Gulangyu, Xiamen

(4.2/5 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.

  • Only civic available is one thing, and three landing on the island is in two other tourism for tourists. It is arrived in about 20 minutes from 10 minutes to the island, walk along the sea from the pier and feel good walking course. Does not seem into the city and shop for a variety of foods in China and European-style buildings can be found.
