Garden Island

Known for centuries as a gateway to China, the port city of Xiamen has become a destination in itself, first to domestic visitors and now to a growing number of people from across the world. Occupying huge swathes of the coastline and the islands that lie just off it, Xiamen has plenty of shoreline to play with, and play it does, with its many waterfront promenades representing some of the best places to visit in Xiamen. Islands in the bay house some well-preserved colonial-era architecture, hidden temples, and attractive gardens. Customize your holiday with our China tour planner to create an adventure that suits you.

Where to stay

Look in the western half of Xiamen to find the majority of its accommodations. Near the port, a number of high-rise hotels dominate the main squares and look over the city's main sights and green spaces. Work your way through the side streets and you'll find a number of family-run guesthouses, budget-friendly hostels, and rental apartments. Gulangyu Island, ever popular with domestic and international tourists, offers a wealth of rental villas, basic hostels, and pleasant family-run hotels.
