Xiamen overview

Exquisitely kept gardens, unique islands, and stunning museums are just some of the things that make Xiamen a very desirable place to visit. The Xiamen Shuzhuang Garden, for instance, which is located by the sea and which is flanked with majestic mountains, is the perfect place for a tranquil stroll or a quiet picnic with your travelling companions. When you want the buzz of a crowd, just head down to the beautiful Nanputuo Temple, which is also the biggest temple in the region. The city is home to several quirky art galleries and museums, among them the Piano Museum. This is a perfect way for music lovers to while away an hour or two, and its gorgeous exhibits are sure to delight travellers of all ages. Take a trip down to the Botanical Gardens, too, with their carefully sculpted lakes, gently undulating hills and lovely picnic areas. These gardens are of course especially good during fine autumn days and in the heat of summer, but in the winter they can look very magical in crisp air. If you want to enjoy a great view over the city and its sights, then just climb to the top of Riguang Mountain which is a pleasant and popular walk.

Getting around Xiamen

Public buses, private taxis, and hire cars are some of the most popular ways to get around in Xiamen. If you do hire a car, then make sure to take a drive down the Gulang Huandao Road, which is well known for being the most picturesque driving route in the region, and which is often hailed as a key attraction in its own right. Located as it is around some shimmering bodies of water, the city also has a good water transportation network. Take a motor boat or a traditional dragon boat and enjoy a scenic journey from A to B.
