Xiamen Tours & China Xiamen Trips

Xiamen, located on the southeastern coast of Fujian Province, is China's cleanest and most beautiful seaport city, as well as China's most romantic leisure city.

Xiamen and its surrounding provide spectacular scenery and pleasant tree-lined beaches. Gulangyu Island, known as the Piano Island, offers amazing view of the city and features many Victoria-era style European buildings. The Buddhist Nanputuo Temple, dating back to the Tang Dynasty, is a national treasure. While Hulishan Fortress shows you the history of this Garden City, Xiamen is the best gateway to UNESCO World Heritage Site Fujian Tulou - Yongding & Nanjing Earth Buildings - exceptional examples of a building tradition and function exemplifying a particular type of communal living and defensive organization, and, in terms of their harmonious relationship with their environment, an outstanding example of human settlement.

How to plan Xiamen tour

To be frank, taking a visit only in Xiamen city will not satisfy you to the most and it is a common choice to add Fujian Tulou visit into your travel list. It usually takes 2~5 days, depending on how many earthen buildings you want to see.
