Gulangyu, Xiamen

#1 of 1,265 in Shopping in China
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.

    I was in August and I was able to buy the ticket thanks to help from the concierge of my hotel. Otherwise just 3 days. I paid 35 rmb. The ferry leaves from the main ferry terminal there lies the problem. A crowd of people to embark on a schedule. ... The island has no cars and the streets are all very clean and flowery. Has beaches of tombo, so watch and there are alerts to risk of drowning. Cloudy water probably at great movement of vessels in the port of Xiamen. Recommend, but do not expect anything more beautiful in Brazil.

    Visited 15 years Buri, but in the aftermath of the travel boom of recent years and summer weekdays even crowded. Ferry tickets are not immediately available, had obliged the day purchased the ferry ticket, ferry waiting room, ferry, attractions, restaurants, where even have to queue. Certainly a beautiful landscape is protected, but is the central part of the island were at 80 Kita-Karuizawa. Was the amusement of crowds.
