"It's a marvelous island, with unique views of the magnificent moai statues and the beautiful ocean," she says.

"It's tranquil."

Some archeologists believe the early Rapa Nui people created the moai to honor their ancestors or other celebrated people.

The island also hosts an ancient ritual in which competitors climb seaside cliffs, swim to Motu Nui islet to collect sooty tern bird eggs and swim back to Easter Island.

Ma also explored the Casablanca wine region between Santiago and Valparaiso city. She visited the former residence of Chilean poet and politician Pablo Neruda in Valparaiso. And she enjoyed panoramic views of the bay and graffiti-coated walls.

Ma is among a growing number of Chinese travelers discovering Chile, a country that spans South America, Oceania and Antarctica.
