Hi Lim Lay Geok. Taking shuttle bus from the airport to the downtown is always the best choice for passengers. This kind of bus drives from Haikou airport to Hotel of civil aviation (民航宾馆) every half an hour, starting at 05:30 and ending at 21:00. The following are the stops along the bus route: Haikou airport (海口机场) – Green garden (绿色佳园) - Jinlin garden (金霖花园) – Changmao garden (昌茂花园) – HNA mansion (海航大厦) – Hotel of civil aviation (民航宾馆). This no-stop bus does not stop until passenger wants off at any stop. Hope it assists you well. By the way, China Highlights can offer tour package in Haikou at a competitive price.
