Yundang Lake Night Cruise – Scenic tour
Situated at the center of Xiamen’s downtown area and presenting a long blue strip on Xiamen’s map, Yundang Lake, which covers a water surface of 1.7 square kilometers, is China’s largest manmade seawater lake. The massive lake is divided into Yundang Inner Lake, Yundang Outer Lake and the Bailuzhou, or Egret Islet at the center of the lake.
Yundang Lake used to be a natural harbor where there were abundant fish and shrimp, and local people made a living by fishing. When night has fallen, hundreds of fishing boats, with their lights turning on, were moving and floating up and down in the harbor, which presented a spectacular night scene that is called “Yundang Yuhuo” or “Lights on fishing boats on Yundang Lake”, one of the eight ancient scenes of Xiamen. This also makes Xiamen lives up to its reputation of being “a city on the sea and sea in the city”.
The scene disappeared after the harbor was transformed into a manmade lake during the movement of “reclaiming land from the sea” in the 1970s. A dam, which is now the Hubin Xi Road, was built to separate the lake from the sea.
However, thanks to the government’s efforts to improve the Yundang Lake and develop urban aquatic tour, the “Cruise on Yundang” project was launched in 2012, offering us a new opportunity to explore the beautiful lake and enjoy night scene of Xiamen.
Note: This tour package is specially designed as a selective tour after the end of our main tour packages such as Tulou tour or Quanzhou tour.
