Qiu Jun Former Residence

Qiu Jun Former Residence is located at No. 9 Lane 3, Jinhua Road, Fucheng Town, Qiongshan District, Haikou.

It is very difficult to find. Easiest way is to start at Hai Rui Former Residence on Hongchenghu Road, opposite Hongcheng Lake.

The east end of Hongchenghu Road joins Haifu Road near the Haikou East Bus Station. Walk west along Hongchenghu road and you will find Hai Rui Former Residence on the left as you cross Dayuan road. From there walk West along Hongchenghu Road. Jinhua Road is the first on the left. It is difficult to notice because of new building construction. Jinhua Road runs alongside the new building construction site. Walk down Jinhua Road until you reach a ‘T’ junction. Turn right and then turn left at the first street. Qiu Jun Former Residence is on the left a short distance down the road. The Street number 9 is clearly marked at the entrance.
