen Pak Kong Village, located one kilometer from the former Hong Kong Shop the sea on a small island – North Island.
From the shop before the Hong Kong Island by ferry to the north only a few minutes, just on the boat had a chance to scan the beautiful scenery is around the corner to the North Island pier, and in the last island of the moment, the kind of mystery for giving me a bit happy, has finally come to this earthquake, the mysterious legacy of the village take a closer look.
To be honest, on the island’s first impression is not very good, because the North Island ferry terminal on the transformation of a bit chaotic, coupled with very good health, but also under a heavy rain had not yet dried mud on the road, but the island is not the original ecological The development of environment or immediately attracted me, because it is noon, on the island apart from the island of fishermen, barely see the visitors, because there is no development on weekdays come to the island where few people travel.
In the North Island at the entrance there is a conch-shaped monument a letter to “North Island”, the Hainan Provincial Geographical Names Office legislation. Simple piece of legislation in the waiting room outside the monument to commemorate the two North Island moisture levee project along the coast is a coconut and a hammock, a number of old people and children in a leisurely lunch break, appears to be so quiet and peaceful.
North Hong Kong Island is not only 2 square kilometers, there are more than 200 households, more than 1,600 people, according to an old man describes, the North Hong Kong Island residents on the island since the Song Dynasty, there lived on fishing for their livelihood, but the time and the land is still connected to , and to the Ming Wanli (1605) that the market before the earthquake and the Beijing University Joan separated from the mainland into the open sea of the island, while the other 72 villages are connected to today’s undersea submarine sinking villages. 400 years of earthquake survivors in this village have been living a free life of an island world non-confrontational, perhaps because their grandparents are survivors of the earthquake catastrophe in the underlying reason why the islanders are very optimistic that in previous years a lack of fresh water, not electricity and despise the days of television, very few outlying islands, because this is their home. Now Pak Kong island conditions have greatly improved, the cost of tap water, access to electricity, with the television signals, mobile phones can be used, and many residents also covered with a small two-story Western-style house, life has become increasingly prosperous, although there are young people go to the sea and in the field job or business, but most people are still very satisfied with the current idyllic rural life.
At the seaside chat with mangroves and a fisherman, was informed that in previous years, “Hainan hot” when there is a lot of developers ready to invest in the North Island tourism and resort real estate projects, and later due to traffic and some other reasons not begun. North Island has remained intact, a beautiful ecological environment of the island, there is no noise and the noisy bustling city, walking on the Coconut Grove Village Road, linger in the sea, mangroves, sea fishing rafts Xu family to see the unique scenes of life, quietly feeling residents of the North Island and Dan Ding leisurely life, I would like to come here over the weekend when a tour is a good choice.
When leaving the island to listen to a few young men said that the North Island to build the bridge, and also development of resort tourist area, the Government has a plan, the bridge will connect the village and the city of Haikou, Wenchang Tower shop front, Hong Kong, and perhaps one day soon the North Island once again connected with the mainland by a bridge, but then I do not know whether the North Island there is quiet today ……
