  • During the Spring Festival, in the morning almost 10 points about 20 to the Gulangyu. After the island did not go directly, walked a long way after the Sun Rock. The first time you want to go up and see a lot of people in line. It was not until 12 o'clock noon that the Sun-rock temple (as if it was Simon) went up. At the top of the time a lot of people lined up, there is a patrol in arranging passenger diversion, section on the peak of the sightseeing station to stay and take photos. Rock top of the scenery is very good, a glance at the panorama of Gulangyu, it is worth taking photos.
