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.

  • Fantastic little island not far from Xiamen with nice climate, no traffic, very relaxing and great food, small shops, excellent view from the top. Recommended if you going to Xiamen 
  • My partner and I had a full day layover in Xiamen and ended up going to Gulangyu island. It was beautiful! Everyone was so welcoming and we had a wonderful time checking out the shops and eateries. 
  • That's to gulangyu Island, and recent advance booking on the Internet became necessary. Because my friend who lives locally was thanks for reserved 9:30 ferry could board without delay. Although small island sunlight rock Pinnacle Hill down the ship, just watch for light cart (10 original) to take, sunlight rock and organ Museum we walked to 菽 Villa garden, saw the piano Museum. Along the Middle alley lined with the stalls and lunch so we had various local food. Delicious and we ate! It was a day to the good weather, while thinking of the history of the Qing dynasty.
