Xiamen Travel Guide
Xiamen is a port city on China’s southeast coast, across a strait from Taiwan. It encompasses 2 main islands and a region on the mainland. Formerly known as Amoy, it was a British-run treaty port from 1842 to 1912. Many Europeans and Japanese lived on Gulangyu, today a vehicle-free island with beaches and meandering streets lined with old colonial villas.
Gulangyu is known as ‘piano island’ due to locals’ affection for the instrument. Its Piano Museum displays models from numerous countries. On the mainland, Wanshi Botanical Garden comprises temples, tropical plants and calligraphy-inscribed boulders. Xiamen University, founded in 1921, is known for its green spaces. Nearby Nanputuo Temple dates from the Tang Dynasty and sits at the base of Wulao Mountain, with trails to the top. Zhongshan Pedestrian Road is a longtime shopping thoroughfare with European-style buildings. A former artillery from 1894, Huli Shan Fortress has water views and a large number of antique cannons.
Xiamen is a very vibrant, affluent and modern place, though by Chinese standards it is a small city — only 1.9 million in the city itself and 3.6 million counting suburbs. It has many non-Chinese residents and a range of restaurants, bars and stores that cater to them. It also has several universities and some areas popular for tourism.
The most important tourist area is Gulangyu, a small island close to downtown which contains some beautiful colonial buildings and is car free. It is now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
