Chinese Idiom Story “天涯海角”

The “edge of heaven and the corner of the sea” both refer to the remotest place. Hainan Island, located in the southernmost part of China, was considered the remotest place in ancient times. Su Shi, a famous poet of the Northern Song Dynasty, was exiled there in his later years. It is said that the two characters “Tian ya” (tiān yá 天涯) on a huge rock on the southernmost tip of the island were written by Su Shi.
This idiom refers to the remotest places or a very long distance between two people.

天的邊緣(天涯),海的角落(海角),都是指非常遙遠的地方。位于中國最南端的海南島,自古以來被人們認爲是“天涯海角”。北宋時代的大文學家蘇轼,晚年被貶官來到這個地方。傳說海南島最南面巨石上的“天涯”兩個字,就是蘇轼寫的。
這個成語用來形容極遠的地方,或者兩個人彼此相隔遙遠。
