Known for centuries as a gateway to China, the port city of Xiamen has become a destination in itself, first to domestic visitors and now to a growing number of people from across the world. Occupying huge swathes of the coastline and the islands that lie just off it, Xiamen has plenty of shoreline to play with, and play it does, with its many waterfront promenades representing some of the best places to visit in Xiamen. Islands in the bay house some well-preserved colonial-era architecture, hidden temples, and attractive gardens. Customize your holiday with our China tour planner to create an adventure that suits you.
