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!
