  • I like Nice calm and crowded touristy place, but going on the island in the evening on weekdays. Nice evening night changing atmosphere and become part of the night, seen from the top. There are wide rock in the Middle, watching a gate on the other side of the night slept there, while quite good. At night is lit up at once. It may be too bright.

  • Sunlight rock located on Gulang 嶼 highest point, into the access charge is not cheap, and a limited number, said this afternoon may have to wait for a long time, but relating to true is very beautiful and worth it.

  • The island's highest gate kiremasu climb in about 20 minutes. Walking stairs maintained at Rocky. Not came to Xiamen to sunlight rock climb for views of the Word as it is. Watch Xiamen modern buildings on the other side of the old town of the island is spectacular. Tickets deals set the piano Museum, Garden 100 Yuan. I think if you're not interested in only the sunshine rock is enough.
