Xiamen Island overview
 
Located on China’s southeastern coast, Xiamen (also known as Amoy) is a beautiful and relaxing port city with green hills and red flowers all seasons around. Xiamen enjoys a subtropical oceanic climate, with pleasant temperature of around 21℃. It has been an important port since the Qing Dynasty and became one of China's earliest Special Economic Zones in the 1980s.
 The city enjoys such titles as “The International Garden City”, “The National Healthy City”, “The Excellent Tourist City in China”, "The Top Ten Habitat City in China” and so on. In 2004, Xiamen won the UN-Habitat Scroll of Honor Award.
  


 
Gulangyu Islet – Historic tour
 
Gulangyu Island, an enchanting car-free islet which can only be reached by ferry, is a must-see place for all visitors to Xiamen. About 10 minutes boat trip from downtown Xiamen, Gulangyu Island is famous for its sandy beaches, crisscrossing alleys, Chinese and Western-style old villas and music culture. You can simply wander around and appreciate the old building at leisure. 


Zhongshan Pedestrian Street – Local culture
 
Apart from Gulangyu Island, the Zhongshan Pedestrian Street, which is lined with two-or three-storied arch buildings, is also a popular palace for both tourists and local people. With their upper floors overhung and covered ground floors, the arch buildings are extremely conducive for a good stroll around.
 


 
Yundang Lake Cruise – Sight seeing
 
Yundang Lake, a picturesque lake at the downtown of Xiamen, is also a good place you should see for the night life and night scene of Xiamen. Originally a natural harbor before the 1970s, the lake, which covers a water surface of 1.7 square kilometers, is China’s largest manmade seawater lake. Many skyscrapers, government and residential buildings and hotels are built around the lake, which present a spectacular scene at night.
 This tour will take you on a comfortable and relaxing journey to the above three popular tourist attractions, and offer you a different prospective of the charming costal city. Follow us, and begin a fantastic journey.
