Tianya Haijiao is a Chinese idiom that was first used to express feeling homesick. Over the years Tianya Haijiao became enriched with more cultural essence, which further enriched this idiom Tianya Haijiao.

How did Tianya Haijiao get its name? During the Qing Dynasty, Cheng Zhe, the administrator of Yazhou County, Hainan Province engraved the Chinese characters Tianya on a rock near the seaside. Later, Wang Yi, a famous general who made huge contribution during the anti-Japanese War, wrote down the Chinese characters Haijiao next to the rock that had the Tianya inscription.
