Gulangyu, Xiamen
(4.3/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
Take the ferry from Xiamen City to Gulangyu to appreciate its scenic beaches and architecture influenced by European building styles. Only electric buggies and government-authorized electric cars may drive on the "traffic-free" island, which means that pedestrians get to enjoy clean, unpolluted air. While there, seek out the piano museum, the imposing statue of Koxinga, the Chinese military hero, and the many churches that remain from the island's diverse foreign settlers. Put Gulangyu and other Xiamen attractions into our Xiamen trip itinerary maker, and watch your holiday take shape.
